Critic Reviews for Dumplin'
...there's so much willful, joyful uplift in the final scenes, it's hard not to buy into every aphorism re-upped from the classic Dolly playbook.
This is a generous movie, and an unrepentant fantasy at that, so it's hard not to meet it with openheartedness.
"Dumplin'" has been so carefully calculated, it's a wonder it plays as warmly and sincerely as it does.
Dumplin' isn't a story that uses a skinny, conventionally pretty protagonist to pick apart a realm that rewards women exactly like her. It's more imaginative than that, open to the idea that beauty itself is more expansive and subjective.
A movie so lifeless you'd have more fun guessing the Netflix niche group that the production is supposed to satisfy.
