    In his film's better moments, Kollek makes us laugh at these visions while also revealing their grace and frailty.
  2. An intimate, small-scale movie in the nicest sense.

    Boasts engaging characters, inventive situations and a series of satisfying punchlines that will send viewers out with a smile.
  4. As usual, Thomson steers right into the heart of vulnerability, with a painfully true performance as a guarded, confused soul.

    A warmhearted, hardworking little comedy that owes a lot of its charm to its modesty.
  6. One of those genially paced, character-driven indies, and succeeds as such very well.
  7. Despite a script that occasionally calls for some embarrassingly awkward lines, Kollek's cast generally acquits itself well.

    The film's power lies in the fact that the façade is crumbling on the actress even as she clings to it. That this is not a pathetic sight is due to the grit that we glimpse through the cracks. It's Barbie, becoming human.

    Tries hard to be charming but succeeds only occasionally.

    There's nothing wrong with Fast Food Fast Women that a casting director and a rewrite couldn't have fixed.
  11. 38
    Kollek's fondness for whimsical plot turns adds still more random elements to a movie that at times seems edited by a blindfolded monkey.

    Dreary and dull.
  13. 30
    Yet another of Israeli-born filmmaker Amos Kolleck's pointless, meandering tales of eccentric New Yorkers navigating the treacherous waters of love and survival.
  14. It's not wrong to wish these actors were working in the service of a better script or more assured direction, but it's probably also possible to simply take pleasure in their performances.
  15. Has a vacant, inept, why-oh-why feeling from its opening minutes and only gets worse.
  16. Kollek is a fringe auteur who makes independent films the old fashioned way: no budget, static camera, a script that telegraphs its tiny, paste gem ironies.
  17. Overly familiar, poorly cast and often annoyingly crude New York comedy that never finds its groove.
  18. 20
    Almost creates a sense of dread as you sit watching its raft of aimless, self-absorbed neurotics clang into one another.
  19. 20
    Fast Food Fast Women is "Sex and the City" in Payless shoes. An incoherent jumble of characters and situations.
