    Little Voice is that rarity, a filmed adaptation of a stage play that actually works.
  2. 88
    By offering opportunities to laugh, cry, and cheer, Little Voice satisfies in a big way.
  3. British actress Jane Horrocks plays Little Voice, and it is a transfixing, tour de force performance.
  4. The drawbacks to Little Voice might sink a lesser movie, but not this one.
  5. 75
    A slightly more light-hearted version of the "Shine" story. [4 December 1998, Friday, p.A]
  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 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
