Movie Reviews

  • writer/director David A. Rosenthal lets the story play out with genuine sweetness, both in the drama and the songs
    3 of 4 by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times ]
  • too contrived for these immensely convincing, human, damaged characters
    by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com ]
  • there are no surprises in David M. Rosenthal's film
    by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice ]
  • the film's original songs are low key
    by Ray Bennett [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • packaging is unobtrusively pro
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
  • once it's reduced to a two-hander for Nivola and Breslin, Janie Jones has a lightweight sweetness, owing largely to their chemistry
    by Ian Buckwalter [NPR ]
  • despite its panoply of cliches, Janie Jones does admittedly work up some goodwill once you accept it on its almost defiantly generic, low-stakes terms
    2 of 4 by Kenji Fujishima [Slant Magazine ]
  • "Janie Jones" is billed as "inspired by the true story" of its writer-director, David M. Rosenthal. Impossible. No one's life is this boring
    1 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
