Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A quiet, serious comedy about marriage, parenthood and the everyday strains of bringing up a rambunctious toddler while struggling to sustain a creative life.
Fresh: Swanberg's naturalistic, improvised style lets the conflict come about organically, repeatedly putting the characters in situations to which they could react with cliches but instead go with something more empathetic and nuanced.
Fresh: A subtle, witty, wise and deeply compassionate American movie.
Rotten: Mr. Swanberg is not a total amateur, but he is called "a doodler" for obvious reasons, all of them on red alert here.
I stayed up until midnight to buy this movie, and it was everything and more than I expected. The storyline is intricate with unexpected twists, and Anna Kendrick has some killer one-liners. The fact that this movie was improv makes it that much more impressive. Every one of these actors were perfect for their role. Five stars.
Swanbergs impeccable style shines again
Swanbergs mumble core style brings cheesy movie dialogue to its death. After seeing a film with such real relatable characters it will be hard to go back to seeing films not in this style.
sweet, charming, heartwarming, funny
This is a lovely film, and Anna K is a scene stealer as always. Also a really nice Lena Dunham cameo. I was a fan of this director's last movie Drinking Buddies and i think that if you liked that one, you'll like this too.
