Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For all the profanity and naughty behavior, it has the timid, ingratiating vibe of a television sitcom, sticking to safe and familiar emotional territory.
Fresh: In sweetly calibrated moments ... Landline finds the analog joy it's reaching for.
Fresh: The actors are all terrific: as Ali, Quinn has a radiant wildcat sweetness--there's fragility behind all that hissing. And Slate, with her marvelous, helium-tinged voice, is a pure pleasure to watch.
Fresh: Landline doesn't exploit the retro setting for gimmicky punchlines. Amidst the turmoil of 2017, 1995 feels like a comfortable and quaint world to step back into.
I turned off this movie after 20 minutes of watching it . It made me wonder where all the good movie plots have gone. To me this movie was a waste of time.
When you watch one of those movies you didn't really want to watch because it is almost a reflection of your life, and you're comforted there are people just like you in the world because you know the story is based on a true one.
