      Nell Minow Movie Mom Better with the in-between moments...When the chaacters are just interacting quietly they convey a great deal and the events interrupt the delicacy of those scenes. Rated: B Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Katie Walsh TheWrap These lessons are all fine and good, but it takes well over an hour into the 110-minute run time for “Sam & Kate” to reveal any conflict worth paying attention to. Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Devika Girish New York Times Sam and Kate are such broad archetypes that it’s hard to feel the depth of their scars or the spark of their chemistry. Nov 10, 2022 Full Review John Serba Decider Sam and Kate is a deeply unassuming dramedy that offers no great revelations about the human condition, but doesn’t intend to. It’s lightly poignant fodder made for adult viewers weary of spectacle Aug 11, 2023 Full Review Jayne Nelson Radio Times As you'd expect from generations of Hollywood royalty, it's beautifully acted throughout. Rated: 3/5 Apr 18, 2023 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Dull conversations and lackluster scenes prevent Sam & Kate from being the great romantic dramedy that it wants to be. The acting is admirable though, and the film's best moments make up for any flaws. The movie is better at depicting grief than romance. Dec 7, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Kayron Good clean movie.. Great story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/10/22 Full Review carol K Sort of a slow moving movie in parts. Love Dustin Hoffman! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/16/22 Full Review Joel C It was a good story with very good actors. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/15/22 Full Review ALICE S It was good but not what I expected at all. I came for a comedy and to me it was dry. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/15/22 Full Review Ruth Ann W It is a cute movie but not as light hearted as I thought it would be. There is mention of more serious issues but also humor and a lesson on accepting someone for who they are and where they are at a particular time of life. Very good. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/12/22 Full Review Reeldeal Gal Slow steady character development and story that evoked several emotions in me. Appreciate and live in every precious moment, not the past. Take chances with your heart and soul, because we all have a shelf life and unknown expiration date on this earth. It resonated with me.
