"Every last thing the movie shows us about addiction, and the effect it can have upon those who are trying to save an addict from himself, is entirely authentic."--Variety
"The acting is uniformly excellent, and the movie looks almost disconcertingly great..."--Entertainment Weekly
"The detachment at work in 'Beautiful Boy' suggests an attempt to speak clearly and truthfully, to resist the clichés of the addiction drama while acknowledging that those clichés can hardly be rewritten."--Los Angeles Times
