    Once you get into the groove of Harmony and Me and realize the film is not only very tightly scripted, hilarious, and quite brilliantly acted, you’ll quickly be won over.
  2. Harmony is a finely tuned comedy, complete with precisely scripted jokes and comic set pieces that swerve toward the playfully perverse.

    Harmony and Me, written and directed by Austin-based Bob Byington, represents much of what is wonderful and fresh about the recent wave of ultra-low-budget American independent filmmaking.

    Bob Byington directs with an exact sense of what he wants; consider the perfect timing of his use of Harmony's mom (Margie Beegle). How she says "don't ask me" and "leave me out of it" is unreasonably funny.

    Slight, indifferently shot, and entirely lacking in ballast, Harmony and Me's sole justification for being is that it's consistently very funny.

    Bristling with wry wit and peopled with a rogue's gallery of disaffected losers.
  7. Despite the film’s sketchy aesthetic and barely animate lead, its tone is carefully contrived: I’ll wager no one in your circle is as dryly funny or spontaneously surreal as Harmony’s nonsupport group.
  8. A slow meander through the mostly stagnant life of a character hardly worth the bother.

    I saw this at a screening in Michigan and truly think it's the funniest film I've seen all year thus far. Not kidding - it's I saw this at a screening in Michigan and truly think it's the funniest film I've seen all year thus far. Not kidding - it's seriously funny. Full Review »
