    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    The baby angle is really just a hook on which to hang wry commentary about single life in the city, but Lisecki approaches his subject with obvious affection, and the game cast makes most of the sitcom-silly antics work. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Gayby doesn't break a lot of new ground in the rom-com or parenthood fields, but its agreeable balance of humor and sentiment makes it worth adopting. show more

    While Jonathan Lisecki is well in tune with his film's niche market, his knack for comedy, both visual and verbal, is universally hilarious. show more

    Sara Stewart New York Post

    Harris, a talented comic actress who looks more like a real person than a Hollywood facsimile of one, makes every scene she's in shine. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    Although it traffics freely in stereotypes and sitcom-style one-liners, Gayby is never less than likable. show more

    Melissa Anderson Village Voice

    Making a kid "the old-fashioned way" becomes the plot engine for the second time this year - after Jennifer Westfeldt's "Friends With Kids" - in Gayby, a comedy that, much like the perfunctory p-in-the-v it depicts, gives about 30 seconds of pleasure before going limp. show more

    Rachel Saltz The New York Times

    Inoffensive and low-key, Gayby is too diffuse to have much pop when it comes to the topics at hand: love and friendship, and how unconventional modern permutations might help rewrite the script of romance. show more
