"In James Adolphus' SXSW-selected documentary Being Mary Tyler Moore, there's an intent to re-establish Moore as a feminist icon, a status that has become unfortunately diminished for no good reason." – The Austin Chronicle
"To watch Laura Petrie and Mary Richards (and Beth from Ordinary People) in action is to invariably come away with boundless respect. Adolphus and his documentary understand that." – The Hollywood Reporter
