San Francisco Chronicle

A gentle, pleasant film about people you genuinely like.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
Writer-director Georgia Lee never leaves any doubt that the bonds of ethnic family devotion are a charm against any woe more serious than an engagement to the wrong white guy.

A peppy if uneven charmer with a fetchingly wistful edge.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Sheri Linden
Well-told and charming, debuting writer-helmer Georgia Lee's comedy-drama Red Doors is big on heart but never sappy. Without overdoing the quirk factor or the melodrama, Lee shows a sure feel for family dynamics, and her light touch brings out the best in the ensemble's lovely, understated performances.

There's enough affection and insight here to make Lee's next movie worth watching for.

Think of Red Doors as a promise, and hope that Georgia Lee keeps it.

TV Guide

Packs five films' worth of drama, crises and revelations into one, and often lapses into sitcom triteness.

By Pete Vonder Haar
A film about a family billed as "bizarrely dysfunctional" – is a pleasant enough experience. However, it probably could have used a little more of the bizarre or dysfunctional to spice things up.

Premiere

By Scott Warren
Ma, who portrayed the stone-faced General in the Coen brothers' comedy "The Lady Killers," once again plays his role largely silent. As the despondent Ed, Ma says more with a few facial expressions & twitches than most performers could hope to with a three-page monologue.

New York Post

By V.A. Musetto
The script falls victim to the stereotypes and clichés so often found in movies about Asian-American families. Still, Lee shows talent, although it might take a feature or two before she finds her own voice.
