We don't learn anything really new about Palin's politics or her personality, save for a few details that don't shed much light on her thinking (or lack thereof).
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic  full review
 
[Makes] her sound simply like an evil Tupperware lady.
Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News  full review
 
Like his subject, Broomfield prefers flash to facts.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
 
Palin texted and chewed gum during meetings -- so what?
Kyle Smith, New York Post  full review
 
Probably the scariest movie you will see all year.
Leba Hertz, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
It feels warmed over, devoid of urgency and, in spite of Mr. Broomfield's on-camera displays of doggedness, lacking in curiosity.
A.O. Scott, New York Times  full review
 
The barbs feel stale at best, squandered at worst, and the ominous music that accompanies each sounds as if it has been lifted from the silent movie era.
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Broomfield is so dogged that he makes 
 a case, in a deeper way than we've seen, that there's a 
 terrifying remorselessness to Palin's feuding nature.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
It's juicy stuff but not very informative.
Christy Lemire, Associated Press  full review
 
There may be worse things in life than sitting through a 90-minute movie about Sarah Palin. At the moment, I just can't think of any.
Rex Reed, New York Observer  full review
 
For all the legitimate reasons to jeer Palin, should her rightful wariness of Broomfield's camera be one of them?
Karina Longworth, Village Voice  full review
 
Sarah Palin -- You Betcha! shovels enough dirt on the Tea Party guru and self-described hockey mom to satisfy her haters, but lacks sufficient humor and insight to make it a must-see for anyone outside the Brit muckraker's fan base.
Rob Nelson, Variety  full review
 
Fleshing out now-familiar tales of misconduct and bad judgment, Palin investigation is entertaining but holds no dramatic discoveries.
John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter  full review
