Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Annie Hall homage Burning Annie is a thoroughly professional comedy, well paced, attractively photographed and smartly acted."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times
"Ordynans's exceptionally canny script nails how thoroughly pop culture has colonized our sentiments, and the necessity of those little emotional revolutions required to overthrow its reign."
‑ Nathan Lee, Village Voice
"The movie has its moments of comedic brilliance -- just not quite enough of them."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Burning Annie has funny moments, but it suffers from an overflow of characters."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"For all the shallowly witty banter, Max and company are even less interesting than Annie and Alvy."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Pic relies on nerdy world-weary irony to carry the day, but doesn't convincingly draw its characters."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Even with a look at many of these people's relationship problems, there's nothing remotely interesting to listen to when they talk."
‑ Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat
