REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..yet the filmmakers also have a bad case of myopia when it comes to their heroine, who - like the characters on TV's "Girls" - may not engender all the empathy they're counting on..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
2.5 of 4

“..transcends being just another chick flick and becomes an exploration of a subject that should ring true for just about every female viewer..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..this intentionally meta movie feels less subversive than Safety Not Guaranteed..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
“..there are strong, complicated emotions implicit in the story..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..the script is full of vegan references, which represent its only true attempt at originality, but that's far from enough..”
by David Noh [Film Journal International]
“..one of the strengths the filmmakers have is in dialogue that is smartly sharp without seeming too precious or too caustic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
2 of 5

“..lister-Jones makes an amusingly dry sidekick, but she’s basically recycling her role on the sitcom “Whitney.”..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
Review rate : B+

“..it’s a sweet little diddle of a movie that doesn’t make the mistake of tying everything up in a big bright bow..”
by Peter Rainer [Christian Science Monitor]
“..it is the movie’s uneven writing-half funny and daring, half punishing and senseless..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
3 of 4

“..in many ways, Lola Versus puts an indie spin on a Hollywood romantic comedy..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : B-

“..has made irrelevant..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3.5 of 5

“..clearly shot swiftly and off the cuff, the movie has a great cast..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]

CRONIES :

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

WITH THIS RING :

“..the dialogue and complex weave of relationships feel believable and natural. So even if the outcomes don't feel like revelations, they feel right, and the trip to get there feels the same..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

PROJECT ALMANAC :

“..modestly entertaining..”
by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian]

JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS :

“..the Justice League members have some great moments to enjoy, although they all take a backseat to the main Aquaman plot..”
by Joshua Yehl [IGN Movies]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
