    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Westby's nervy story is like "Desperately Seeking Susan" played straight. Let's hope O'Grady's next film meets this one's potential. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Rid of Me is a ragged film that doesn't always work. Beyond just the midpoint shift, it does seem frequently uneven tonally. show more

    O'Grady is very good, but she can't make the hard-to-watch Rid of Me dramatically credible. show more

    Andrew Schenker Slant Magazine

    At once hopelessly amateurish and given to desperate assertions of auterist "virtuosity." show more

    Bracingly original, alarming and droll, the righteously ribald Rid of Me should prove a breakthrough for helmer James Westby and his producer and leading lady, Katie O'Grady. show more

    Nick Pinkerton Village Voice

    Rid of Me is a bad movie, but at least it's a flailing, innocent badness. show more
