Rating: 5/5 -- Above all, though it is a story about breaking down barriers to build a friendship and Mortensen and Ali did that beautifully. Full Review
4 stars out 5 -- What makes the film so compelling is the chemistry that crackles from the central pair of actors.
Rating: 3/5 -- It has a pleasing and homey aesthetic which befits the easy-going tone. Linda Cardellini brings sunlight and sincerity to a threadbare role as Tony Lip's wife and Director Peter Farrelly is never heavy-handed with the sentimentality. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- . If one doesn't think too much about it, it's easy to enjoy Green Book on a surface level because it's well-intentioned Oscar-bait with touching performances... Full Review
GREEN BOOK is a savvy and super effective piece of popular entertainment....With superior acting by two of today’s top actors -- Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali...

Rating: 2.5/4 -- An enthusiastic and well-intentioned but ultimately clichéd approach is abundantly evident in the final product. Full Review
Distinctive and amusing turns by Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali make Peter Farrelly’s first solo feature outing a lively and likable diversion.
Burly Bronx bouncer Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) is hired by refined African-American composer and musician Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) to chauffer him around the Jim Crow South in 1962 for an eight-week tour. The mismatched men form a friendship as Tony learns first-hand the disrespect and outright racism from white people across regional and class lines that Don must endure to perform. Directed by Peter Farrelly.
