Critic Reviews for Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score)

All Critics (82) | Top Critics (17)

What the film does sustain, and quite remarkably, considering its serious theme, is a delicately comic tone. That's due in large measure to the screenplay by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

We remain engaged due to quiet performances made all the more impressive by how they cut through such noisy visual style.

It has a stylized, low-key eccentricity... Nighy is just fantastic.

June 12, 2020 | Full Review…

One of those comedies that teeters on the edge of being dark, irredeemable, bitter, and funny... But it's an enjoyable film.

June 12, 2020 | Full Review…

A sometimes wobbly, sometimes engaging, always well-acted tale of family estrangement and reconciliation.

June 12, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This extremely dry film mixes humor and melancholy to distinctive, if muffled, effect. Take away the muffled part, and that's very Nighy, too.
