Critic Reviews



Based on 16 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Smith delights in these offbeat personalities and their jerry-rigged accoutrements, but the real joy in the film comes from the happy interaction between the subjects and their creations.
Austin Chronicle
Smith's film is a celebration of quirkiness, eccentricity, and certain individuals' tendency to let it all hang out, and damn the consequences.
Chicago Sun-Times
The five subjects of Home Movie at least know exactly why they live where they do and as they do, and they do not require our permission or approval.
Entertainment Weekly
Smith profiles five extraordinary American homes, and because the owners seem fully aware of the uses and abuses of fame, it's a pleasure to enjoy their eccentricities.
Suffice it to say that Chris Smith's Home Movie is the most bananas episode of ''Cribs'' ever. The film is Smith's ballad of the wacky homeowner.
In true Chris Smith fashion, he seems far less interested in the homes themselves than in the touching relationship between homeowner and abode.
If one's domestic environment is a kind of autobiography, then the five households visited by this entertaining documentary reveal fascinating lives indeed.
New York Post
A documentary mosaic of kooky Americana.
Slight and whimsical.
There's a lot of bad hair and incoherent, drug-addled remarks, but inside a minute we get the joke, and it isn't much.
