Wesley Morris Boston Globe
This is a manic hour and a half. It's full of pushy, grabby, assertive, borderline obnoxious characters, not all of whom went to Harvard. show more
The film, in its defense, is far too vacuous to be accused of having any kind of agenda--it just happens to get its politics wrong along with everything else. show more

Losing Control has a vague cheerfulness but no real snap or insight, with Weiss apparently thinking that using scientific terminology to discuss relationships is witty rather than contrived. Perhaps investigating something new would have better served Weiss than simply looking to her own experiences, exploring rather than settling. show more

Last night a friend and I went to see the movie Losing Control. A funny, sweet movie that keeps you asking for more. A driven young scientist learns the lesson that life is not a science lab and not everything has a scientific explanation, especially love. Not 100% \"chick flick\" so the men will enjoy it too.
