    Beautifully acted, it's a tender love story with one or two belly laughs.

    Both emotionally charged and at times extremely funny, with humor emerging naturally from the characters' predicaments, Meet Monica Velour has the feel-good factor without comprising its ideals.

    The effectively deglamorized Cattrall is terrific, investing her portrayal with a complex mixture of vulnerability, toughness and still-powerful sexuality.

    Poor Cattrall is caught in a script that, much like the white teddy, is an impossibly tight squeeze, obliging her to hit the farcical laughs while still playing the cellulite realism.

    The role of a former star of the "golden age" of porn sounds perfect for Kim Cattrall, and she handles it nicely - at least, in the rare moments when this indie comedy isn't terminally contrived.

    A road trip into the heart of that bumpiest of territories, the adolescent id.

    In some ways this film's biggest failing is that it can't decide who's story it is telling.

    It's definitely worth seeing for Ms. Cattrall. This gal can really act.

    The result is unbalanced by cartoonish flourishes-Ingram's performance being the chief offender-that overpower Cattrall's subtler character work.

    The deepest chord is hit by Cattrall, who almost manages to wipe away the memory of "Sex and the City 2."

    Extremely low budget Indie about a teenager in love with an aged former porn star. While occasionally reminiscent of Napoleon Dynamite, "MeetExtremely low budget Indie about a teenager in love with an aged former porn star. While occasionally reminiscent of Napoleon Dynamite, "Meet Monica Velour" is much more serious, even in its dark humor. While it isn't a bad movie, it isn't particularly good either. The performance of Kim Cattrall is actually pretty good and a welcome change from her "Sex and the City" typecast she's been saddled with the past decade. Yeah, this film may not seem like much of a departure from the type of character she's been playing for a long time, but it did give her a chance to be more raw and serious. Definitely worth watching at least once. Full Review »
