  1. This terrific movie manages to invest kitchen-sink realism with the soul of a fairy tale.
  2. 88
    By offering opportunities to laugh, cry, and cheer, Little Voice satisfies in a big way.
  3. Horrocks's phenomenal mimicry of musical grande dames...makes a splendid centerpiece for the otherwise more ordinary film built around it.
  4. 75
    Little Voice is unthinkable without the special and unexpected talent of its star.
  5. 75
    Engagingly offbeat. [4 December 1998, Life, p.13E]
  6. Ultimately, Little Voice comes to us from an indeterminate place that is no longer the theatre but not quite the movies. Let's call it music videoland -- best just to sit back and enjoy golden-oldie tunes belted out by a quicksilver mimic.
  7. 20
    As mean-spirited toward its working-class characters, especially its women, as it is profoundly unfunny.

    Michael Caine in a comedic role is irresistible (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and Jane Horrocks I knew only as Bubble from Absolutely FabulousMichael Caine in a comedic role is irresistible (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and Jane Horrocks I knew only as Bubble from Absolutely Fabulous (not my favorite character from that Series but definitely a stand out show). I had no expectations for this film but ended up enjoying it immensely. If nothing else it was a nice reprieve from all the standard American fare that year. Expand
