Slant Magazine
A feigned attempt at a stereotypically quirky indie film that has virtually nothing in the way of formal sophistication or narrative ambition. Full Review
Ernest Hardy
Village Voice
Full of familiar tropes, exhausted rhythms, self-conscious references to genre forebears...Language of a Broken Heart, directed by Rocky Powell from a screenplay by Juddy Talt, is pure product. Full Review
Farran Smith Nehme
New York Post
Part of the limp-rag ambience is due to Talt, who seems to be channeling Sarah Jessica Parker — which, unsurprisingly, does not work. Mostly it’s due to the script, which fails to meet the major romantic-comedy requirement of being clever about keeping lovers apart. All by itself, “The hero is kind of a drip” doesn’t cut it.

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. Full Review
Glenn Whipp
Los Angeles Times
The film, directed by first-timer Rocky Powell, has a different happy ending in mind, one that adheres to rom-com formulas in a manner that should give it a second life on basic cable. Just don't expect to fall hard for it. Full Review
