  • Summary: Fashion is a glamorous industry of beautiful people, right? Garmento tells the other side of the story through a dark and comical look beneath the seams of NYC's rag business. (Spanish Moss)

  1. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler
    Michele Maher's Garmento appears more shocked at the fashion industry's cynical side than moviegoers are likely to be, making its drama of corruption a preordained snooze.
  2. Has amusing moments, but falls apart as quickly as a cheap knockoff.
  3. Although Garmento exhibits a flailing comic energy, its eagerness to condemn everything about Seventh Avenue, along with its sub-par acting and a choppy narrative style that finally runs amok, lends it a tone of hysterical finger-pointing.
  4. 40
    Without an assured character at its center, the movie quickly collapses in a heap of moldy clichés and contrived (and not especially funny) situations.
  5. Reviewed by: Ed Park
    The story has too many characters, about whom we know too little.
  6. 25
    A toothless, dated Seventh Avenue satire with shaky script, direction and acting - is the movie equivalent of something you'd find on the deep-markdown rack at Daffy's.
  7. Garmento has nothing going for it. First-time writer-director Michele Maher spent three years working in Manhattan's fashion industry...her attempts at satire are feeble and trite, and her stereotypical characters are without interest.
