      Critics Consensus

      The Book of Clarence makes light work of some heavy subject matter, with undeniably entertaining -- albeit uneven -- results.

      Audience Consensus

      The Book of Clarence puts a solidly funny spin on Biblical themes, but don't be surprised if it also makes you cry before it's done -- and think long after you leave the theater.

      Danny Leigh Financial Times A raucous stoner comedy dressed as an earnest Bible story, or actually the other way around. Rated: 3/5 Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Helen O'Hara Empire Magazine With a cast this talented there will always be decent moments, but they never cohere. Credit for its casting and design, but it’s not the movie messiah, just a very disappointing mess. Rated: 2/5 Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Tim Robey Daily Telegraph (UK) Stanfield’s dropout charisma can cushion a role fine, but can’t make this one very interesting. Rated: 2/5 Apr 20, 2024 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall Even if it's deliberately offbeat and anachronistic, this is a remarkably original sword-and-sandals biblical epic, anchored in a riveting performance by LaKeith Stanfield. Rated: 4/5 Apr 23, 2024 Full Review Andy Lea The Sun (UK) The jokes are pretty lame but the unhinged first half is endearingly unpredictable. Rated: 2/5 Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Paul Whitington Irish Independent In the end [The Book of Clarence can’t decide if it’s making fun of the New Testament or singing its praises. It has its moments though, and is led from the front by LaKeith Stanfield, a fine actor too seldom in the spotlight. Apr 19, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
