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]

“..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

by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : B-

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