J. R. Jones Chicago Reader This gentle, positive treatment of Rogers coincides with the show's values but devalues his enormous social importance. Mar 24, 2020 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian This documentary by Morgan Neville reveals that he really was just what he seemed to be at first innocent sight: a kind-hearted, square but saintly man who genuinely loved and understood children in a pure, sincere way. Rated: 4/5 Nov 10, 2018 Full Review Hannah Strong Little White Lies Not beyond reproach, but a fitting tribute to a pop culture icon. Rated: 4/5 Nov 7, 2018 Full Review Ryan McQuade InSession Film Morgan Neville is the new king of documentaries, and I’m fascinated in what subject he will tackle next. Apr 4, 2024 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson Without question and to use his word of "special," special care was paid to a special subject for a must-see and purifying viewing experience.

John H Amazing documentary about Fred Rogers. I was on of Mr Rogers kids so it means so much Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Alec B I like how seriously the movie takes Rogers' philosophy, examining not just its effectiveness but how it proved to be a reflection of deeply complex man. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Pifase Don't think it was as good as the source material and it felt like a Horror movie at times. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/05/23 Full Review Jay W This movie is so perfectly put together and shows how much more there was to Fred Rodgers than people saw. By the end of the film I was in tears which doesn't happen often for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/26/23 Full Review Just confirmation that Fred Rogers was a lovely, caring, compassionate man! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review Thomas M The best documentary movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/27/22 Full Review Read all reviews
