“..the lesson of the lovely-looking, but disappointing..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
Review rate : D+

“..sadly, rather than melding the best of two worlds, the film only takes the worst of their soap operas..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
0.5 of 4

“..offers us microwaved melodrama and tasteless, tear-jerking, artificially flavored suffering..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
“..as the parallel friendships evolve over time, both push and pull between platonic and erotic; it's to the film's credit that it never definitively suggests that love can only be one or the other..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]

by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

PERSECUTED :

“..terrible attempt at a political thriller for the religious right is aimed not at Christians in general but at a certain breed of them..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT :

“..as the stars roam those gardens and vistas in their jaunty flapper couture, the story feels shapeless, un-tailored, defiantly off the rack..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

SEX TAPE :

“.."Sex Tape" doesn't seduce, it doesn't surprise and it certainly doesn't satisfy. It only leaves you feeling a little taken advantaged of..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
