  • Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Texan Reviews
  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: Before too long, though, Riley’s satirical aims rise to the surface and then very much stay there, proving that he’s got something  to say.
  • Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish]
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Sorry to Bother You is uncategorizable as a movie because nothing has taken the same risks, but the outcome is stunning.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Some odd pacing aside, Sorry To Bother You is a wild, adventurous, and radical experience; the kind we rarely get from most American comedies. A total breath of fresh air that holds up a mirror to our times.
  • Matt Donato @ Flickering Myth
    • Excerpt: What the fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk (in a good way).
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Despite a chaotic fantasy that careens wildly from political satire into science fiction, this movie remains fun and witty in a lively way that boldly announces its presence. Its freewheeling bonkers mentality is simply too audacious to ignore.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
  • Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
    • Excerpt: Everything that follows needs to be seen to be believed because Riley goes beyond kitchen sink status to aim for the jugular where his message, irreverence, and karmic payback is concerned. He spotlights the carnage, calls out complicity, and presents the reality that it’s never too late to realize you’re a puppet too.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Sorry to Bother You sometimes strains under the pressures of many obstacles that are tough to clear for first-time-directors, but there is clearly a fresh voice coming from a filmmaker finding his footing rather quickly.
  • Frank Ochieng @ The Critical Movie Critics
    • Excerpt: Brilliant in its commentary that taps into race relations, workplace woes, financial urgency, corporate corruption and the temptation of the confused psyche Sorry to Bother You is a challenging concoction of fueled anarchy and alienation set to the background of 9-to-5 office hour hell.
  • Kristy Puchko @ Riot Material
    • Excerpt: Profane and brilliant, Sorry to Bother You is one of the most daring and thrilling comedies of the last 20 years.
  • Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: Boots Riley’s out-of-nowhere satire plays like something Putney Swope‘s long-lost grandson might have dreamed up after an all-night pot-smoking session.
  • Aramide Tinubu @ Shadow and Act
    • Excerpt: Though your reality might be tested, “Sorry to Bother You” is a film you’ll feel deep down in your soul.
