    When The Bough Breaks resembles nothing more than a cheap fast-food burger served on fine china: Tasty, sure, and quite enjoyable in the moment. But once the credits roll and the primal centers of the brain stimulated by guilty pleasures like this one return to normal, all you’ll remember is that it looked prettier than usual.

  • Gary Goldstein

    Under the workmanlike direction of Jon Cassar (“Forsaken”), “Bough” breaks little new or inspired ground as it spins out its mildly effective, occasionally silly cautionary tale.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    The presence of a predominantly African-American cast arguably is the only distinguishing characteristic of this by-the-numbers thriller.

    Variety Full Review
  • Dan Callahan

    When the Bough Breaks is a very conservative film that ducks any issues that might be dramatically interesting in order to work up lame suspense sequences.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    From its New Orleans mansion and penthouse office suites, to its Mercedes and parties packed with haute couture glamour, it presents a vision of aspiration and achievement that Hollywood generally ignores.

  • Nick Allen

    While empathy is first to go in the tasteless When the Bough Breaks, there is nothing good in its place. Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    When the Bough Breaks could have offered some cheap thrills, but it ends up a neutered, paint-by-numbers snoozefest, not even worthy for cable syndication.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    A lazily written and generically directed Fatal Attraction knockoff.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    There’s not an ounce of suspense in any of this, because you’ve seen it all before, and the director, Jon Cassar, seems uninterested in veering from the well-established formula.
