Fresh: It sparkles with a magic all its own as an engagingly performed piece of Midwestern whimsy and stoicism. Mr. Altman's flair for ensemble spectacle and seamless improvisation in the midst of utter chaos is as apparent as ever.
- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Wednesday, June 14, 2006
Fresh: Nondevotees also should find a home in this agreeable, accessible Companion.
- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Friday, June 9, 2006
Found some of it funny and charming but given the talents involved I might have hoped for more. Some of the improvs seemed clumsy and I just didn't buy some of the characters. A little too much music?

Classic Alman in his final act. Altman in his element, big ensemble cast, dialogue that all speaks at once, flowing camera movements all quintessential Altman. A Parire Home Companion is a tribute to the past and to the career of one of the greatest directors ever to grace the silver screen. Heartwarming storytelling, singing and lots of laughs with a stunning vocal duos by Meryl and Lilly will win you over. In the end a melancholy treasure of the past and a film of true depth. To you Mr Altman RIP.
