A Million Little Pieces

Critics Consensus

While solidly cast and competently helmed, A Million Little Pieces amounts to little more than a well-intentioned but unpersuasive echo of a deeply problematic memoir.

Movie Info

At the age of 23, James Frey woke up on a plane to find his front teeth knocked out and his nose broken. He had no idea where the plane was headed nor any recollection of the past two weeks. An alcoholic for ten years and a drug addict for three, he checked into a treatment facility shortly after landing. There, he found much more than traditional treatment. He found similar broken souls yearning and fighting for a better life. This is a story of recovery and love, a story of friendship and hope. This is an account of his six weeks in rehab.

  • This one is acted with commitment and often beautifully shot (a crucial event is shown reflected in the polished surface of a bathtub), but adds little to what has gone before.

  • The result is disappointingly dull, the equivalent of buying sham weed. You wait for something to happen, but ... nothing.

  • It plays out this maudlin story with the straightest bat possible, and the surprises are dangerously thin on the ground.

  • Played gruellingly straight and unadventurous, it marinades in the miseries of recovery; a warts-and-all memoir without the 'and all' part.

  • Who is this movie for? Beyond the couple who made it, I have no idea.

    Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An adaptation that's little more than a watered-down version of a story that's already lost so much of its original consistency.
