What the critics are saying:
RogerEbert.com, Odie Henderson
This down-to-earth approach works surprisingly well because Southside with You never loses sight of the primary tenet of a great romantic comedy: All you need is two people whom the audience wants to see get together—then you put them together.
Hitfix, Drew McWeeny
Southside With You is quietly romantic, but more than that, it burns with a deep sense of optimism.
Time Out London, Dave Calhoun
It’s a small, successful sketch of now-great lives.
The Playlist, Noel Murray
The movie holds to a steady but too-straight rhythm, hitting all the expected romantic-drama beats, right down to the occasional argument that threatens to stop the date cold. But Southside With You is also winningly sweet and earnest, and refreshingly frank about the problems that minorities face when they try to get ahead in a culture dominated by white males.
