Overall, "Moonlight" is a nuttily engaging tale of betrayal and, perhaps, redemption.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

By Joe Williams
It's a pleasure to watch Ryan resurrect her trademark persona, a mix of perkiness and pique, as she flounces around the room. But it's shaded with a middle-age desperation that's half real and half chick-flick shtick.

Portland Oregonian

By M. E. Russell
I appreciate that talented people wanted to honor Shelly by making this film. They likely would have better honored her by mounting her script as a play.

More strident than funny, the film illustrates that old French proverb, "Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside desperate to get out."

There's a lot of yelling, cracking wise, and cooing in this creepy rom-com.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Serious Moonlight is a tonal disaster, distasteful and sentimental by turns. It was probably a mistake to have Hines try to walk that same delicate line that took Shelly her entire career to master.

A shrill farce that strains credibility even by the standards of black comedy.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
It's also suffocatingly stagy, especially when the husband's new love (Kristen Bell) and a violent thief (Justin Long) show up.
