Critic Reviews of "Love the Coopers"
New York Magazine/VultureNovember 17, 2015
It's just as often manipulative and contrived, but Jessie Nelson's film sells itself well. There's care in the details, and the characters often feel like actual people.
Time OutNovember 13, 2015
Ticks off literally every home-for-the-holidays box -- in dutiful, uninspired fashion.
Village VoiceNovember 13, 2015
If you've been wishing and hoping for a movie in which June Squibb - here playing a dementia-riddled relative named Aunt Fishy - shows her underpants yet again, you'll love Love the Coopers. For the rest of us, to know them is to hate them.

Holiday entertainment that feels more like a horror movie.
Hearst NewspapersNovember 13, 2015
It's part sitcom and part soap opera that pokes mild fun at the season but has a wide sentimental streak.
Tribune News ServiceNovember 13, 2015
Alas, Love the Coopers focuses too much on interfamily drama to salvage the real Christmas spirit.
SFistMarch 23, 2017
If you think this looks like an uplifting Christmas story about the love of family, think again. Sure, it wants to be, but instead it's a depressing mess.

There was something about Love the Coopers that didn't just leave me cold and disappointed... it also made me mad.

The ensemble give the scant material their all, and this may be Olivia Wilde's most impressive performance to date, but the contrived plot, forced sentimentality and painfully predictable climax overshadow their work.
South China Morning PostApril 06, 2016
Love the Coopers reminds us that there are few things worse than booze-fuelled family gatherings, but one of them is definitely schmaltzy Hollywood movies about such reunions.
Cairo360March 31, 2016
Charmless, confusing and utterly embarrassing, this could and should have been a lot more than just another run-of-the-mill Christmas flick which we're soon to forget.
AARP Movies for GrownupsMarch 26, 2016
Only occasionally does a moment ring true, thanks largely to talented actors subduing a balky script like parents wrestling a petulant kid onto Santa's lap.
