    Nothing terribly special here, but perfectly played and a spiritual cousin to such early ’90s indies as “Naked in New York” and “Ed’s Next Move.” show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    The film lacks the originality or wit to differentiate it from the countless other indie romantic comedies littering our screens. show more

    Mary Houlihan Chicago Sun-Times

    Language of a Broken Heart has the Lifetime Network written all over it. It’s a fitting entry for that venue but as a theatrical feature, it’s simply not up to the task. show more
