    A wretched comedy about middle-aged romance. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    However insulting the script is to the formidable talents of Clayburgh and Tambor, they turn in Shinola performances. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The opening of writer-director Eric Schaeffer's sloppy, sporadically funny adult sex comedy Never Again shows how an undisciplined filmmaker can sabotage his best intentions. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Here's a case of two actors who do everything humanly possible to create characters who are sweet and believable, and are defeated by a screenplay that forces them into bizarre, implausible behavior. show more

    Janice Page Boston Globe

    There are moments, too, where the forced hipness falls aside and the two lead characters just plain relate, realistically and maturely, with a seasoned playfulness that is truly charming. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A good-natured but trivial Manhattan romantic comedy. show more

    Connie Ogle Miami Herald

    The germ of a better film lies in that joke, but Schaeffer doesn't quite dig it out. Instead, we get painfully unfunny scenes that make us think that when it comes to writing comedy, Schaeffer should stick to his own rule: never again. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    Clayburgh is the most dignified thing about this dreadfully overwrought, often preposterous romantic comedy. show more

    Ray Conlogue The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Rarely does a film so graceless and devoid of merit as this one come along. show more

    Film Threat

    By turns touching, raucously amusing, uncomfortable, and, yes, even sexy, Never Again is a welcome and heartwarming addition to the romantic comedy genre; a pleasant surprise of a film that delivers so much more than its description leads one to expect. show more
