    A curious film with real heart but questionable technique. This art house fodder is just quirky and fresh enough to catch on with audiences.
  2. Assisted Living's overall mix doesn't quite jell, though there are worthwhile moments.

    Assisted Living gets a little better as it wears on, and at least it's refreshingly short.

    The occasionally contrived music-video slicky edge, and the fact that there's no way on God's green earth that what takes place in Assisted Living happens in one day, it's a noble effort.

    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.
