Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Extremely funny, ultra-hip and alarmingly insightful."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"In Albert Brooks' second comedy, which is both funny and irritating (some of it by design), he plays a nuerotic film editor who's unable to sustain a normal relationship"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Modern Romance explores the dangers of possessive love."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Brooks brings his inimitable brand of dry comedy to this look at the world f relationships."
‑ , Film4
"An early-career winner from Albert Brooks."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"The first part of the film is farcical and very funny."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Nearly as much as Jerry Lewis, Albert Brooks's comic persona is defined by its unlikability."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, Slant Magazine
"Brooks can be very funny, but sometimes his whining mutes the laughs."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"Not Brooks at his best, but still amusing"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"There's little to nothing funny about this."
‑ Greg Muskewitz,
"Ends up more insightful than funny."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"makes the repetition and relative tameness of the primary plot seem all the more obvious"
‑ Christopher Null,
"Another obsessive classic from Albert Brooks"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"Yet another Albert Brooks film. Why?"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
