New York Post’s The Broken Hearts Gallery review by Johnny Oleksinski
- The film’s worst offense is that it works way too hard for it to be a light watch.
- Overall, the resulting scenarios are never as delightful or as poignant as the film thinks they are. They straddle a dull middle ground that rarely yields any meaty emotions or satisfying jokes.
- Despite its shortcomings, the film is a swell vehicle for Viswanathan, an actress who is effortlessly charming, even if she has been directed to go overboard here.
(2.5/5 Stars, from our reading of the review)
San Francisco Chronicle‘s The Broken Hearts Gallery review by Bob Strauss
- Risking COVID-19 exposure to see The Broken Hearts Gallery, a sweet, innocuous romantic comedy available only in theaters, is an individual decision. But a warning to anyone who does go: You’re likely to catch a serious case of the cutes.
- The good news is that Viswanathan is a superb technical actor and impresses with her ability to deliver gobs of gab, pratfalls and crying jags like she means it, no matter how artificially they were conceived.
- Maybe this is the comforting thing returning theatergoers need more than trying to figure out Tenet. Broken Hearts Gallery is designed to simply make you happy, maybe want to pet a puppy or fall in love and kiss someone new.

Entertainment Weekly‘s The Broken Hearts Gallery Review by Mary Sollosi
- The Selena Gomez-produced rom-com falls somewhere among Someone Great, How to Be Single, and even HBO’s Girls.
- Krinsky’s script would have benefited from a few more passes. The movie wants to be more than a generic rom-com by exploring the painful shadow side to romance. But it’s too messy to offer any meaningful observations.
- It’s easy to parade around an ostentatiously broken heart, but that only means anything if it comes with baring a little bit of soul.
Rated C- = 2/5 stars
Variety‘s The Broken Hearts Gallery review by Owen Gleiberman
- Watching the film, you know you’re seeing an unabashed spawn of Girls and Sex and the City. A kind of anthropological Williamsburg careerist rom-com set. In this case, in a woke wonderland of post-feminist awareness.
- Natalie Krinsky, who wrote and directed The Broken Hearts Gallery, is an unheralded filmmaker (this is her first feature), and she has a witty and spirited commercial voice.
- You could say these are characters out of a kind of Girls Lite, but just because they’re not deep doesn’t mean they’re not fun.

The Guardian The Broken Hearts Gallery Review by Cath Clarke
- There is no messing with [Geraldine] Viswanathan, who is undoubtedly the main attraction.
- Lucy is a character with Bridget Jones, Sex and the City and Girls in her DN. But Viswanathan brings something of her own to the role: an excitable sense of fun and fast-talking wit.
- This film is pure romcom fantasy but Broken Hearts Gallery is radical in one important respect. Challenging the film industry’s perceptions of what a leading woman looks like.
Original score 3/5 Stars
