Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) This movie manages to do correctly what a film like Don't Look Up did so badly, which is to have a political point of view and believe in it while knowing that not everyone on your side of the camp is great while not everyone on the other side is evil. Mar 30, 2022 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom The best thing about the movie is its refusal to make any character one-dimensional or completely unsympathetic, especially when we find our own expectations challenged. Rated: B- Mar 17, 2022 Full Review Benjamin Franz Film Threat Generally, I found The Hater charming and lovable. Rated: 8/10 May 17, 2022 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix Once you get past all the obnoxious ranting by the movie's main character, The Hater is a comedy-drama that has as much to say about political and cultural wars in America as it does about family, female empowerment, and the grieving process. Mar 25, 2022 Full Review Monique Jones Common Sense Media This dramedy has a worthy message about politics, but it presents it in an a slightly messy way. Rated: 3/5 Mar 21, 2022 Full Review Christian Toto HollywoodInToto.com Political comedy proves short on laughs but offers empathy for Red State USA. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 19, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Jordan H Had me on the edge of my seat Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/13/24 Full Review Audience Member Excellent, funny, insightful, both satirical and kind, ironical and direct. Treats all characters with respect and eschews simplistic answers, all while making you laugh. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/16/22 Full Review diana 4 Great movie! Surprising and satisfying! Joey Ally is a talent I won't be taking my eyes off of. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Ben E Here we have a wonderful idea for a film with numerous strong scenes, well put together, with the strengths of sympathy and nuance. Unfortunately, for me, it all led to a muddled and dispassionate anticlimactic conclusion unworthy of the film leading to it. Note also that the film is a drama, not a comedy. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/26/22 Full Review ezra h Im not sure why people dislike this? maybe because of their political belief ? Over all this obviously a low budget and independent film. I was afraid its gunna be so bad I cant watch it. But the acting of everyone (especially Joey Ally) was exceptionally good. This piece is very inspiring. Not in a big kind of inspiration but rather a small one that give your heart some fluster and want to change the world for a better place. This is the journey of a woman who want to change things for good and obstacles she faced throughout her the journey. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is a gem. Takes on politics in such a unique way - everything grounded in fact, performances grounded, but it goes bananas. Will watch again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
