    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Lister is quite funny and engaging. It's just too bad that some of that screenwriting wit couldn't have been shared with the movie's protagonist. show more

    At 24 minutes, Lola Versus might be a middling episode of a sitcom like "New Girl." At 87 minutes, it is a gracefully aimed arrow shot in the air. Where it lands, Wein and Lister Jones know not where. show more

    Don't be fooled by the indie trappings: despite its downtown vibe, Lola Versus is as clichéd as any Hollywood rom-com. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    Convincing in its depiction of late-20s romantic anxiety (if not of that age bracket's real estate realities), it is broadly appealing without bowing too deeply to formula. show more

    Connie Ogle Miami Herald

    This is a movie that manages to be light and funny and still transcend age, background and culture to treat with compassion our ability to behave in our own worst interests and still nurture hope for the future. show more

    Gerwig transforms the ordinary screenplay into something that is by turns charming, touching, and funny. show more

    New York Post

    Lola Versus, like Lena Dunham's show "Girls," brings an indie perspective and cast to this mainstream genre. In the more limited medium of film, this is a mixed bag. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    A well-intentioned indie that tries to be a "real" version of a Hollywood romantic comedy and ends up feeling more ersatz than ever. show more

    Jennie Punter The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Lola Versus is all Greta all the time, a bonanza for fans and proof that Gerwig's easy offbeat charm, obvious smarts and physical comedy gifts can carry a film. show more

    Gerwig remains one of the most captivating new stars to hit the big screen, but she's still looking for a movie that deserves her. show more

    Why can't Hollywood make good movies anymore? Everything I have heard or seen lately is complete garbage don't they know how to write a script anymore?
