Consensus: She's Funny That Way is an affectionate, talent-filled throwback to screwball comedies of old -- which makes it even more frustrating that the laughs are disappointingly few and far between.

The actors do their best with a hit-and-miss screenplay.

She's Funny That Way often displays an old-school generosity and polish, and at least one breakout performance - but just as often, its moments of inspiration are tempered by miscasting and shrill attempts at humor.

Amusing piffle for audiences congenitally annoyed by new-fangled comedies.

The giggly men's-magazine tone, especially in Bogdanovich's treatment of call girls, makes the movie seem weirdly anachronistic.

So hopelessly nostalgic about the madcap fizz and fury of screwball pictures, it never works up a head of steam as a funny, in-this-moment comedy on its own.

She's Funny That Way is an oddity that feels like a crowd pleaser but ultimately plays to a very small room.

Wesley Morris

The whole movie is tantrums and meltdowns and pitiful nostalgia... And yet every once in a while, something funny will happen.

There's barely a whiz-bang punch line or smoothly executed setup to be found in a movie that longs to be a sparkling bedroom comedy and winds up a tortured, fizz-free farce.

Screwball comedy about prostitute aims for farce but misses.
