    The cast is more than game. DeWitt's Abby is earnest and searching and a little bit nuts, but we're never encouraged to see her as dumb, credulous or pathetic.

    Touchy Feely is minor, but these people are good company.

    Lynn Shelton crafts a film of astonishingly sustained mood, tying its beguiling atmosphere to the mental states of her characters.

    Laughs come less frequently here than in Humpday and Your Sister's Sister, but the writer-director's empathy for floundering characters is intact.

    There's a great movie somewhere inside Touchy Feely desperately trying to swim to the surface, but its obscurity also comes with an inarticulateness that robs it of its potential.

    Touchy Feely seems poised to explore the same issues of embarrassing intimacy Shelton mined in her two last films, Humpday and Your Sister’s Sister. But here there’s a new fantastical element, the kind of magical device that might pop up in a minor Woody Allen film.

    In the days since, I have found myself thinking about these characters at unexpected moments. Maybe the film, like its characters, just needs a little time to grow on you.

A pointless movie in which neither the viewer nor the characters appear to know what is going on. It certainly doesn't help when the movie is extremely boring with no sense of direction.

Besides being absolutely terrible, theAside from a few movies that aren't worth mentioning, Touchy Feely has the worst script this year. Besides being absolutely terrible, the movie is painfully boring. The characters are horrible, the pace is irritating and the movie takes the phrase "I don't know" to a new level. A complete disaster of a film. Full Review »
