MD-06487.CR2MOTHER’S DAY

“Audiences who like a shred of cohesive story telling or characterization, or even a chuckle during a supposed comedy, should stay very far away.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“The film is harmless, yes, but also irrelevant and insignificant, even when it tries to toss in the occasional social comment.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“Questions aside as to the suitability of such secular, adult treats when it comes to religious communities and children, the film rattles along deftly, tracing its obvious story arcs with verve and humor.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“DOUGH is the very definition of “bang for your buck,” assuming that hodgepodge is your thing.” - Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
