Todd McCarthy
The Hollywood Reporter
"[It] is more conventionally conceived than some of his best work but benefits from sterling turns from a wonderful cast, most notably Dustin Hoffman and, no kidding, Adam Sandler."  POS

Peter Debruge
Variety
"The best Netflix Original film to date (...) The best role in 15 years for Adam Sandler (...) Undeniably amusing"  POS

David Ehrlich
IndieWire
"A great Adam Sandler performance makes 'The Meyerowitz Stories' one of Noah Baumbach's best (...) [It] isn’t the wittiest or most exciting movie that Noah Baumbach has ever made, but it might just be the most humane."  POS

The Playlist
"The blood-temperature familiarity feels comfy [but] there is still the nagging sense that we’re just passing the time here, in a world that doesn’t resemble real life as much as it resembles other movies we’ve been fond of before."  NEU

Sam Haysom
Mashable
"It's moving, it's funny, it's incredibly well written, and — perhaps most memorably — it's a reminder of just how damn good Adam Sandler can be when he's cast in the right role."  POS

Jordan Hoffman
Vanity Fair
"If Noah Baumbach’s dysfunctional family doesn’t convince you that Sandler is a great dramatic actor, nothing will."  POS

Steve Pond
The Wrap
"An amusing adult comedy that finds some real grace notes in the homestretch. And it made Adam Sandler seem perfectly suited to the Cannes Film Festival, which is an accomplishment all by itself."  POS

Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian
"Noah Baumbach’s latest boasts smart writing and a strong ensemble cast, but it’s Stiller who steals the show with a remarkable display of emotion (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Tim Grierson
Screendaily
"Noah Baumbach writes a new, richly warm variation on a favourite theme: the maddening impossibility of family (...) Hoffman is superb (...) [It] may represent Adam Sandler’s most nuanced screen work."  POS

Dave Calhoun
Time Out
"A sharp comic melodrama packed with lots of truths. It avoids cruelty (...) and it walks the minefield of raising kids with humour and compassion (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Donald Clarke
Irish Times
"The picture is a welcome addition to one of the great contemporary comic oeuvres (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
