    It is crystal clear who screwed up this tortuously slow-moving romantic drama. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    At its best, the film is undeniably tender. Sweet, even. show more

    James Greenberg The Hollywood Reporter

    Alternately compelling and dramatically limp, the film scores points for exploring unfamiliar territory but lacks the emotional depth to make some very strange behavior believable. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    This unlikely micro-budgeted project is written and directed by Marianna Palka, who also plays the female lead. The guy is portrayed by her real-life boyfriend, Jason Ritter (son of the late John). Their performances are quite remarkable and their chemistry is palpable, even if Good Dick is primarily intended for more adventurous moviegoers. show more

    In the vast wasteland of romantic comedies, this lovely film defies the tired genre. show more

    L.A. Weekly

    It feels provocative but inconclusive -- brimming with intriguing ideas about love's dark underbelly but not quite confident enough to pull them off. show more

    Todd McCarthy Variety

    An annoying example of self-therapy posing as art. show more
