Critic Reviews for My Life

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (7)

This is the kind of bittersweet, dire-affliction performance that always bowls over the Motion Picture Academy voters. But this time, assuming they nominate the picture, even they will be right.

The sincere, often touching story tugs shamelessly at the heartstrings.

October 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The only thing dense and expansive... is the sentimentality.

October 25, 2018 | Full Review…

If there are a few nuggets of wit and wisdom buried under the film's disease-of-the-week surface, Rubin doesn't find them.

October 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Even as the characters grow huffy and "confront" each other, the movie never loses its compulsive desire to soothe.

October 25, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

My Life should be a more rigorous and single-minded film; maybe it started that way, before getting spoonfuls of honey to make the medicine go down.

Audience Reviews for My Life

This was really slow-moving to me, and it was hard to stay interested. Keaton's character wasn't very likable until about the last 30 minutes, and at that point I was bored and waiting for the movie to end.
