Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's funny, clunky, earnest, and barely credible, but it's all of a piece."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
""Are You Here" doesn't feel all there."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"The movie is the cinematic equivalent of dead air."
‑ Robert Levin, amNewYork
"What does surprise is that the talented ensemble has to cajole this ungainly movie along even as it changes its mind about whether it wants to be a romantic comedy, a lighthearted bromance."
‑ Nathalie Atkinson, National Post
"Flawed friendship dramedy has plenty of drugs, some sex."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Everything about Are You Here feels like a bottom-drawer script idea that was put together too casually and carelessly."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
""Are You Here" proves a gently immersive, ingratiating, often witty character comedy with a pair of comfortably effective lead performances."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"The film struggles to find a consistent tone between its attempts at broad stoner comedy, fractured family quirks and a more serious examination of mental illness."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"Proof that genius doesn't always successfully translate from one medium to another."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"This is one of those semi-serious projects comedians occasionally step into, wanting to stretch and winding up straining."
‑ Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times
"Are You Here lacks more than just the question mark that should go on its title. It lacks a point-of-view that makes sense, that feels central."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"[An] endearing muddle, which flails in search of an identity."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
"In the end, Are You Here isn't quite funny enough to be a comedy, nor does it take itself seriously enough to be a drama. I would say that it's a dramedy, but the tone is so erratic that it doesn't really fit in that category either."
‑ Max Nicholson, IGN Movies
"Surely the characters on Mad Men aren't as one-note as these otherwise a petition should be started to have Weiner's Emmys forcibly removed."
‑ Travis Hopson,
"A comedy with no laughs. A drama disconnected from any known reality."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna,
