Sight and Sound
Rating: A+ -- A movie people will have a good time watching with their families for enduring decades. Full Review
Paralyzing joys are the very heart of George Bailey's dilemma; they are, to borrow words from George's father, "deep in the race." Full Review
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
It's a Wonderful Life is about hunger. It's about greed. It's about the many ways a good man is stymied. Finally, it's about George Bailey, whose decency prevents him even from killing himself. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- There's sex and death here, elation and depression, hope and despair. Full Review
Little White Lies
The film shows all Capra's strength, in warm and tender detail, and his weakness, in the whimsey that turns real evil to the ogre of a tinselled, happy-ending tale. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Rating: 2/5 -- One problem with the film is that it's only in the acquisition of money and the community subjugating their own savings and needs for George, that his rebirth can be complete. Full Review
A good but slightly ineffectual man tries to off himself after an error that really wasn't his fault. In Christmas Carol fashion, his crusty-but-lovable guardian angel shows up to give him a tour of the world without his presence, and it isn't a pretty place. Moral courage, small-town American life, civic cooperation, and family love are glorified; corporate greed and self-involvement are vilified; at the climax, a blanket of snow like spun sugar makes everything pure and clean like redemption itself.
