Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The aptly named Standing Still, about postcollegiate 20-somethings, has the dramatic momentum of a daisy-picking toddler.
Rotten: Surfing the crowd in Altman-lite style, pic skims the surface entertainingly but goes limp in its stabs at seriousness.
Rotten: Standing Still wants to be an honest, earnest look at the difficulties of growing up and moving on, but it remains stuck in such a fantasy-laden milieu that the characters never feel particularly real, and their problems seem phony and arbitrary.
Fresh: This is a hit and miss romantic comedy with a few solid laughs and some pretty smart dialogue.
