Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writer-director Olnek... deftly parodies the myriad tropes of low-budget sci-fi with obvious glee, from the alien's monotonal speech to wobbly camera-handling and cheesy special effects."
‑ Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
"The played-out scenarios in Olnek's first feature, such as Jane's sessions with her therapist, are soon outnumbered by inspired silliness, like tears shed over a revolving dessert tray in a diner."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"... a fun parody of 1950s black-and-white sci-fi flicks with a sweet love story at its heart."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl
"Olnek's sensibility is singular, and the work of the cast -- notably the sweetfaced Haas and the hilariously robotic Ziegler -- make for a movie that seeks, and earns, affection."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"With an ear for dialogue as sharp as her aliens looking for love in all the wrong spaces, director Madeleine Olneck hits the mark with this send-up of lesbian dating culture (alienation, get it?) packaged as a B-movie spoof."
‑ , Philadelphia Weekly
"Madeleine Olnek has a limited repertoire of jokes, so it's fortunate that the film, at 76 minutes, is fairly amusing, even if it's never quite laugh-out-loud funny."
‑ Jaime N. Christley, Slant Magazine
"Ed Wood would have been proud."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"On a budget that could barely get you on the subway, Madeleine Olnek gets laughs and style out of interplanetary love."
‑ David D'Arcy, Screen International
""Straight" from Sundance, CLSASS might just be the most hilarious film of 2011."
‑ Brandon Judell, CultureCatch
