  1. A fine example of digital filmmaking, and Weintrob and his co-writer, Andrew Osborne, manage to raise some serious issues regarding the Internet without taking themselves too seriously.

    There's nothing unconventional or daring about On_Line, but considering how cheap it undoubtedly was to make, the acting, writing and direction all stand up pretty well; this is more intelligent and better structured than at least half the Hollywood movies I see.

    The film is hardly profound, but the form perfectly fits the content..
  4. 50
    The film's redeeming feature is that it knows how sad these people are, and finds the correct solution to their problems: They meet in the flesh.
  5. 30
    As the characters mix and mingle, pouring out their tales of woe online and fumbling real-life connections, Weintrob leaves no cliché unturned in getting to root causes of behavior.
  6. 25
    It's really just about a bunch of pathetic losers whiling away the hours with their hands jammed down their pants.
  7. Listless, self-absorbed slackers stare into computer monitors, groan about their lives and moan during cyber sex in On_Line. It makes you wonder, is there is a market for soft-porn movies for lonely geeks? Isn't that what computers are for in the first place?
