“Maybe if the powder keg had gone off earlier, the second half would be more fun, but instead it’s just a ton of people saying what really went on. It doesn’t exactly throw away the rest of the movie but does make it into a little more work and a little less grand melodrama when it feels like things should be going the other way.” eFilmCritic

“Generous critics might interpret the suffocating sense of artifice that hangs over the movie as a veil of deception crucial to its climactic revelations, but in truth, Home Sweet Home is awkward, inauthentic and frankly rather terrible.” South China Morning Post
