Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's all rather familiar and sitcomy. But its silliness is its salvation."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"The actors attack their roles with a lot of energy, and the story moves along at a brisk pace. That's a big plus, because if it ever slowed down, we'd have too much time to think about how silly it is."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Light as flan, Km.O is a hopeful kindred spirit to other insouciant Spanish comedies."
‑ Kent Turner,
"The movie treats all its characters kindly -- especially in moments where it would be easy to go for the cheap shot -- but there's either not enough froth or meat on its bones to sate the appetite."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Such interesting people and fabulous surprises - it almost makes you want to go to KM. 0 at 6 just to see who you might bump into."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"Offers a liberating glimpse at a society that's full of hope."
‑ Charles Ealy, Dallas Morning News
"One shallow film, that quickly returns to where it started: Zero."
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"One could easily argue that there are enough tangled plotlines here for several interesting films."
‑ Don Willmott,
"The stories don't resonate, the film has a drab look and feel, and it lacks the passionate zing with which the least of Almodovar's works teems."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
"Just one more of those romantic roundelays that depend too heavily on hopeless coincidence and contrivance to reach a happy ending."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Sexy, bold, exotic and fun in some ways, but still stuck with a lackluster style and pedestrian plot that brand it as everyday entertainment fare."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"The writer-director team of Juan Luis Iborra and Yolanda Garcia Serrano stage the lunacy like a season's worth of Spanish TV sitcoms strung together into a single feature."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
""Km. 0" could be called "Sex Actually.""
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"It's a formula picture that will succeed or fail on the freshness of the details, and Kilometer Zero is a mixed bag."
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"The plot is contrived, the coincidences abound, but that does not diminish the nice, easy moments in this delightful free-spirited Midsummer's Night-like sex romp."
‑ Marcy Dermansky,
