Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Except for Ms. Janney's monstrous mother and an Alzheimer's-afflicted grandmother (Polly Bergen), "Struck by Lightning" gives its characters no dimension.
Rotten: In his screenwriting debut, Glee's gifted Chris Colfer, 22, proves he can lace a line with sass and soul.
Rotten: A mediocre coming-of-age indie.
Rotten: If only "Struck by Lightning" had a sharper, stronger perspective, it might have made more of its conceit.
Even more than I hoped!
I'm a huge fan of Chris Colfer, and I've been waiting for this movie since I knew he was filming it in 2011. Now that I've finally gotten a chance to see it, I was worried that the movie would be terrible, which would be a bummer, because I really do love everything Chris does, but I didn't want my love of his work to make me biased and cloud my judgement of the film. I was also worried that all the rave reviews I've heard from online would be clouded by their dedication to Chris.
Boy, was I wrong! From the moment the movie started, I was completely enthralled. The writing was excellent. The cast was excellent. The directing was excellent. I finished the movie in tears, and as soon as it was done, I wanted to start it all over again.
Chris Colfer has a very bright future ahead of him if he keeps delivering screenplays like this one.
Amazing. Enough said.

Awesome movie. It was funny, sad, and amazing. The acting was great Chris Colfer really branched out from glee.
