Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Nesting" is a sitcom, but a really slow and dull one that barely grinds out 22 minutes' worth of plot to fill a 90-minute hole."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
""Nesting" takes an old idea and tosses in a few today-sounding phrases in hopes of coming up with a fresh-feeling movie. But that isn't enough."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Neither the characters nor the dialogue feel authentic."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
""Nesting" deals with an evergreen question, grappling with aging, maturity, responsibility. Unfortunately, the person doing that grappling is so lax he doesn't seem worth knowing."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Chuldenko doesn't aspire to hard realism, but a lifestyle comedy with hard-to-buy fundamentals and a central couple you can't invest in is a dubious proposition nonetheless."
‑ Benjamin Mercer, Village Voice
"A bittersweet, fitfully engaging film which benefits from appealing leads and an original focus, Nesting ultimately doesn't elicit a deep enough audience identification to rise above the level of bohemian curio."
‑ Brent Simon,
"Writer-director John Chuldenko stretches a sitcom episode premise to feature-length breaking point in "Nesting.""
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"The script unfortunately suffers from its own case of arrested development, barely getting out of the gate before stalling, and never building enough laughs or narrative impetus to justify feature length."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"The way Nesting goes out of its way to tell us where it's set is symptomatic of the film in general."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
