More Info:
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    This is a tragicomic fable about an all-too-real social predicament rather a wish-fulfillment fantasy, and the tragic result may be that hardly anyone notices how good it is, or the sickest, weirdest, most triumphant performance of Wiig’s career. Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Wiig manages to make Alice funny as hell, endearing, sad and sometimes a little frightening. There’s not an ounce of condescension or preciousness in the performance.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Christopher Grey

    The film rejects a fawning (or even particularly detailed) account of mental illness in favor of a plunge into the deep end of a bottomless ego.

  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Yes, it has a bit of the watching-races-for-the-wrecks feel to it, and by the end of the film, it's not clear Piven has a destination in mind, or whether it's important to arrive at one. But this is a performance that demands your attention. It also deserves it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    It’s obvious that Welcome to Me is about an unusual person, but Shira Piven’s dark comedy makes it perfectly clear that the “me” of the title is no mere eccentric. On the contrary, this tragicomic oddity is that rarest of birds: a genuinely funny movie about mental illness.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    By turns touching, amusing and genuinely disturbing, it defies expectations and easy categorization, forgoing obvious laughs and cheap emotional payoffs in favor of something much odder and more interesting.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • John DeFore

    Funny, dark, and riding a very fine line in its depiction of mental illness, it may be the best thing we could hope would emerge from the side of Wiig that gave us Gilly.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    A strange and often startlingly inspired media/mental-illness comedy.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    At turns horribly funny and simply horrific, Piven's film suggests our therapeutic age has reduced us all to psychic cripples who resort to emotional exhibitionism in lieu of honest self-examination and self-expression.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    As she demonstrated in “The Skeleton Twins,” the former “Saturday Night Live” comedian has grown so adept at rendering troubled characters without offering sideline commentary that you can’t help but fall in love with her, even as laughter gives way to uncomfortable silence.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The movie is small, but the actors make it seem larger, like binoculars turned around the right way.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    This showcase for Wiig is sufficiently absurd to make real-world parallels laughable.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    A humorous if occasionally horrific pitch-black satire. Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Shira Piven, working from a script by Elliot Laurence, has directed a beautiful, sad, sweet and funny movie that deals honestly with mental illness while also earning big laughs and offering up some hard truths. And it helps that Kristen Wiig gives the best sustained performance of her entire career in the lead.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Nikola Grozdanovic

    None of this would be as funny if it was done by anyone other than Wiig, who has never been funnier. Her crass, narcissistic, capricious Alice is her greatest creation.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Welcome to Me might as well have been called The Kristen Wiig Show, for better or for worse. It makes a splendid showcase for the brilliant actress’s brand of mousy absurdism, and for her ability to modulate tone. The film dances between hilarity and disquiet, between goofiness and pathos. But I’m not even sure it can be called a movie; it feels like a setup and a character in search of a story.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Though some of the jabs "Me" takes at reality TV are clever, the film, like Alice, tends to fracture at key moments. What makes it worth watching is Wiig.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Welcome To Me never develops much momentum, doesn’t always know what to do with supporting players like Leigh, and builds toward a finale that plays as a bit too neat. Yet even this doesn’t betray the character’s cracked integrity.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    This spiky, pushy, sometimes upsetting comedy finds Wiig creating something whole and alive out of her apparent contradictions.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Kristen Wiig is scary. That’s a good thing. It’s part of her appeal as a comedian, and crucial in the funny-weird comedy-drama Welcome to Me, which uses the working-without-a-net aspect of Wiig’s humor to unsettling effect.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    The bold, arresting movie doesn’t really work, but is nonetheless almost impossible to stop watching.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    While Kristen Wiig fully commits to her bizarre, mentally ill character in Welcome to Me, the result still feels more like an extended sketch than a movie.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Welcome to Me isn’t laughing with Alice, but at her, in what seems like a harsh reaction to mental illness.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The best thing that can be said about Welcome to Me, as written by Eliot Laurence and directed by Shira Piven, is that it attempts to portray the real Borderline Personality Disorder as opposed to the Hollywood movie version of the disease. Unfortunately, that's about all it does.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s just not that funny, not that sad and not on target, satirically. This “Welcome” isn’t nearly welcoming enough.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    There’s a sketch, or a short film, or even an Adult Swim series to be mined from these characters and situations, but as a feature film, Welcome to Me comes off like taunting followed by hugs, where neither feels genuine.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It all adds up to a film that is at times interesting, and at times funny in spite of itself. But more than all that, it exudes a sense of heart-rending, chest-penetrating sadness.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    The movie is nothing more than a labored series of skits that play like ideas from rejected TV pilots.
