Do these stars combine to produce an entertaining, heart warming film? Let's see what a number of movie critics from around the country think about that...
- Smart People is a borderline-excruciating exercise in trying to replicate the eccentric charm of Little Miss Sunshine. -- Slant Magazine
- It could've been much better. The characters don't really progress too far (any developments are too minute to be appreciated), leaving this movie as really just a bunch of A-List names with nothing much else to offer. -- Film Threat
- [Screenwriter] Poirier is a master at dialogue. His script crackles with sharp lines and he gives all his scenes a splendid comic undertow. -- The Hollywood Reporter
- Has enough funny moments and original ideas that it's genuinely enjoyable based on the strength of its script and cast alone. -- ComingSoon.net
