Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
There are moments in All or Nothing of such acute observation that we nod in understanding -- The closing scenes of the movie are just about perfect.

No picnic to watch -- Leigh's camera is unsentimental and unsparing.

The acting in All or Nothing is superb. Everyone creates a character we can immediately register and recognize as true.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Leigh isn't breaking new ground, but he knows how a daily grind can kill love. Strong stuff.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Edward Guthmann
Leigh doesn't sentimentalize these tragic, dead-end lives but allows his characters to be ugly and stupid, to make horrendous mistakes. Sometimes they're laughable, and yet there's never the sense that Leigh is mocking them.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
In that rare moment, the movie relaxes its rictus of pain and actually dares to feel good. Moments like these aren't just a negotiation between all and nothing -- they're everything that allows us to care about even those characters who only slouch and shriek ''F -- - orfff!''

A mostly glum, gray and grim story lit by a fugitive sunbeam.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Grueling, heavy-handed, and surprisingly insight-free. For once, a gaggle of Leigh characters hasn't jelled beyond the level of its cast's conceits.
