  • Summary: Alex, Tim, and Chris view the women in their lives through the dimensions of a computer screen or the lens of a camera-phone, as they struggle to balance their online fantasies and addictions with the demands of real life. This up-to-the-second feature intimately explores masculinity in the new millennium, a time when young men are trying to decipher the mixed messages of modern relationships and technology. Featuring a nonprofessional cast, video contributions from people all over the world, and original music by lead actor Kevin Bewersdorf, this funny and thoughtful film offers an honest portrait of how the latest tools of communication can either help us click or turn us off.

    For non-actors, everyone in this film really pulls their character off extremely well.

    Joe Swanberg - who directed, edited, lensed, co-wrote and played one of the lovelorn characters - has done wonders with a nothing budget and a personable cast of nonprofessional actors. For viewers so disposed, there are several arty shots of nude women.
  3. 63
    Scruffy, loosely structured and piercingly perceptive about the ways in which technology that supposedly brings people together actually keeps them apart.

    Authentic in texture if narrow in scope, LOL is a movie about the way we live -- or rather about the way white, urban, heterosexual circuit boys are failing to live.
  5. 50
    The characters are a bit too OCD for LOL to work as the definitive commentary on technology and human relationships that it strives to be...But the movie is unusually attentive to the ironies of communications technology.

    One of the worst films I have ever seen. Horrid cast, cheapscape plot and even worse scenes. I can't tell you how bad it is!

    Critics high as **** Giving this movie good reviews and **** In short: This movie is like getting your brain ass raped by an albino gorilla giraffe monkey. Ive never seen a movie as bad as this. Except maybe that holocaust one... and Twilight. If your girlfriend wants you to go see it, ritually sacrifice her to satan to absolve her sins. Collapse
