Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Tambor and Clayburgh make an appealing couple - he's understated and sardonic, she's appealingly manic and energetic. Both deserve better."
‑ Dan Fienberg, L.A. Weekly
"There are enough things that poke out rather boldly from Never Again's modest proportions to keep it verging on interesting. And not all of them are strapped to Jill Clayburgh's waist."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Click to read review"
‑ Michael Dequina,
"This film is just plain awful, despite the efforts of two enormously talented and likable stars who are ultimately done in by an impossible script."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"Both awful and appealing."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"If Never Again is the best film we can get about older adult sexuality, it's no wonder we're not seeing more movies like it."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"Just offbeat enough to keep you interested without coming close to bowling you over."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"Schaeffer has written a clever, plausible, funny, and romantic film."
‑ Wilson Morales,
"When a director deliberately sends his own film down such a well-worn path, you know you're in the presence of a truly bad director."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Schaeffer has crafted a winsomely appealing love story for -- surprise! -- the over-50 set."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"After a while, Never Again gets so busy celebrating ageless virility that it forgets to tell a decent story."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"Clayburgh and Tambor are charming performers; neither of them deserves Eric Schaeffer."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"By turns touching, raucously amusing, uncomfortable, and, yes, even sexy, Never Again is a welcome and heartwarming addition to the romantic comedy genre."
‑ Merle Bertrand, Film Threat
"I never thought I'd say this, but I'd much rather watch teens poking their genitals into fruit pies!"
‑ Blake French,
"There's something deeply creepy about Never Again, a new arrow in Schaeffer's quiver of ineptitudes."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
