As British comedy sometimes will, "A Long Way Down" has an occasional attack of the cutes, but the actors' commitment keeps the movie on the plus side.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2014-07-17

 

Author Nick Hornby establishes a tone of sentimental black humor, and director Pascal Chaumeil orchestrates the encounter as the formation of rag-tag band where each player gets a stirring solo number.

Serena Donadoni, Village Voice, 2014-07-11

 

Whatever the intent of the filmmakers, a story that hinges on existential despair requires at least a modicum of emotional credulity.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-07-25

 

Tackles the topic of life-ending despair with all the delicacy and grace of a Hallmark greeting card.

Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic, 2014-07-17

 

There's not much meat here - just a slightly smart setup without any followthrough.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2014-07-10

 

[An] inane, preposterous and stupefying film ...

Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2014-07-10

 

Awkward and atonal.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2014-07-10

 

It presents four people who no longer care to exist, then fails to make a strong case for why their continued existence is necessary or desirable.

Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2014-07-10

 

Everything that transpires onscreen feels wholly inauthentic and calculated for maximum treacle.

Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York, 2014-07-10

 

Does everything but bring in Bozo the Clown to make suicide no more serious than what to wear to the junior prom.

Rex Reed, New York Observer, 2014-07-10

 

"A Long Way Down" may prove uniquely inspirational: It's bound to make audience members want to kill themselves.

Kyle Smith, New York Post, 2014-07-09

 

A horrible misfire of a movie which starts off badly and just keeps getting worse.

Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-07-07

 

It's hard to care about these characters. And the film lacks that slip-into-a-Slanket cosy feel you want from Hornby.

Cath Clarke, Time Out, 2014-03-18

 

Four characters meet while planning to commit suicide and decide to annoy one another instead in this tacky Nick Hornby adaptation.

Peter Debruge, Variety, 2014-02-11
