Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The most powerful draw of the production, at least for those over age 25, is nostalgia. The film functions as a time machine to take the viewer back to when (s)he watched "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood” on television and re-introduces the man who functioned as a friend/mentor/father-figure.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good Won't You Be My Neighbor? performs the invaluable service of letting us witness the man in action with those who meant the most to him: children. In these troubled times, it's a good feeling to see a funny, touching and vital doc that is both timely and timeless.

Rex Reed Full Review
Excellent ...director Morgan Neville has crafted a film that so deeply embodies its subject that it almost transcends it. And despite sometimes coming off as a kind of 20th century Jesus in a cardigan, Mister Rogers is not coming back. But it looks like, as demonstrated in this remarkable film, he left a few things behind that just might be able to help.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good ...Won't You Be My Neighbor? is at its core a crowd-pleaser, so every unflattering fact unearthed about Rogers is offset by a dozen glowing ones... ...Neville wisely keeps the focus primarily on Rogers's message rather than his private life.
