Entertainment Weekly
The superb screenplay won an award at Cannes this year for good reason.

Rolling Stone
As ever, Freeman delivers miracles; he's as good as it gets.

San Francisco Chronicle
A wonderfully twisted comedy.
88
Boston Globe
It's lively, edgy, full of zigs and zags, juicy performances, and offbeat fun.
88
Chicago Tribune
The movie has a deliberately screw-loose feel.
88
Charlotte Observer
Betty moves into Coen Brothers territory, a land so unreal that horrific behavior wrings laughter from a disbelieving audience.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
One of those films where you don't know whether to laugh or cringe, and find yourself doing both. It's a challenge: How do we respond to this loaded material?
75
New York Daily News
A black comedy that features Renee Zellweger as the most adorable psychiatric-trauma victim ever.
75
New York Post
This oddly cheerful, decreasingly dark comedy actually works and can boast some of the most enjoyable performances of the year.
63
USA Today
Observing Zellweger as she dispenses her brand of movie magic definitely is good for what ails you.
54
Mr. Showbiz
Badly photographed, clumsily edited, and lacking any discernable cinematic style.
