Ratings & Reviews

  • There's a sense of life to Committed that's unpredictable and sweet, but too much of it is cluttered with lazy shortcuts.

  • Krueger's comedy doesn't always spark, but its underlying intelligence - not to mention Graham's eyes - shines through.

  • It's a one-joke premise that ultimately wears thin, but Krueger works some playful variations on a theme.
