Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"By the end of it, you'll wish you had just stayed home and watched Total Request Live."
‑ Ken Switzer, Village Voice
"Happily the filmmakers here are more interested in its people and their lives than in the chase that follows."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"It's a good thing people finally recognized Selma Blair's talent so she could stop making movies like this."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"Dana Lustig has taken a fairly heavy-handed approach, treating the material as if it were the basis of a longform music video ..."
‑ Ted Murphy,
"This predictable romance caper is utterly charmless and whiny."
‑ , E! Online
"Badly employing all kinds of tricks ... [Lustig] ultimately overpowers her actors and does in her own film."
‑ Kevin Maynard, Mr. Showbiz
"The kind of quirky film the movie world could use more of in these days of cookie-cutter studio pictures."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"...about an hour after it's over, you'll barely remember what it was about."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Plausibility is a problem with this would-be-giddy antic about newfound lovers on the lam."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"Screenplay gets the job done provided viewers are in the proper frame of mind to accept it as a romantic-fantasy trifle, with only the most tenuous connection to reality."
‑ Michael Tunison, Boxoffice Magazine
"An edgy, energetic romantic thriller."
‑ Lael Loewenstein, Variety
"The performances in several smaller roles are so mechanical that they lend Kill Me Later the tone of a vanity production."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A long-on-style-short-on-insight mish-mash... the filmmakers trade on credit they haven't earned, hoping you'll fill in the narrative gaps."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"A small film whose virtues are probably best appreciated on tape."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Despite the generally likable characters and the abundance of clever ideas, Lustig mucks it all up with her 'trick' editing."
‑ Andy Klein, New Times
