★★★★★
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

"Actor Kumail Nanjiani breaks out with an autobiographical girlfriend-in-a-coma comedy that signals his arrival to the top."
★★★★★
- Joshua Rothkopf , Time Out

"A comedy with heart and soul to spare."
★★★★
- Mark Kermode, Observer

"Edgy and hilarious, Nanjiani and Gordon’s true story of cross-cultural love is a Trump-baiting marvel that’s worth the hype."
★★★★
- Jimi Famurewa, Empire

" One of the glories of the film is its ability to find comic details in the most bleak and oppressive situations."
★★★★
- Geoffrey Macnab, Independent

"The film is a hoot. It’s a hit. It’s a smash."
★★★★

"A hugely enjoyable, lovable comedy."
