Critic Reviews of "Not Easily Broken"Time OutApril 17, 2009
That's a reasonable message, but it might feel more resonant if the script were a little fairer to both sexes.L.A. WeeklyJanuary 15, 2009
'Don't go all Waiting to Exhale on me,' advises one of Clarice's soul sisters late in the film. If only.Entertainment WeeklyJanuary 14, 2009
Laughter through tears is director Bill Duke's M.O., and he hits the bull's-eye of that modest target.Hollywood ReporterJanuary 09, 2009
[It] has the saving grace of a lively sense of humor that certainly helps the spiritual medicine go down.Los Angeles TimesJanuary 09, 2009
Not Easily Broken isn't perfect, but it is persuasive in its portrait of a husband and wife who must decide whether their frayed marriage is worth fighting to save.Minneapolis Star TribuneJanuary 09, 2009
A well-crafted message picture disguised as soap opera.BET.comJune 10, 2009
The always immaculate, passionate and soulful Jenifer Lewis -- she could read the words in a phone book and make you feel it. The Hollywood veteran nearly saves the film.Daily Express (UK)April 21, 2009
This is glossy, forgettable fare more at home as a TV matinÃ©e.Film4April 17, 2009
It is unspeakably naff, unintentionally funny and unapologetically Christian. Judged on its own terms, it's a resounding success. But for non-believers it will likely prove a living purgatory.Times (UK)April 17, 2009
It has all the philosophical depth of a greetings card message but it's underscored with a nasty little edge of misogyny.GuardianApril 17, 2009
What should be easily broken is a large china vase over the head of everyone involved in this profoundly creepy, yucky, and chillingly reactionary relationship drama.Total FilmApril 17, 2009
Not Easily Broken is 99 long minutes worth of sobbing and hand wringing, with little insight and even less humour. Deadly stuff.
