"We know from the beginning where the witty and warm Spoiler Alert is headed, but not how moving that journey will be."

— Thelma Adams, AARP Movies for Grownups

"It’s heartfelt, genuine, funny and yes, terribly sad but it also celebrates love and life, even when it’s dealing with a tragic illness."

— Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News

"Both Parsons and Aldridge surrender to the material, and we are moved as Kit and Michael come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of their love for each other."

— David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle

"The film is a testament to the beautiful greys in love that may sting in the moment, but when a bigger picture is forced upon us, are appreciated for the balance they provide."

— Rachel Ho, Globe and Mail

"Anchored by the ridiculously charming Aldridge's chemistry with Parsons (distant but effective in comparison), Spoiler Alert defies expectations throughout, refusing to adhere to one genre or storytelling convention."

— Patrick Gomez, Entertainment Weekly

"The film challenges itself to be both amusing and emotionally involving where matters of life and death are concerned. Fortunately, it manages to more or less succeed on both counts due to its ever-ready wise-crack nature and sympathetic direction."

— Todd McCarthy, Deadline Hollywood Daily
