    Lola is, in other words, a believable heroine for our times.

    It's one girl against the world in Lola Versus, a snappy yet sincere romantic comedy that begins where others end, with the proposal and wedding plans pointing toward happily ever after.

    At 24 minutes, Lola Versus might be a middling episode of a sitcom like "New Girl." At 87 minutes, it is a gracefully aimed arrow shot in the air. Where it lands, Wein and Lister Jones know not where.

    A well-intentioned indie that tries to be a "real" version of a Hollywood romantic comedy and ends up feeling more ersatz than ever.

    What's translated to film feels like a rough draft, with bullet points at beginning and end, demarcating Lola lost, Lola found. And in the middle? A vast, vague maw.

    Take Lola Versus, a Greta Gerwig vehicle that feels like a pilot awaiting pick-up from a network that doesn't exist.

    A year in the life of a young woman unhappy in love and uncertain in career, Lola Versus could easily be faulted for the narrowness of its worldview.

    Lola Versus, great movie, but have some little problems. The trama is great, but have a bad development, and in some parts the movie is boring. The performances are cool, but not are the better point of this movie. Lola Versus is good. Expand

    Definitely plays to the female demo, but not a bad movie for a guy to earn points from watching it with that special someone. Great opening, but other than the soundtrack, nothing stood out. Standard good performance from Greta Gerwig and some nice supporting roles, but a bland though sometimes entertaining indie. Expand

    Not a very good movie. It doesn't really go any where, and when it ends you fell like you wasted an hour and a half of your life. Pretty slow and boring, not very funny or romantic it's really just a bland movie. There were a few laughs but very far apart. There wasn't any bad acting but nothing special. I got the feeling like they were trying to emulate HBO's Girls in the tone and the dialogue, but it just comes off as unfunny. Don't bother with this movie. 3/10 Expand
