Liza Johnson makes fine, steady progress with this delicate and absorbing character study starring Kristen Wiig.
David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
The degree to which Hateship Loveship consistently meanders is nothing short of infuriating...
Tim Grierson, Paste Magazine
The movie (and Wiig's performance) proves to be a misfire -- a quirky, intriguing one, but a misfire all the same.
Kevin Jagernauth, The Playlist
It's a tale of two women...coming of age, an observation on the scars left by loss, and an examination of a variety of characters who strive to live beyond the judgements and low expectations placed on them.
Chris Michael, Guardian [UK]
Like the world's longest advertisement for cleaning products, Hateship Loveship might well have come with the tagline: scrub your way to a better life.
Darren Ruecker, We Got This Covered
The unique performance skills of Kristen Wiig prove to be as well-suited to a strange little drama like Hateship Loveship as they are to her beloved comedy.
David D'Arcy, Screen International
Kristen Wiig is a revelation as a timid love-deprived victim who turns a tawdry prank into an opportunity.
