Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gillies never gives us any reason to care about these people, though some of the one-liners are amusing."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
""Oconomowoc" has one thing going for it: a running time of just 79 minutes, even if every one of them feels like an eternity."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Warning: The word "quirky" is going to be used a lot in my review of 'Oconomowoc.'"
‑ Witney Seibold, CraveOnline
"Low-rent Wes Anderson, without the style or heart."
‑ Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"At last count, 15,792 people live in Oconomowoc, Wisc. That's about 15,000 more than will see the film that bears its name, a slender absurdist riff on the man-child coming-of-age comedy."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Oconomowoc leans on the tried-and-true formula of squeezed forced-perspective frames, flannel sweaters, bad mustaches and awful public access cable to provoke dismissive laughs."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"Writer-director Andy Gillies' shaggy underachiever alternates between the pointless and the elliptical as the movie sputters out its nominal story ..."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"The second most compelling performance is delivered by a polka-dotted bathrobe ..."
‑ Rob Staeger, Village Voice
"Writer-director Andy Gillies's film is extremely self-conscious, but in a fashion that generally serves the material."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
