Entertainment Weekly
This sincere, delicate, and intrinsically religious comedy may also become that most unexpected of blessings - Danny Boyle's first family classic.
80
L.A. Weekly
Millions is an intelligent children’s film that may prove to be a guilty pleasure for adults.
80
A heartfelt, emotionally delicate children's movie about life and death and all the parts in between.
80
Despite being a pure fantasy that relishes not making literal sense, Millions retains a conviction about what it's doing that makes us believe and enjoy.

ReelViews
It's an uplifting motion picture that will bring smiles to faces, and Boyle's trademark irreverence keeps the feel-good experience from becoming too saccharine.
75
You never know what to expect from Boyle, and that goes triple in this offbeat comedy drama. It's a movie about family that family viewers will find good, quirky fun.
70
Variety
Maintains a bankable charm and innocence even when overdrawn on the special effects side.
70
The A.V. Club
A little broad comedy keeps things perky, but the kids' excellent, restrained acting and the low-key script by "The Claim" screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce hold the whole sprawling project together, from weepy revelations to silly fantasy-saint sequences.
60
By avoiding sentimentality, Millions emerges as a simple tale told with sympathy for a child's point of view.
50
Village Voice
Danny Boyle's Millions is not what we'd expect from the "Trainspotting" and "28 Days Later" director. It's essentially a gentle, kid's-eye parable.
