BOFCA REVIEW ROUNDUP 1/31/14

LABOR DAYLabor Day film still

“Something is lost in the translation, because what’s on screen is not believable for a second. It’s made harder to believe by the acting.” – David Reidel, C-Ville Weekly

“Reitman loves to give us characters we think we know and then show us we don’t know them at all.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“This risible bit of Harlequin romance is one of the silliest films I have ever watched. It’s pompous, self-serious and inadvertently hilarious.” – Sean Burns, Philadelphia City Paper

 

THAT AWKWARD MOMENTAWKWARDMOMENT

“The whole thing has the feel of CHASING AMY-era Kevin Smith, but without the nerdy references and continuity nods that suckered a generation into thinking something interesting was there in the margins.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“A movie that has no spark and doesn’t have the kind of crass wit necessary to make its viewers blush.” – Andrew Crump, Movie Mezzanine

“A lesson for the twenty-somethings who are presumably the target audience. Older viewers may wonder what the fuss is about and much older viewers may start thinking of Maurice Chevalier singing, “I’m Glad I’m Not Young Anymore.” – Daniel Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

GLORIAGLORIA

“Bars. Dancing. Hot sex. Cigarettes. Sounds like a movie that takes place in Miami in the 1980s, but in reality it’s Gloria, a present-day movie about a divorced Chilean woman in her early 50s.” – David Reidel, Santa Fe Reporter

“It’s not so much a day-in-the-life movie – it’s a rhythm-of-life movie.” – Jake Mulligan, EDGE
