The reviews are in for Don’t Worry Darling and you may want to rethink going to watch it

One review said it’s lucky Harry Styles plans to focus on his music💀


Don’t Worry Darling had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and fans were eagerly waiting for reviews and honestly, they have been so savage. While some were distracted by the alleged feud between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh, others have been patiently waiting to find out if the film is even worth watch. From the looks of some of the reviews that have been published and its 45 per cent Rotten Tomatoes score, it’s looking as though it may not be worth the time to go and see it.

If you’re still unsure about booking your cinema tickets, have a read of these savage reviews about Don’t Worry Darling:

‘This movie just isn’t very good’

Brian Viner for the Daily Mail gave Don’t Worry Darling two stars in his review of the film, saying it’s “lucky for us” Harry plans to focus on music and not acting in the future. Yikes. Viner said the movie is a “shame” because Florence Pugh “gives a fine, feisty performance” but the film itself is “at least three parts style, to one part substance”.

‘It’s an empty shell’

BBC’s review did not hold back either, especially when it came to sharing how Florence Pugh was let down with the material in the film. Steph Green said: “Don’t Worry Darling offers her little chance to show audiences anything new.” No one seems to be impressed by Harry’s acting in this film, with Green saying his “finest moment” in the movie was when he got up to do a song and dance number.

‘Don’t Worry Darling might just be this year’s festival trainwreck’

The Independent wrote the movie was not the “disaster that some predicted”, but it was “messy”. In all the reviews, the focus seems to be on Harry Styles’ performance and they aren’t glowing. Geoffrey Macnab said: “Styles gives a surprisingly dull and low-wattage performance as Jack”, just like his “dull” character.

‘It’s a movie marooned in a desert of unoriginality’

Peter Bradshaw for The Guardian rated the movie two stars, and said it “spoils its own ending simply by unveiling it”. Well, it doesn’t sound like the best start to a film. Despite the film being slightly interesting, when the big secret is finally revealed, Bradshaw described it as “absurdly negligible and contrived”.
