Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Surely some of the young woman's porn videos would make better viewing."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"As irritatingly monosyllabic as its characters, this indie 'romance' -- the quote marks aren't an accident -- feels over-workshopped and false at almost every point."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Instead of embodying the fun and spirited fluff that a rom com should be, this film just grinds its teeth through the process."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"One of the weakest competition entries at Sundance Fest this year, this pseudo romantic-erotic feature promises more than it can deliver, and after a cute beginning falls apart."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Marianne Palka's comedy, which she wrote and stars in, lacks the script, acting and the laughs to rise in the marketplace above similar Sundance-style fare, despite the sado-masochistic streak."
‑ David D'Arcy, Screen International
"Alternately compelling and dramatically limp, the film scores points for exploring unfamiliar territory but lacks the emotional depth to make some very strange behavior believable."
‑ James Greenberg, Hollywood Reporter
"Dysfunction beguiles in Good Dick, a perverse romantic comedy whose coarse title belies its tender heart."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"A weird love story between two damaged souls."
‑ Don Groves,
"In another movie, the boy who pursues this girl would be a serial killer."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters
"The independently minded have spirits to aflame."
‑ Jonathan W. Hickman, Entertainment Insiders
"A short and sweet anti-romantic comedy, Good Dick puts together a heav ily depressed young woman with a homeless clerk who rents her porn at a Los Angeles video store."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Ultimately, the body part that gets the most play is the mouth, with the hyphenate and her personal-professional partner Ritter trading the sort of sub-Cassavetes banter that screams self-written acting exercises."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"...a lot more poignant than most of Hollywood's big-budget, star-studded takes on the subject."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"All of the most annoying elements of independent cinema are on full display in Good Dick, a painfully awkward attempt at...well, I'm not sure what exactly."
‑ Ethan Alter, Giant Magazine
"Good Dick manages to be a squirmily charming romantic movie, chockablock with surprising details."
‑ Mark Peikert, New York Press
