Movie Reviews

  • with queries about trauma, loyalty, and race on its mind, "On the Count of Three" achieves something near impossible in its conclusion, distilling its themes into something both heartbreaking and disarmingly hopeful
    by Tomris Laffly [Harper's Bazaar ]
  • while it's ultimately a little too messy to work quite as well as it could have, given the interesting and ambitious ingredients, "On the Count of Three" is proof that Jerrod Carmichael is a director to be excited about
    3 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • this absurdity isn't easy to capture on screen, and On the Count of Three is an uneven movie, not quite sure how to balance its bleak subject matter with the comedy credentials of its writers and director/star
    by Hannah Woodhead [Little White Lies ]
  • an imperfect but serious-minded debut; The story of a suicide pact that hits some speed bumps; it's hardly a black comedy -- more an appropriately sour (last) day-in-the-life that affords a few bitter laughs along the way
    by John DeFore [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a suicide pact turns into killer buddy comedy in Jerrod Carmichael's debut; "On the Count of Three" can ultimately afford the temerity to thread the needle between comedy and desolation because of how Abbott and Carmichael work together
    Review rate : A- by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • a self-consciously gimmicky buddy flick that’s informed with jolts of anguish and gallows humor; Jerrod Carmichael is a volatile director and an electric actor, but the screenplay routinely force the characters into formulaic, trivializing scenarios
    2.5 of 4 by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine ]
  • a good movie exists in "On the Count of Three". But a film with such challenging subject matter needed a more experienced director capable of shading the dark comedy and the heartfelt spirit with an assured visual hand
    Review rate : C- by Robert Daniels [The Playlist ]
