Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Read more

Wesley Morris, Boston Globe: Jensen is an accomplished screenwriter with a knack for developing people amid comic nonsense. Read more

Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times: The movie is all surface, loudly clamoring for attention and then losing its voice. Read more

Denver Post: Read more

Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly: Some will see this as a movie about how we're all God's children. I saw only the misanthropic fulminations of Jensen's runaway ego. Read more

Jan Stuart, Newsday: For all its roughhouse antics, Adam's Apples is almost improbably sweet: a rude comedy that the devout and heathen alike can hold to their breasts. Read more

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News: Designed to elicit as many gasps as laughs, Anders Thomas Jensen's pitch-black comedy offers an audaciously skewed take on good vs. evil. Read more

V.A. Musetto, New York Post: I'm sure there's a decent black comedy in the material, but Adam's Apples, by Danish director Anders Thomas Jensen, isn't it. Read more

G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle: This oddball story is more than a one-joke concept. Its characters are sometimes cruel, sometimes sweet, but always recognizably human. Read more

Tom Beer, Time Out: Adam's Apples strives for black comedy, but winds up being neither funny nor spiritually enlightening. Read more

Ed Gonzalez, Village Voice: A noxious, flippant mix of snark and biblical allegory. Read more
