2.5/4 / 10

Silverman's performance, while good, is by no means great, and she is not able to transcend what amounts to a little too much sweetness and light in this cinematic "Smile."

2/4 / 10

Silverman is far and away the best part of "I Smile Back," a strained entry in the Mad Housewife genre ...

3/4 / 10

A tough, unbending, sometimes brutally truthful profile of one woman's addiction and the havoc it wreaks on herself and just about everyone who matters to her.

3/4 / 10

Silverman's scarily good in this role - sick-joke-funny when the behavior supports it, raw yet subtle at Laney's most reckless junctures.

3/4 / 10

The movie's intelligent respect for that which is unknowable allows it to cover an enormous swath of ground in just 85 minutes. Sarah Silverman is very good in "I Smile Back," and the movie is even better.
