Reviews about Welcome to Me

ReelViews

There's not much plot here and very little in the way of character development. Alice is defined by her disorder and the screenplay isn't interested in delving into her life and relationships.

No shortage of talent here. Pity they're all underused.

Welcome to Me is an unsettling comedy, and I mean that in the best possible way.

Newsday

"Welcome to Me" has its charming, funny and sensitive moments, but it also suffers from its own form of instability.

Chicago Sun-Times

It's a tricky business playing someone who is mentally ill and perhaps should be confined for observation, especially in a dark comedy. Wiig manages to make Alice funny as hell, endearing, sad and sometimes a little frightening.

There's dark comedy, and then there's take-no-prisoners, dare-you-to-keep-looking dark comedy. Kristen Wiig's "Welcome to Me" falls decidedly in the latter category, making us laugh but feel deeply unsettled about doing so.

Total Film
Paul M. Bradshaw

Veering suddenly and wildly between sharp comedy and sharper tragedy, Shira Piven's bold indie rests almost entirely on Wiig, who offers up a fearless performance.

Wiig delivers a standout performance that manages to make Alice at once interesting, humorous, irritating and infuriating, but always successfully stops just short of making her an object of ridicule.

Movie Talk

Movie Talk

A funny and touching Kristen Wiig walks an acting tightrope in this dark comedy.

Irish Times
Tara Brady
Irish Times

Wiig's depiction of a woman whose stories are apt to end with the declaration "then I went off my meds" is as disquieting as it is scarily accurate.

Daily Express (UK)

Ultimately, you are tempted to conclude that the film is a bit like Alice's chat show: a vanity project.

London Evening Standard

Whatever the state of your mental health, you'll want to follow Alice down the rabbit hole.
