Whether trodding the boards for paying audiences or performing at the kitchen table for her theatrical family (mother Diane Salinger, father Jack Heller, uncle David Proval, boarder Harriet Schock) the only place Pandora Isaacs (Tanna Frederick) has ever felt truly safe and entirely at home is onstage.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"George ... disdains working on TV or in dinner theater. Compared to this movie, however, these would be preferable alternatives."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"Though Jaglom intends for us to be charmed by show folk, the amateurish performances and perennially misjudged direction wind up portraying them instead as boundlessly needy narcissists."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Self-indulgent drama in which braying actors spout utter twaddle about the Thea-tah."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"You will either laugh or cringe, depending on your enjoyment of comic melodrama (the kind view) or distaste for overindulged actors (the not-so-kind view)."
‑ David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
"The boldness is welcome, the execution awkward."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"Henry Jaglom applies what must by now qualify as a tradition of pointless agitation to the disruption of theater. Unsurprisingly, the results are disastrous."
‑ Calum Marsh, Slant Magazine
"Altogether, it comes to resemble theater filmed by Paul Greengrass."
‑ Michael Nordine, Village Voice
"Self-consciously cribbing from Chekhov by way of Robert Altman, the filmmaker convenes an extended family of stage actors at a decaying country house in New Rochelle, where the Ambien-enhanced emotional pitch lingers north of perpetual hysteria."
‑ Sam Adams, Time Out New York
"If you want a fly-on-the-wall view into the private lives of theatre royalty, 'Just 45 Minutes from Broadway' is the movie for you."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
