The critical consensus

Brigsby Bear is as lovable as the title character himself.

****(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 04/12/2017

A film about a cult that might well attract a cult following itself. But it’s only moderately successful, with the early scenes hinting at a bolder, more satisfying tale that could have been.

***(*)(*)Nick De Semlyen, Empire Online, 06/12/2017

As the film unwinds to a sentimental anticlimax, its potential is unfulfilled.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/12/2017

A sweet, albeit overly quirky, film.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 07/12/2017

The comedic mileage from its faux show goes a long way.

Josh Slater-Williams, Little White Lies, 07/12/2017

There is something refreshing about the carefree way the filmmakers here ignore genre rules and develop their story in such eccentric and offbeat fashion. What is not clear, though, is at whom the movie is aimed.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 07/12/2017

A fey, low-key charmer where you have to take an awful lot at face value.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 08/12/2017

This story of an oddball being let out into the world succeeds in its character portrayal even as it stumbles over reality.
