Variety
Helmed by Steve Sawalich, this real-life dramedy is anchored by Michael Sheen’s captivating performance as the severely handicapped, profoundly acerbic Art Honeyman.

Chicago Reader
Steven Sawalich directed with invention and heart.

Chicago Tribune
Starts strong but eventually collapses under its weighty sense of responsibility.
63
Just remember that its hero stands for countless others.

The performances are all solid, but Sheen, last seen as Tony Blair in "The Queen," is so good in his incredibly demanding role that he makes the natural discomfort people feel at seeing someone so debilitated disappear completely.
60
Village Voice
Sheen, like the movie itself, is trying too hard to inspire when the story doesn't need the help.
50
If it does nothing else, Music Within shows us how deeply Ron Livingston's amiable face can take us into a movie. But even likable mugs like his -- remember him in "Office Space"? -- need help from the movies around them.
50
A bad movie with a good heart.
50
It must have sounded great on paper.
42
The A.V. Club
Sheen is often the saving grace of Music Within, thanks to an aggressively profane wit that gives an otherwise tapioca-bland story a little edge.
