Critic Reviews of "The Groomsmen"Mick LaSalle San Francisco ChronicleAugust 25, 2006
This is the movie I believe Burns has been trying to make since The Brothers McMullen, 11 years ago.Philip Wuntch Dallas Morning NewsAugust 25, 2006
Traffics in such familiar territory as sibling rivalries, generational estrangements and broken dreams. But it slowly, sometimes too slowly, connects with the viewer.Ty Burr Boston GlobeAugust 10, 2006
The Groomsmen may be low-cal Cassavetes or Secrets and Lies for mooks, but Burns knows his turf. The marvel is that after seven films he's still finding fresh grass.Owen Gleiberman Entertainment WeeklyJuly 26, 2006
In a film of minor ambition, [the characters are] all worthy company.Stephen Whitty Newark Star-LedgerJuly 14, 2006
The problem is that Burns -- who insists on writing all his own material -- isn't a very good writer.Kyle Smith New York PostJuly 14, 2006
Instead of whimsy there's nastiness, and instead of promising newcomers there's a cluster of formerly hot actors gone cold.Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.comApril 22, 2009
Writer/director Ed Burns adds a droopy fourth chapter to his Irish-American working class films...Doris Toumarkine Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
Secure in its indie identity and wholly entertaining, The Groomsmen deserves hordes of filmgoers seeking quality alternatives to the bigger summer pictures.Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) St. Paul Pioneer PressSeptember 21, 2006
A standard big-weekend-where- friends-gather-and- everyone-has- a-secret movie.Frank Swietek One Guy's OpinionAugust 23, 2006
It appears that as a filmmaker Burns is having as much difficulty maturing as his characters do.Mark Bell Film ThreatAugust 19, 2006
Its realistic portrayal of an almost extinct small-town dynamic between friends and family is not to be missed.Harvey S. Karten CompuserveAugust 07, 2006
Ed Burns repeats himself in his familiar territory about people who are young and stupid.
