Critics Consensus

There's the seed of a strong series in Apples Never Fall thanks to its outstanding cast and intriguing hook, but those promising elements can't quite polish up a rote story.

Apples Never Fall: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Wenlei Ma The Nightly (AU) Another relatively generic family crime drama about upper-middle-class white people with secrets. And there are already heaps of those. Apr 1, 2024 Full Review Apples Never Fall: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Judy Berman TIME Magazine It’s a serviceable premise for a potboiler, despite the thin characters and trope-laden plot. But subpar storytelling robs Apples Never Fall of all suspense—or, really, any other form of enjoyment. Mar 15, 2024 Full Review Apples Never Fall: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Peter Travers ABC News The enduring star shine of Annette Bening as the matriarch of a dysfunctional tennis family, will keep you glued to this whodunit series, based on the bestseller by Liane Moriarty, even as the soapy script can’t resist the urge to do the trite thing. Mar 15, 2024 Full Review Apples Never Fall: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Robert W. Butler Butler's Cinema Scene Apples Never Fall dishes a ton of armchair psychology, a mess of subplots that do little more than pad the proceedings, and a jumbled time frame that makes it hard to figure out exactly where we are in the 7-episode story. Jun 7, 2024 Full Review Apples Never Fall: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (5) EscribiendoCine Staff EscribiendoCine At first glance, it seems banal but eventually gets quite interesting; it keeps you in suspense and also makes you reflect on the value of family. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 May 22, 2024 Full Review Apples Never Fall: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Eileen Jones The Jacobin Annette Bening’s fantastic performance can’t save an otherwise bland “whodunit” thriller.

S D Love Annette Bening but this wasn’t her best, a bit over acted for me. Sam Neil? I could hardly watch him, it was as if he was trying to read off cue cards. Jake Lacy, now he is GOOD. I can’t wait for him to be lead role in a bad guy movie, or Batman! He emits evil, anger, plotting so well. Overall, this was a movie I couldn’t keep myself from fast forwarding through. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/04/24 Full Review William F The show was alright. Likely will be able to predict where the story is going, a lot of family members dealing with past traumas. The good cast is mostly what holds the show up. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/02/24 Full Review Tom F It’s not the worst limited series around, but maybe the most forgettable. An excellent cast squandered. Rated 1.5/5 Stars • Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/26/24 Full Review Lafe M It started off strong and intriguing, then falls apart with nothing to offer but finger pointing at who has the worst morals. Bunch of degenerates. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/26/24 Full Review Katie L I loved this series! Had to force myself not to binge it. I'm not sure why this didn't get better reviews. It's classic Moriarty... family issues layered with mystery. Annette Benning and most of the other actors did a fantastic job playing their characters. My only complaint is that, with the exception of Stan, the family didn't take responsibility for their respective roles in Joy's disappearance. I would have liked to see that. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/25/24 Full Review Allison D I loved this series. I watched it in 2 evenings. Great actors and I was hooked. It was a suspenseful, short, mini-series that kept me engaged and distracted from my life. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
