      Jeff M This is a really difficult movie to review. For the first three quarters, I was really engaged and drawn into the story and the wonderful performances by Theron and Davis. I don't know if I've ever seen the fatigue and weariness of motherhood portrayed so realistically. But then a plot twist occurs in the last quarter of the movie. Some may love where the story ends, but to me it felt like something out of an M. Night Shyamalan movie, and I felt a little betrayed as a viewer, particularly because I loved the first part so much. It all makes sense in the end, I suppose, but I wish the filmmakers had gone a different direction. It's too bad, because I thought that for the first hour of this movie I was watching a potential home run! That being said, Theron is fantastic throughout! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Alec B Theron is good, however the movie leans all the way in on a pretty flimsy twist that completely unravels whatever point it was trying to make about motherhood. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Gareth v Rietman and Cody team up well in this heartfelt dramedy. Theron keeps proving how versatile she has become in another fine performance. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Charlize Theron stars as Marlo She's a mom of three and married But how much can she take? Even she feels it's tiring to switch gears; she holds a baby all day and feels obligated to feel sexy for her husband Yet when she meets a night nanny to watch the kids named Tully a lot of the stress and anxiety from being a full time parent starts to get easier After all she's not used to being taken care of Marlo's spirit is in the dumps as it were being so drained from exhaustion Tully makes her realize how lucky she already is having a loving family Jason Reitman directs an honest, deeply empathetic ode to motherhood McKenzie Davis is brilliant as Tully as a free spirit next to Theron bonding in many ways, Davis brings so much energy Having a kid at a young age might seem horrifying and the film doesn't shy away from showing one side of it It's okay to let someone in so you can figure things out, you can fix the parts of someone without fixing the whole first, women say they're all better but they cover themselves in concealer to hide all the insecurities, boredom differs from security as it's empty and passive while security is more filling and reliant Being a parent isn't the easiest job to do but Reitman abd Charlize Theron truly show the modern struggles they have to trek through whether it's stress, mental illness, lack of happiness or feeling pressured to be perfect It's funny and very raw dissecting parenthood, both mom and dad have to dip their hands in Plus the twist I definitely didn't see coming it all comes together with everything physical, emotional, and psychological This definitely explores what women have to go through on a daily basis showing that they even need a break from raw, unforgiving light A dramadey that works so well it emulates real life of how difficult maternalism is plus us adults giving up our dreams trying to pass them off to the next generation Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/05/23 Full Review Lee C Great performances on a topic many of us can relate to (i.e., difficult parenting), especially by Charlize Theron. I'm giving it 3.5 stars rather than 4 only because it took a little too long for the plot to develop. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Mark A Depressing story that didn't go anywhere.

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader This stylistic maturity is typical of writers, who tend to improve. Rated: 3/4 Mar 24, 2020 Full Review Robert Daniels 812filmreviews Tully is one of the best comedies of the year, fluttering between dark family fair and a Mary Poppins self-help guide Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Adam Kempenaar Filmspotting Playing opposite ends of a spectrum -- one despairing and worn down, one so hopeful and youthful -- [Davis and Theron] could both have become caricatures of those people and never do. Aug 24, 2018 Full Review Devika Girish Vague Visages There’s a calculated precision to both Reitman’s direction and Cody’s screenplay. The film is perfectly paced and cut, and moves with a rat-a-tat rhythm; the writing is sharp and specific, with a zinger in every other line. Feb 6, 2024 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson This dramedy is chock full of literal and nonliteral humor with brilliant choices of phrasing and timing. Truths in this movie can be flipped like pancakes on a hot griddle and topped by a drizzle of syrup made with quite an infused kick. Rated: 4/5 Sep 4, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It begins as a natural and honest portrait of the struggle of mothers and women, but it loses its integrity with an obvious, writerly choice that reeks of artificiality. Rated: 2/4 Mar 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
