About the Movie
Recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable, Danny [Kevin Corrigan] would seem to be the perfect test subject for a definitive look at the relationship between money and happiness. Danny’s well-funded languishing is interrupted by a momentous trip to the local gym, where he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor [Guy Pearce] and irresistibly caustic trainer Kat [Cobie Smulders]. Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professional and personally.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Only toward the end do you realize that the characters have been arranged into a pleasing and familiar romantic-comedy triangle and that you've been watching a beautifully played game of underhand slow-pitch screwball.
Fresh: The rom-com isn't such a lost cause, after all. It was just waiting for someone like indie filmmaker Andrew Bujalski to resuscitate it.
Fresh: Somebody needs to give Andrew Bujalski a TV series. If "Results," his unlikely but delightful new film set in and around an Austin fitness studio run by hard-bodied Guy Pearce, were a TV pilot, I would be hooked on the show already.
Rotten: Writer-director Andrew Bujalski appreciates a grimy basement as much as he does a wide-open highway, and he aims for a slice-of-life tapestry. But he should have simply let Corrigan slouch into nirvana.
Results Critics Mash Up
"The triumph of “Results” is that it pretends to be loose, lazy and lived-in when it’s actually disciplined, hard-working and in almost perfect shape.
Only toward the end do you realize that the characters have been arranged into a pleasing and familiar romantic-comedy triangle and that you’ve been watching a beautifully played game of underhand slow-pitch screwball." A.O. Scott, NY Times
“ENCHANTING - WONDERFULLY ALIVE AND UNPREDICTABLE. Plus it’s funny as hell. Results manages to reinvent the rom-com.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
“A GREAT NEW COMEDY. When Results was over, my eyes were wet - they were tears of severe happiness.” – Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Funny and oddly touching. I was won over by its strong acting and kooky, mellow rhythms.” – Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
“ROMANTIC, HILARIOUS, INTELLIGENT - it has the kind of genuine emotion that is so desperately absent from the rom-com genre.” – Sarah Salovaara, Filmmaker Magazine
“ONE OF THE BEST ROM-COMS OF THE LAST FEW YEARS. One of the most enjoyable comedies of Sundance 2015.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
“A CLEVER DELIGHT – funny and well observed. Smulders is fantastic, Corrigan is hilarious.” – Rodrigo Perez – The Playlist
“One of the strangest and strongest of recent romantic triangles forms in the course of this lyrical, fanatically realistic comedy.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
Funny, incredible performances, and leaves you feeling great after. Not the same everyday romantic comedy and something everyone will enjoy. One of the best films likely to see this year.
A smart, very funny romantic comedy
I loved this film - the chemistry between Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders is great, and Kevin Corrigan is so hilarious. Finally a rom-com that doesn’t talk down to its audience. Check it out!
