The Press Reviews

  • The film is often hard to take, offering laughs that are rarely cathartic enough to compensate. Full Review

  • Nothing spoils a family gathering quite like politics, and no movie has captured the way such debates can turn ugly quite like Ike Barinholtz's "The Oath"... Full Review

  • Wants to have its pie and eat it too - lobbing political hand grenades and then running away, refusing to engage in the consequences the scenarios set up. Full Review

  • Mr. Barinholtz has enough cachet to assemble an excellent cast, although he's not as canny about using it. Full Review

  • The movie's dystopia-meets-family-dinner mix feels like it's building to something bigger than the sum of its rants ... and then it doesn't. Full Review
