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

by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : B-

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

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

LIFE OF CRIME :

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]
