Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle" has its flaws, but it also has a heartfelt grasp of what set Dorothy Parker apart from her fellow revelers and makes her so emblematic a figure even today. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Oct 26, 2011

Fresh: A highly absorbing but naggingly patchy look at the acerbic writer Dorothy Parker and her cohorts at the legendary Algonquin Round Table. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Oct 26, 2011

Fresh: What a wonderful, detailed portrait. And what an evocation of a time and a mood. "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle'' is truly one of those films that inhabits its own world. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 26, 2011
