    Aggressively derivative though The Longest Week is, however, it’s clearly the work not of a lazy thief, but of a raw talent who’s still struggling to find his own voice. In the meantime, his impressions are pretty darn impressive.

    The considerable charms of Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde get a considered workout in the lightly charming New York romance The Longest Week. It’s a droll comedy, with a droll narration.

    A blithely derivative romantic comedy that isn’t without a certain smug charm.

    Just like the character of Conrad, the movie coasts on confidence without ever proving it has a soul.

    Lacking any significant character arc or motivation, The Longest Week is little more than a series of insipid conversations between bored aristocrats who snark at each other in monotone.

    Not even the able actors that Glanz somehow managed to rope into his project can do much with the draggy story and the vapid characters that they have been given to play.

    The film’s constant nods to the artificiality of its narrative highlight its precious, cloying phoniness rather than subvert it.
