Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: As Auralie, Ms. McLean is appealing and fresh-faced and could do well in a better coming-of-age movie in a few years. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, Dec 17, 2017

Rotten: It's not without its charms; they just tend to be suffocated by bad wig jokes, distracting wardrobe choices and Craig Wedren's invasively cutesy score. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Dec 17, 2017

Fresh: Arquette is charmingly endearing as the frustrated Jeanne, Wilson movingly conveys his character's vulnerability as well as his bluster and McLean is terrific as the beleaguered young girl desperate to have a mane like Farrah Fawcett's. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Dec 19, 2017

Rotten: Permanent feels like a short film stretched to feature length. It never quite rises above the level of its premise. – Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com, Dec 15, 2017
