Critic Reviews

  1. The movie finds charming humor in a world full of sectarian strife between Protestant and Catholic.
  2. This late-in-the-year gem glows with Levinson's characteristically warm embrace of a wide range of people and his superlative sense of time and place.
  3. New York Post

    A laugh-filled comedy that might be described as "The Full Monty" meets the Three Stooges.
  4. This is a funny novelty, no denying it.
  5. The director serves up a nice helping of blarney, but he seems to have left his schmaltz in Baltimore.
  6. USA Today

    This wee trinket of a comedy, one of the more offbeat stabs at capturing the absurdity of the religious and political strife in Ireland, is for those who like their Guinness with a shot of wry.
  7. Boston Globe
    Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    A slight but diverting series of set pieces.
  8. Chicago Tribune
    Reviewed by: Michael Wilmington
    The movie isn't quite spry, warm or hip enough to carry out its very ambitious serio-comic agenda. Even for an ace like Levinson, Belfast is a long way from Baltimore.
  9. Coming from a big shot like Levinson, An Everlasting Piece feels like a gently amusing but undeniably minor diversion that, for whatever reason, needed to be gotten out of his system.

    The humor is slight, but the actors make the blarney go down easy.

    While An Everlasting Piece is rife with engaging family moments and an undeniable charm, it never allows its characters to find the very thing they're seeking: peace.
  12. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy
    It's a film of myriad minor pleasures but scant compelling qualities.
  13. It's a sprightly, low-fiber comedy while the comedy lasts.
  14. Reviewed by: Robert Horton
    This mild but amusing comedy wasn't written by Levinson, and the accents may be different, but the feel is similar.
  15. 30
    Writer Barry McEvoy and director Barry Levinson might want to brush up on the use of metaphor.
