This movie didn't really make any sense or leave any lasting impression on me.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Its so honest and unpretentious. Sometimes we need a good slap of reality. Good Movie- enjoy it.

A movie that was partly good, your average teen movie with good stars like Emma Roberts but I felt bored because it was just too averqage. I'm out!

Facile, formulaic and utterly charm-free. Full Review

There is also much in The Art of Getting By that is worth praising, and if you can grade on a curve - setting the standard at "The Wackness" rather than "The Squid and the Whale" - you may find yourself touched, tickled and occasionally surprised. Full Review

The movie turns lighter and less morose as it rolls along, which is good for viewers who prefer a bit of honey to offset the bitter taste of hormones. Full Review

Though it doesn't fully resonate as a romance, it is effective as a character study. Full Review

Well-meaning but dreadfully executed movie. Full Review
