“..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 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]

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]
