      Tiffany It was a really good movie! Parts were predictable, but the end made me emotional! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/30/22 Full Review Felicia I enjoyed the fact that the show represented a strong African American family. They had their struggles but they were a family. I enjoyed seeing the bond between friends and the real love between friends. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/29/22 Full Review Marty L Good story about about the struggle to rise above one’s roots. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/28/22 Full Review Ann s I love Angie Thomases stories. This was well made into a movie. I love seeing black representation on the screen for more than just thugs and drug dealers, etc. or maids and slaves. It has a really good message. The acting was superb.

      Tomris Laffly AV Club In her impressive directorial debut, actor-turned-filmmaker Sanaa Lathan delivers a poised and upbeat adaptation of The Hate U Give author's second book Rated: B- Oct 12, 2022 Full Review Dwight Brown DwightBrownInk.com Bravo to Lathan for making On the Come Up shine bright like a diamond. Rated: 3/4 Sep 28, 2022 Full Review Stephanie Zacharek TIME Magazine On the Come Up is a thoughtful and generous-spirited entertainment, and a reminder of how hard it can be, when you’re young, to figure out who you really are. Sep 24, 2022 Full Review Kevin Bourne SHIFTER On The Come Up entertains, challenges, inspires, educates, and enlightens. As they say in hip-hop, “Real recognize real” and when it comes to films we’ve seen in 2022, On The Come Up is as real as it gets. Jul 19, 2023 Full Review Joe Lipsett Hazel & Katniss & Harry & Starr Podcast As an adaptation, the film sands off the book's complicated and nuanced consideration of class and poverty. As a straightforward film about an artist, however, it succeeds, particularly the solid performances. That freeze frame ending, though...oof Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 7, 2022 Full Review Andrew Kendall Stabroek News On the Come Up is both slice-of-life-of-Black-America and teenaged-girl come-of-age story, carving out the contours of the space and the lives of this world with enough generosity that each moment feels rich and vibrant.
