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]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
