"A cheerfully treacly story of sisterhood, adversity overcome and music healing even the deepest wounds."

— Ed Power Daily, Telegraph (UK)

"It tugs at the heartstrings with such determination and sincerity that there may not be a dry eye in the cinema."

— Allan Hunter, Screen Daily

"[Military Wives is] twee and cheerful without disrespecting the lived experiences it seeks to make light entertainment out of."

— Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)

"Gosh darn it, it's hard not to warm to a film that features an a cappella version of Yazoo's "Only You"... and Kristin Scott Thomas having a verbal cat fight in a parking lot."

— Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

"Inspired by BBC television series The Choir, director Peter Cattaneo's Military Wives is every bit as briskly cheerful and modestly scaled as that real-life origin story suggests."

— Danny Leigh, Financial Times
