Critic Reviews of "Mississippi Grind"New YorkerOctober 08, 2015
The actors flaunt craft, the script lays on the folksiness with a trowel, and scenes of local color seem to come straight from a guidebook.Tribune News ServiceOctober 07, 2015
It's as if the Scarecrow and the Tin Man got lost and wandered down the Mississippi River, drinking and gambling and stumbling into and out of various troubles, not worrying about their brains or their hearts, just wishing for a little bit of luck.Philadelphia InquirerOctober 02, 2015
The movie is a snapshot collage of flyover America, but also, perhaps, an homage to the soon-to-be-lost world of brick-and-mortar gambling.Chicago ReaderOctober 01, 2015
Even as a road movie this is pretty bland.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 01, 2015
This is one of the better movies about the gambling culture in recent years.Arizona RepublicOctober 01, 2015
Mendelsohn manages to make us simultaneously feel sorry for him and hope, against what seem like steep odds, that he somehow succeeds.Cinemanía (Spain)May 09, 2016
Ben Mendelsohn is amazing as the sick gambler, always willing to sink lower, and also Ryan Reynolds is magnificent and outstanding. [Full review in Spanish]FlavorwireMay 03, 2016
A loose, funky character study of two guys who can only frame their station as "can't win" and "can't lose," and can't really imagine a life that's anywhere in between.Seanax.comMarch 24, 2016
... a meandering road movie through the byways of American characters who populate the card rooms and dice tables and racetracks, and an oddball buddy movie built on a chance encounter and an instant kinship between two losers gambling their lives away.Movie TalkMarch 13, 2016
Mendelsohn and Reynolds keep us enthralled, waiting to see what the next turn of the cards will reveal.Independent Online (South Africa)March 02, 2016
Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn floating down the Mississippi River to gamble and have fun. Should be entertaining, right? Well, it's more a grind than any kind of entertainment.The Film StageFebruary 25, 2016
Mississippi Grind provides a venerable acting showcase to a pair of under-appreciated actors, but could have used more impetus in its execution.
