More Info:
  • Rex Reed

    It resonates with delicacy, passion and restraint, touching the heart in places where cynics fear to go.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Reitman keeps a strong grip on all the aspects of the story to prevent it from becoming corny, unduly melodramatic or obvious.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    It is a yarn. But it's so full of passion, poetry, and humor that it becomes, for the time, quite real.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Labor Day is an admittedly strange hybrid. Rarely have I seen such outrageous plot points executed with such lovely grace.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    There's a certain elegant simplicity to the movie's execution that maintains a spirit of familiarity but also keeps the material afloat.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    A tender, nostalgic and warm ‘family’ drama which also quietly seethes with the threat and tension of imminent danger. Labor Day shows a new side to Jason Reitman as a filmmaker, and we like it.

    Empire Full Review
  • William Goss

    Jason Reitman’s adaptation of Joyce Maynard’s Labor Day is as consistently assured a piece of filmmaking as any we’ve seen from the filmmaker and very much in keeping with the decreasingly glib nature of his output. Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    With Labor Day, director Jason Reitman turns a Nicholas Sparks scenario into an Alfred Hitchcock creep-show.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Winslet and Brolin have wonderful chemistry together, and Reitman makes well-worn metaphors like steamy weather and pie making (the film has been embraced by the American Pie Council) seem newly invented.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The film finds its footing as the weekend progresses and the temperature and tension — outside and in — rise.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    To the extent that Adele’s hunger for affection resonates with audiences, what emerges is a powerful — if implausible — romance.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    We see him (Brolin) whip up a first-class chili, but his specialty is peach pie, which we watch him prepare so lovingly that I was surprised Reitman didn’t include the recipe in the end credits.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    A melodrama that reaches the heart but hardly ever convinces the head.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Louis Black

    The film constantly plays against expectations. Reitman’s skilled direction of the superb cast allows the ridiculous to become poetic, the artificial to unfold naturally, the absurd to achieve a deep romantic resonance.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    A better film would have had the gumption to maintain the poetic bleakness, rather than steer toward what ultimately feels like safe compromise.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    What keeps this out of Nicholas Sparks bumper-paperback territory are terrific performances and Reitman’s control of the drama.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    You can love the look of the movie and still not believe a single word of it. To be fair, the climax is surprisingly touching; somehow, the residents of this cooked-up tale manage to earn our pity and support.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Catherine Shoard

    With its frank approach to the basics of human desire, its steady, intense focus on a small-town story which could have come straight from Douglas Sirk, Reitman's fifth feature appears to bear little resemblance the four that went before.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    If you can get past the ludicrous fantasy — well, wait, that’s the problem. You can’t get past the ludicrous fantasy.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    A sluggish romantic drama

    Slate Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    "Labor" isn't just a word in the title of Jason Reitman's new film, it's a description of what it feels like to sit through the movie.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    I can’t pardon Labor Day’s mush, not just because it’s mush, but because it comes with an unappetizing side order of condescension and contempt.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The pie looks delicious, but Labor Day feels stale.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    It’s difficult to believe a word of Labor Day, but then again you don’t have to in order to luxuriate in Winslet and Brolin’s bubbling, steaming chemistry.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    It's all bathetic enough for Labor Day to be subtitled The Prisons of Madison County.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    This is win-win for everybody, but it's too win-win - a setup that short-circuits drama, that shoehorns a situation into a precooked formulation: He's a real prisoner and she's an emotional prisoner, and each offers the other the possibility of freedom.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    While it's nice to see Reitman try to branch out from the hip, acerbic humor of "Juno" and "Young Adult," his clumsiness with this more earnest material is an unpleasant surprise.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Kate Winslet has such sound and reliable dramatic instincts (That Face doesn't hurt, either) she very nearly makes something of Adele.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Even with the talent involved, almost everything about Labor Day plays less like something you’d buy a ticket to watch and more like something you’d buy in an airport bookstore to read.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    For all its filmmaking care and care-worn performances, is nothing more than a beach book, inconsequential and utterly out of place in January.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    With his latest film, the mawkish and melodramatic Labor Day, Reitman has done an unexpected about-face: He's ditched Wilder for Douglas Sirk. And the swap doesn't do him — or his fans — any favors.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Chris Willman

    A full-immersion exercise in the old-fashioned women's weepie that skews far closer to Nicholas Sparks' brand of contrivance than Diablo Cody territory.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Improbably, this saccharine melodrama comes courtesy of Jason Reitman, the Hollywood scion director who made "Juno" and "Up In The Air." Clearly, he’s chasing a change of pace, a hard right turn away from the sardonic redemption stories that have previously sported his byline and into the unfamiliar realm of Sirksian soap.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    Labor Day may be filled with autumn's falling leaves, but it makes sense that they're bringing it out as a prelude to spring, for the sap — and I do mean sap — is rising.

    NPR Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Reitman has placed a not-unreasonable bet that sensual creatures like Winslet and Brolin can convey the passion necessary for their relationship to make sense, but the film carries itself too stiffly, like it’s so afraid of making the wrong choices that it doesn’t make any good ones.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The film will do until "Fifty Shades of Grey" turns up. The more you think about Labor Day, the more calculating it gets.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Though pristinely faithful to Maynard's book, it blurs inexorably into Nicholas Sparks.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Actors of the caliber of Brolin and Winslet can do nothing but the best with what they're given, struggling to find nuance and humanity in romance-novel archetypes. Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Labor Day feels like a belabored, sappy slog.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The movie’s a somber affair, but if you see it in the right frame of mind, it’s the guilty-pleasure hoot of the season.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    The movie’s principal saving grace is Ms. Winslet’s convincing portrayal of Adele, a despairing woman of low self-esteem just a twitch away from a nervous breakdown. In almost every other respect, this overbaked romantic hokum is preposterous.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Labor Day, adapted from a novel by Joyce Maynard, is the kind of movie that turns clarity into stultification; everything is perfectly clear and almost everything — pie-making excepted — is perfectly lifeless.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Labor Day is so self-conscious and phony, it must be the work of a pod person. Humans, film lovers, and fans of Reitman's till-now-flawless filmography: We've gotta fight back.
