Love, Gilda is a very affectionate reminder of her brief and brilliant career.” – Jason Zinoman,  The New York Times

 Love, Gilda is penetrating, painful and personal.” “For an hour and a half at least, the sorely-missed Radner feels alive again.” – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

 “Forty years later, her comedy looks more sublime than ever. As you watch Love, Gilda, though, it becomes clear that what made Gilda Radner special—and uproarious— was her spirit: open, smiling, generous, euphoric.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“For older fans, it’s a welcome excuse to reminisce. For newcomers it’s an entertaining primer on Radner’s life, times, demons and famous inventions.” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
