Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A you-are-there slip-and-slide that follows a supermarket chain's pricing department exec whose life gets upended by a whirlwind new boss."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Parker Posey cuts a ferociously funny swath through Michael Walker's "Price Check," a corporate comedy that tells you more than you ever wanted to know about the hypercompetitive world of retail marketing."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Posey is bravely unlikable and invested in Walker's script, turning Price Check from a mechanical comedic routine about office politics into something complex and occasionally dangerous. I wasn't aware she was even capable of this."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"The script is teeming with informed jargon about the business of supermarket pricing, and with actors like Posey as its vessel, the dialogue rings with an unlikely blend of fascination and farce."
‑ R. Kurt Osenlund, Slant Magazine
"Betting dollars to donuts, the most humdrum trip to the market will offer a more riveting entertainment. Parker Posey notwithstanding ... Price Check is as limp as last week's lettuce."
‑ Kimberly Gadette, Doddle
"Walker finds a few fresh veins to mine, and some nice performances."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It never feels like Walker seems all that interested in pursuing any of these ideas once he's raised them."
‑ Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"You can usually count on Parker Posey. That said, it's a real shame to watch her admirable talents dry up in the easily forgettable Price Check."
‑ Chase Whale, Twitch
"The latest stinging entry into the reality check stream of movies tackling the financial fallout of the Great Recession in one way or another. But too bad it's an entry into the stream of movies with buffoonish bashing of powerful women as well."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"A hilarious Parker Posey provides her customary blast of brittle energy in "Price Check," an engaging corporate comedy."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"[Posey] inspires. She terrorizes. Whatever it takes to get the job done."
‑ Scott Tobias, NPR
"Writer and director Walker posits a theory that unfortunately undermines the entire film: Casting the great Parker Posey as an offbeat character does not automatically make a film a comedy."
‑ Christine N. Ziemba, Paste Magazine
"Posey's vivacious energy, mercurial moods, superlative sense of comic timing - all come to the fore in this tasty and dark little comedy about ambition and dreams deferred."
‑ Marshall Fine, Hollywood & Fine
