  1. 80
    Agnes Browne hums along as a series of pleasant vignettes, only frantically shifting to a single narrative track in its third act for the sake of an unbelievably upbeat ending.
  2. Even though the soap employed is Irish Spring, this is still a soap opera.
  3. 63
    This is a modest but likable film, and Anjelica Huston plays a heroine who makes us smile.
  4. Reviewed by: Richard Schickel

    There are a reserve and a realism in Huston's work that make her very modest film more affecting than you might expect.
  5. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    60
    It is -- in mood, execution, and shameless sentimentality -- a Bette Midler movie with an Irish accent.
  6. The material is familiar and the ending is corny, but Huston's acting and directing keep the comedy-drama likable if not very imaginative.
  7. Soft-boiled blarney so sluttish with Hollywood clichés it could've been made in Burbank.
