Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[I]t does capture the show’s emotional intimacy—no small task in a field that favors razzle dazzle." -- Grade: B
A.V. Club (23 Dec 2014, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "Some of the best musical moments come when the characters are singing on their own, yet as part of a larger number....Marshall is an old pro, and he makes these numbers work."
Richard Roeper (22 Dec 2014, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "There are brilliant, bewitching moments allied to hilarious and touching ones."
Angie Errigo (2 Jan 2015, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[S]ince it's a Sondheim joint, it's stuffed cheek by jowl with songs so infectiously peppy you'll be humming them for weeks."
Chris Nashawaty (25 Dec 2014, )
Hollywood Reporter
"This twisty fairy-tale mash-up shows an appreciation for the virtues of old-fashioned storytelling, along with a welcome dash of subversive wit."
David Rooney (17 Dec 2014, )
Los Angeles Times
"[Marshall] wraps all of his love for Broadway musicals around his cast, pulling out performances that have already drawn awards nominations for Streep and Blunt."
Betsy Sharkey (24 Dec 2014, )
New York Times
"[T]his witty and touching mash-up of several Grimm fairy tales viewed through a post-Freudian prism reimagines Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Jack and other fairy tale figures as complex, self-aware human beings in transition."
Stephen Holden (25 Dec 2014, )
RogerEbert.com
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The singing is often splendid. The bits of humor are deftly handled."
Susan Wloszczyna (24 Dec 2014, )
Rolling Stone
"Meryl Streep is a hoot....It's the peerless Sondheim score, however truncated, that makes this Woods a prime destination."
Peter Travers (23 Dec 2014, )
Total Film
"[The performances] are largely on song, with Streep digging to find pain in the pantomime, Blunt licking her comic chops and Chris Pine attacking his puffed-up Prince with appropriate gusto..."
Jamie Graham (5 Jan 2015, )
USA Today
"With its ominous gnarled trees and enchanted look, INTO THE WOODS is a place worth exploring....The songs in this re-imagining of Grimm fairy tales are well-orchestrated and, for the most part, strikingly sung."
Claudia Puig (24 Dec 2014, )
Variety
"[The] witty duet, 'Agony,' performed in the midst of a babbling brook, is one of the film’s most dynamic numbers."
Scott Foundas (17 Dec 2014, )
