Critic Reviews of "Anything"Entertainment WeeklyMay 22, 2018
It's Lynch who carries the movie, delivering a quiet, contemplative performance as a man trying to rebuild his life after losing everything.Detroit NewsMay 18, 2018
An implausible romantic drama with good intentions that can't overcome its silly contrivances.San Francisco ChronicleMay 17, 2018
McNeil plays it way too safe. Trying to have it both ways, he satisfies no one.New York ObserverMay 11, 2018
It's sensitively written, humorously human, warmly acted, and admirably resistant to most of the obvious drag-queen cliches.indieWireMay 11, 2018
Anything is one more casualty in Hollywood's long history of ransacking transgender stories, which it does under the guise of paying homage without paying coins to those it claims to representNew York PostMay 10, 2018
Writer-director Timothy McNeil...crafts a fairly moving tribute to the notion, as Lin-Manuel Miranda once put it, that "love is love is love."NewcityMay 18, 2018
John Carroll Lynch: his every role is a reward, which should also reward of one American film's greatest assets with greater and greater roles.ArtsATLMay 18, 2018
Bomer is fine, for the record, though the character is a little overly refined and well-put-together to feel completely plausible.Daily Film FixMay 18, 2018
An incremental narrative that's tightly focused on the pain of loss and the need to find something to replace it, "Anything" is a real showcase for acting talent principally that of Lynch and Bomer, but Tierney is mighty fine as the doubting sister.Austin ChronicleMay 17, 2018
As an actor, Lynch exudes authenticity, whether the role calls for sensitivity or terror. If nothing else, Anything affords this character actor a proper leading man's time in the spotlight, and that alone is enough reason to celebrate the film.Common Sense MediaMay 11, 2018
Drug use, strong language in well-meaning love story.Gay City NewsMay 10, 2018
"Anything" never achieves the humanity of the recent Oscar-winning film "A Fantastic Woman," which depicted a similar relationship between an older man and a trans woman with dignity. McNeil's film might be ambitious, but it is not very good.
