Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"LOLA VERSUS puts the fun in dysfunctional love and is what happens when you shake life up a little bit and let it fall out of your hands."
‑ Chase Whale,
"Lola Versus is all Greta all the time, a bonanza for fans and proof that Gerwig's easy offbeat charm, obvious smarts and physical comedy gifts can carry a film."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"I didn't dislike this movie because I'm a man. I generally disliked this movie because I felt the main character was a bit pathetic."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"So awesome, universe! The world hasn't been full enough yet of movies about women who are almost totally obsessed almost exclusively with romance that we cannot use one more of them. Hoorah!"
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"The producer, Michael London, has been associated with some rather good films, but this is not one of them."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"It's such a mopey, navel-gazing affair that even Gerwig has a hard time saving it."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"There's a Fitzgeraldian sense of generational malaise in all of this, but "Lola Versus" is convinced that it's hilarious."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Lola Versus has plenty of potential, but with a script that has absolutely no handle on its lead character, the experience quickly becomes unbearably frustrating."
‑ Jonathan Lack, We Got This Covered
"There's a distinct lack of individuality and insight and, appositely enough, if Lola Versus is about a woman floundering, as a film it can be accused of the same."
‑ Emma Simmonds, The List
"It doesn't always succeed but this sometimes affecting, sometimes darkly funny film is perfect sofa fodder for anyone nursing a broken heart."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"An extremely smart, exquisitely funny film about finding yourself amid the clang and clutter of contemporary life."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"It's a wonder Gerwig manages to keep the character endearing instead of grating, but she does."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"More enjoyable than it ought to be."
‑ Erick Weber, NECN
"[An] hour and a half of wearisome quirk and smut..."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Gerwig's dreamy style worked in Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress, because the movie created an eco-system of oddity in which that style could thrive. But here it just grates."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
