  1. 100
    A film that with quiet confidence creates a fragile magic.
  2. 100
    By turns comic and tender, tragic and absurd. But throughout, it gives off what is surely one of the greatest of moviegoing pleasures -- the sense of an artist seeing the world from some private vantage that is as original as it is truthful.
  3. It's a familiar dance, but something only July could invent, a vignette much like her characters: beautiful, flawed, organic--fine alone but better with the others.
  4. The distinction of this lovely, if slightly tentative, debut feature is its willingness to set forth mysteries of the human heart without solving them; everyone's fate stays unsealed.
  5. 75
    Offbeat, daring, and the kind of offering Hollywood will never come close to embracing.
  6. Reviewed by: Scott Foundas
    Brings a fresh perspective to age-old human dilemmas.
  7. 50
    Just creepy and unsavory at moments, but pleased to be so.

    "Delia J. gave it a1: Even more disheatening than this very bad and immature movie, is the lavish reception it's getting here, and that it got from the American media. Blame the school system.... People go through 16 years of education in this country and don't know the rudiments of Western culture and art, or what distinguishes good from bad. Ah, Miranda July, savoir and genuius. The muses are weeping...." is that you, grandpa? Expand

    A refreshing strafe away from straight arrow Hollywood incarnations! I'm not sure what is worse, the reviewers who posted negative reviews not having a clue, or their copycat style of writing, reusing words like "pretentious" and "precious" over and over and over and over. Back and forth. Forever. No wonder your reviews stink, you're copying each other! Expand

    Brilliant, a fun and innovating way of introducing new and controversial concepts that all connect and hold in common the central element of love search. It really makes you think about everything you know and take it to the furthest extreme, twisting it and giving you a whole different perspective of it. Expand

    Sort of watchable, but essentially flawed. Lacking in plot and character development - I didn't realte to any of them. The worst aspect of this film was the pretentiousness, the self-indulgence, trying far to hard to be quirky. It sort of reminded me of the character of "I'm so quirky" Phoebe from Friends. There's being arty and then there's random bollocks. This film falls into the latter category. Expand

    This movie ranks at the top of the worst films I have ever seen! I kept waiting for it to get better but unfortunately it never did. Andy M was right, the movie was boring. Sure it's original, and there is a reason....the world can't take another movie like this! Please Miranda July, in our contemporary world, figure out how to build a time machine so I can get back the 90 minutes I wasted watching this film! Expand
