Longest 96-minute movie ever made. Pointless. Enough said.

The New York Times
A well-acted, smartly directed film that's depressing because it could have amounted to so much more. It departs from the studio-financed romantic-comedy template in just one, unfortunately fatal respect: it makes a point of pride out of rejecting clich, then swoons into its embrace. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
If Broken English occasionally falls prey to a bit too much self-conscious lethargy, it's still a welcome chance to see Posey at her flighty, edgy best. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
A wry, charming romance about a New York woman who has given up hope of finding love. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
As a director, Cassavetes is a keen observer of character and social interaction but not yet much of a visual stylist (which might also describe the improvisational dramas made by her actor/director father, John). Full Review
Dennis Harvey
A pitch-perfect lead performance by Parker Posey and debuting feature writer-helmer Zoe Cassavetes' deft, low-key approach raise Broken English a couple notches above the usual run of lonely-single-woman-seeking-romance-in-the-big-city yarns. Full Review
