-Anastasia M., imdb.com
“Hysterical madcap comedy with great acting and enough plot darkness to keep you watching and laughing. Location so authentic you'll think you're there. You need to see this!”
"Easy laughs and no-hurry realism coupled with great performances... Recommended."
"Gregg Russell's A Free Bird is the Matthew McConaughey of loser comedies; relaxed and self-assured to a fault. ... Full of easy laughs and situational comedy arising simply out of folks being natural losers, A Free Bird represents a fine way to knock off some brain cells after a hard day's work."
