Critic Reviews for The Kindness of Strangers
A syrupy brew thick with twee and an abundance of cringe-inducing moments pulling at heartstrings.
The movie functions like one of those star-studded Garry Marshall ensemble movies but made terribly sad until the last few minutes, when a tacked-on happy ending arrives in time for the credits.
[D]ear lord, I've been searching high and low for something nice to say about this mess, and I have come up nearly empty.
The movie, so determined to celebrate small acts of kindness among those who have least, feels a little too calculated and emphatic - a tearjerker that doesn't quite draw tears.
A problem here is that almost all the characters are victims.
I think they've probably hit bottom with this howler, a criss-crossing ensemble piece set in New York and featuring a rogues' gallery of non-characters slowly learning to appreciate the transformative power of (sick bucket please) "forgiveness".
