Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lots of attitude, little accomplishment."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Charlie is unbearably and unintentionally obnoxious. I guess we are supposed to see some devilish charisma or glamour or wit, but he is just a tiresome prat."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"It's a trip you'll be reluctant to take twice, but as a singular vision Charlie Casanova demands a second look."
‑ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
"This relentlessly one-note, indigestibly overwritten picture duplicates the experience of being trapped in a train carriage with a bore who's spent too much time at the drinks trolley."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"An opinionated motormouth reveals sociopathic tendencies in an Irish micro-budgeter that's the very definition of a hard slog."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
"In this low-budget Irish tale Charlie Barnham (Emmett Scanlan) is a loathsome psychopath who regards the rest of humanity with sneering contempt."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Sad, shallow, boring people doing unpleasant things, Charlie Casanova is the cinematic equivalent of a night on the gin."
