Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This dreary independent drama is essentially an art-world soap opera, but without the melodramatic verve that makes some soap operas interesting."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"The direction is decent, and the film is handsome. But it's finally frustrating, enigmatic in a way that suggests emptiness more than mystery."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"Full of humor and humanity, Nobody Walks is an emotionally complex, acutely observed and sensual film and one of the best at Sundance this year."
‑ Cory Everett, The Playlist
"It's soap opera with a Hollywood tan."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"...part comedy and part hipster horror film."
‑ Chris Barsanti, PopMatters
"What we have here is a household ripe with seduction, lust, betrayal and repression, all kept below the surface by increasingly strained good manners."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"[A] lackluster indie drama ..."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"A bushel full of familiar indie-film devices held together by honest writing and charming performers."
‑ Chris Foran, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"Nervous, intriguingly sour little character study."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"A defiance of expectations and exploration of sexual politics that challenges convention--both in art and in real life."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Paste Magazine
"...a self-important nightmare ... shallow script and boring situations. Perhaps that is the simplest way to sum up the film, boring. Offensively boring."
‑ Amanda Mae Meyncke,
"You feel the characters' pangs as they spin out of control, and you are reminded of how easy it is for a careless sexual adventurer to destroy relationships and families on a whim, without even fully realizing it."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A movie made by women about men who misunderstand sexual signals, behaving badly, and the women who are stuck dealing with their bruised egos."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Nobody does much of anything else, either, and that's the problem in this meandering and pretentious low-budget comedy."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"Interesting but unsatisfying film about infidelity."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
