Randy Myers from San Jose Mercury News writes, “True Story misses its mark at points, but the two leads are excellent, and there are interesting views of fans, social media and the high cost of fame.”
AV Club’s Joshua Alston says, “While True Story will be remembered as Hart’s first go at channeling the barely repressed rage in his stand-up comedy into a dramatic role, it won’t be remembered for much else.”
