    Walter Addiego San Francisco Chronicle

    Don't fault Thirlby, who does as much as she can with the material. Krasinski is pretty good, and DeWitt and Ennenga are outstanding. The direction is decent, and the film is handsome. But it's finally frustrating, enigmatic in a way that suggests emptiness more than mystery. show more

    It's a naive example of the transformative powers of a 23-year-old let loose amongst the dullards. Whoa. show more

    A film in which everyone is lusting after the wrong person, and consummating those desires tends to lead to awkward - but not funny, unlike Dunham's usual projects - disasters of various scales. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Proves to be unsatisfactory because it establishes a well-defined group of characters and shows them disrupted by the careless behavior of a tiresome young woman and two adults who allow themselves to be motivated in one way or another by her infectious libido. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Sensitively written, nicely shot, expertly acted, and intelligently ambiguous, Nobody Walks still manages to send you out with a shrug. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    A good-looking but anecdotally slight dramedy about life and lifestyles in Los Angeles's hip Silver Lake district. show more

    The whole thing comes out feeling kind of featureless, beaten flat by its own sense of fairness. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    None of Dunham's humor comes across, except when someone says, "And when you speak, your words are snakes I swat at with swords," which is hilarious, but not intentionally. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    The actors are all completely wasted in this dumb travesty of fumbling, unfocused, oversexed numbskulls who work in the movie business. Everyone connected with Nobody Walks should have done just that-early and quickly. show more

    Time Out New York

    For a film about sexual conquest, Nobody Walks is a frustratingly flaccid affair. show more

    What a horrible movie. I hated all of the characters. Are we supposed to think that all LA residents and New Yorkers are so cool and above us that they can fornicate on screen and we will stand up and applaud? Young artsy type gets in from New York and lodges in a communal type house to get help on the sound for her art move (bugs). Before she even gets out of the airport parking lot she almost has sex. Goes to communal house works a little on the move, fornicates with man of the house, and fornicates with his assistant pisses off the wife of the house and the daughter who has the hots for the assistant. Little wifey finds out about fornication, tells man of the house to get rid of little miss fornicator. She leaves. I don’t know who green lit this piece of tripe but they should be summarily execute
