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

by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]

THE QUIET ONES :

“..the arrestingly fierce Cooke, in particular, is surely a star in the making..”
by Mike McCahill [The Guardian]

THE OTHER WOMAN :

“..an ungainly, often flat-footed yet weirdly compelling romantic dramedy..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

LOCKE :

“..even with nothing to cut away to and no flashbacks to offer context, the film manages to stay as tight as a vise..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

BRICK MANSIONS :

“..it is, however, kind of fun, and in this case, maybe that's enough..”
by Jason Gorber [TwitchFilm]

YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL :

“..a fascinating contemplation of adolescent sexuality that will be a star-making platform for its young lead, Marine Vacth..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

COTTAGE COUNTRY :

“..the movie had potential but just didn't live up to it..”
by Ryan Lueders [Reel Ryan]

2 STATES :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
