New York Post

By Farran Smith Nehme
Halle Berry’s latest vehicle is old-fashioned as a leisure suit, but better-looking and a lot more fun.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
This movie, with its flashbacks to past sins and traumas, rests squarely on Berry, a mesmerizer who makes every moment count.

Village Voice

By Sherilyn Connelly
It's occasionally imaginative, and, most importantly, never boring.

It's just a matter of time, flashbacks, many costume and accent changes, some more jazz, and a triggering tune on the radio before the...

Christian Science Monitor

By Peter Rainer
It’s not just Frankie who is putting on a show here. Berry is also overemphatically showing off her chops.

The New York Times

By Neil Genzlinger
Ms. Berry does a decent job with the role, and the film treats its subject matter respectfully, but the overall package doesn’t rise above...

Philadelphia Inquirer

By David Hiltbrand
Although it is based on a true story, the dramatization doesn't make much sense psychologically.

Los Angeles Times

By Robert Abele
Berry's florid physicality has a certain silent-melodrama pull. The film around her, however, is lamentably by-the-numbers.

Great Acting...Horrible Storyline

By allena224
Go see it, if only to see Halle's phenomenal effort. Don't go, if you're looking for a complete package. You'll be disappointed. Halle was incredible. However, the studio did her a major disservice...

Not Best Picture!

By Kafe
I'm sure Halle Berry saw this as a chance to show her acting ability, because of the diverse personalities her character possessed. However, the storyline was somewhat drawn out and boring. I guess...

The film itself was interesting, but there should have been a more intriguing plot/introduction that lead the audience up to what was actually going on. There were no preconceptions to inform the...

Best Actress

By Hdiggs2006
"Frankie & Alice" is definitely a must see movie. Although it could have been better, Halle Berry's acting made up for any flaws in writing or directing. Mrs Berry gave the performance of a...

Well acted

I thought Ms. Berry played the part very well, it was one occasion that a person of color received the mental help they so desperately needed. The doctor actually cared enough to go the extra step...

Frankie & Alice

The film was good, although I think it could have been a little bit more detail with the mother and what happen to the child. Halle Berry acting was good as expected. Now if she won an Oscar for...
