“..too many times the performers - male and female - are at the point of hysterics in the most nails-on-a-chalkboard way..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
“..the plot of Where Do We Go Now? springs from a gender divide..”
by Maria Garcia [Film Journal International]
2.5 of 4

“..the picture is dotted with whimsical comedic touches and even includes a smattering of spontaneousUmbrellas of Cherbourg-style musical numbers..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Movieline]
3 of 5

“..the number, which seems like an outtake from another movie, is a playful diversion in a series of skits..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
Review rate : C+

“..the movie gets mired in these deceptive mechanics. It shows no curiosity about the hatred, so the characters seem less than whole..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
2 of 5

“..the filmmaker's grasp on this inherently uneasy material is much less confident..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
“..the female empowerment message here is fairly soft..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
“..suffers from a serious clash of styles, but it's also brave and startlingly funny-at one point verging on "Mamma Mia!"-when it isn't bleak or shocking..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
Review rate : A-

“..in turning such a vast conflict into a comedic romp, Where Do We Go Now? sometimes feels like it's cheating or cheapening its subject matter..”
by Tasha Robinson [AV Club]
“..feels like it has been dosed with sugar to mask its distressingly bitter taste..”
by Alison Willmore [Village Voice]
2 of 4

“..awkwardly hybridizing somber politicized drama with regional humor..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
“..all it offers is a picturesque location, likable characters and the best of intentions..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]

“..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..”

LAST WEEKEND :

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