    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

    The blue rom-com then takes a frenzied late turn into espionage territory, an attempt to gather momentum that only makes the film more tiresome. show more

    The New York Times

    There are rare flashes of successful humor, as when the film deals with the behavior of jerks and a flustered cabby, but these are not likely to be replicated in the lab. If you want to enjoy watching a confused scientist grappling with life choices, stick with "The Nutty Professor." show more

    Some of Weiss' funniest material gets lost between episodes of outright silliness; to paraphrase Mark Twain's assessment of Richard Wagner, the film is smarter than it looks. show more

    As onscreen professions go, it'd be a nice change of pace, were Miranda Kent not the least credible scientist since Denise Richards donned short shorts to play Dr. Christmas Jones. 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.
