    Jarringly insensitive and amateurish debut feature.
  2. Greenebaum's tedious, film-school level exercise in self-indulgence and exploitation.
  3. Parts of the film play like the world's slowest and most insensitive reality show (Who Wants to Be an Octogenarian?).

    Assisted Living has really received some positive golden reviews but at the crux of it is that "there is truth inside every joke." Overall, definitely heartfelt and authentic feel to the story. Would recommend. Full Review »

    Really cute, won't win an Oscar, but it held my interest. It was a mix of sad, but also funny as real life is.
