Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The actors are on their game, with Long digging deeper than he's usually asked to, and Wood showing more restraint than she often does."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"While this unrelentingly midtempo movie milks Brooklyn for its chic, it manages to denude it of its color."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"If the movie managed to inspire even an iota of investment in whether or not Sam and Birdie (ugh) would end up together, I'd call it a perfectly adequate date night rental. But it's too insubstantial for that."
‑ Dan Schindel, Movie Mezzanine
"Its third act conflict and resolution all seem motivated not by the characters on screen chafing at change, growth or surrender, but instead by scenes from other movies."
‑ Brent Simon, Paste Magazine
"By keeping their goals modest the filmmakers have given us a pleasant-enough romantic comedy."
‑ Leonard Maltin, Leonard Maltin's Picks
"A Case Of You's characters and plot points will be familiar to anyone who's seen a movie in which a neurotic urbanite pines for a beautiful girl."
‑ Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club
"A Case of You is a disappointing romantic comedy that aspires to social relevance until the third act, when it settles for pat Freudian revelations."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Village Voice
"A winning romantic comedy..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Simply not enough happens, and the screenwriters might have been wise to add a subsidiary relationship plotline to the mix, focus more on Sam's attempts at more serious writing, or just give those hungry, generous and funny actor pals more to do."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Long and Wood are delightful to watch and have great chemistry, and on the whole, the film is, despite my better judgement, quite enjoyable."
‑ Caitlin Hughes, Film School Rejects
""A Case of You" is perfectly enjoyable as far as indie rom coms go - just not particularly original."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times
"Wood makes Birdie approachable enough that Sam's continuing treatment of her as a fantasy-girl, who could only like a fictionalized version of him, grows tiresome as the film progresses."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Some jokes land as intended, and there's a weirdly star-studded supporting cast, but Corio isn't brave enough to make the movie matter, eventually submitting to painfully labored formula to land this underwhelming effort."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"As contemporary romantic comedies go, it's by no means an embarrassment, ranging from politely bland at its worst to very nearly inspired at its best."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, The Dissolve
"Kat Coiro's film takes the comedy of discomfort to new levels of cringe-worthiness by presenting."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
