  • Summary: Burning Annie is a humorous slice of college life, filled with authentic characters and moments sure to strike a chord. It is an up-close look at the fallout of our media-saturated society, a love story for the post-existential generations, and a wise-beyond-its-hero's-years study of human interaction that delivers poignancy and laughs to spare.

    A thoroughly professional comedy, well paced, attractively photographed and smartly acted.

    There's too much going on in Burning Annie but one thing goes remarkably right: Ordynans's exceptionally canny script nails how thoroughly pop culture has colonized our sentiments.

    Burning Annie has funny moments, but it suffers from an overflow of characters.
  4. Reviewed by: Ronnie Scheib
    Pic relies on nerdy world-weary irony to carry the day, but doesn't convincingly draw its characters.
  5. 38
    Pays backhanded homage to Woody Allen via the travails of college loser Max (Gary Lundy), who fears that years of wallowing in "Annie Hall" have permanently poisoned his love life.
  6. Reviewed by: Rory L. Aronsky
    Even with a look at many of these people's relationship problems, there's nothing remotely interesting to listen to when they talk. In this case, it's the fault of the script, which doesn't provide much of anything interesting to keep it going for as long as it does.

    A few laughs but overall a very tedious, amateurish endeavor.
