The direct-to-video prequel was originally intended to be a TV series. When the show was canceled, the footage was reconfigured into a movie, and critics agreed that the movie suffered from the format change.

Adams made a brief appearance as Abby March.
Although some critics admired the leading actors' acting skills, "The Ex" was largely focused on its exaggerated plot.

Most critics viewed "Leap Year" as a generic romantic comedy that was worn out towards the end, but Adams' appearance was seen as a silver lining.
"The bright spot in this bogus, botched mess is Amy Adams, a fine and always interesting actress who sparkles and shines despite the stilted plot," wrote Neil Pond for American Profile.

Critics weren't impressed with the Netflix movie, citing its improbable characters and uneven performances as some of its drawbacks.
"'Hillbilly Elegy' isn't as terrible as the trailers make it look, but as a company it's just plain sad, a film that inspires sympathy for its characters and yet only ends up as a requiem for itself," wrote Stephanie Zacharek for the Time Magazine.

Critics blamed the poor reception of "Lullaby" for its poor cinematography and the paper-thin characters.
"A film like 'Lullaby' should both educate and stimulate the debate," wrote Christy Lemire for Roger Ebert. "Instead, it feels superficial and presumptuous at the same time, albeit with a few moments that actually resonate."

Adams had a small supporting role in the film as Alex.
Unexcusedly profane, "Pumpkin" was targeted largely for gross mistreatment of its subject.
The film critic Emanuel Levy wrote: "This debut film vacillates and diffuses between the crude comedy of the Farrelly brothers and a softer, friendlier news film, an incoherent mixture that proves to be frustrating and also not particularly entertaining."

Although most film critics liked Justice League more than Batman vs. Superman, they still found it long and imperfect.
"Justice League clears the spectacularly low bar for Batman versus Superman," wrote Matthew Norman for the London Evening Standard. "Whether mere appropriateness is a compelling reason to expand the franchise is another question."

Critics fell in love with the cast of "Drop Dead Gorgeous," but felt like part of the dark humor.

Some critics were unimpressed with Vice's winding direction, but most praised the breadth of the lead performances.

Although the film was light and airy, sometimes wrongly, the critics revered McDormand and Adams in the romantic comedy.
