What Was the Critical Response for Sorry to Bother You?
Rotten Tomatoes had given the film rating of 93% which is based on 311 reviews with an average rating of 7.7 out of 10. The website wrote that –
“Fearlessly ambitious, scathingly funny, and thoroughly original, Sorry to Bother You loudly heralds the arrival of a fresh filmmaking talent in writer-director Boots Riley.”
David Slims of Atlantic wrote for the movie that –
“The story’s heightened reality works best when it’s barely distinguishable from our own—though it starts to lose steam the more it drifts into fantasy. The movie is at times a mess, but a compelling one, and this debut from Boots Riley should herald a fascinating filmmaking career.”
Variety magazine wrote for the movie that –
“As the movie’s allegorical relation to real-world problems blurs, audiences are left to wonder what Riley’s point is supposed to be.”
At the Sundance Film Festival, A.A Dowd of The A.V Club reviewed the movie and dissented from his peers calling it –
“a scattershot, intermittently pointed satire whose jokes and insights land with about the same (in)frequency.” Dowd was critical of the writing and direction: “There’s a messy, first-draft quality to how the film fits said ideas together, and a general sloppiness to the execution, with Riley botching the timing on too many jokes … Sorry To Bother You is plainly a first feature, and that’s no insult: Even as some of the film’s comedy fell flat for me, I distantly admired its something-to-prove chutzpah.”
