Philadelphia Inquirer
Smart, suspenseful, satisfyingly unpredictable.

New York Daily News
One of the most skillful, mesmerizing, tense and satisfying time-warp thrillers ever made.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
Likely to appeal to the fans of "The Sixth Sense," "Ghost" and other movies where the characters find a loophole in reality. What it also has in common with those two movies is warmth and emotion.

Entertainment Weekly
May be the first time travel fantasy to move grown fellows with 401(k) accounts to tears.
75
San Francisco Chronicle
A fairly wonderful movie about fathers and sons and the mystery of time.

Chicago Tribune
Corny and far-fetched it may be, but Frequency works - except for some stretches when it doesn't.
75
Christian Science Monitor
Emmerich's screenplay gains emotional punch from its sincere concern for family values, but science-fiction fans may be disappointed by the limited exploration of its fascinating time-travel premise.
75
Miami Herald
A very complicated movie. It is also pretty wonderful.
75
New York Post
Had me watching through misty eyes, at least for the first half.

Rolling Stone
The time shifting raises questions the movie never answers, but it's hard not to enjoy the ride.
63
USA Today
This surprisingly sentimental science-fiction thriller boasts enough fresh twists to satisfy time-travel junkies.
