An embittered television executive working for a hip-hop-oriented music channel finds her fate intricately tied with a New York City taxi driver after hailing his cab for questionable purposes in director Jeff Stanzler's intimate look at the tenuous relationship between Caucasians and Muslims in post-9/11 America. Phoebe (Robin Wright Penn) hates her job at Q Dog TV, and focuses the brunt of her disgruntled rage squarely on co-worker Phyllis MacIntyre (Sandra Oh).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As the characters unravel -- and how -- so too does the movie."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"It's a well-meaning but ultimately feeble and misguided attempt to say something profound about the aftereffects of the 2001 attacks on New York."
‑ John McMurtrie, San Francisco Chronicle
"Stereotype- and expectation-busting indie drama."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Does build steam as it goes, though the somewhat slow pacing works against it."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Ambitious but seriously confused social commentary."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"It contains such a gripping performance by Robin Wright Penn that it succeeds, in a way, despite itself. To see great work is a reason to see an imperfect movie, and to observe how the movie loses its way may be useful even if it's frustrating."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"That Penn and Kechiche are so committed to their roles only makes writer-director Jeff Stanzler's film more of a conundrum."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"A psychological thriller with a cleverly-concealed subplot likely to surprise even the best of cinema sleuths."
‑ Kam Williams, Upstage Magazine
"Many audience members will likely be turned off by the film's bizarre ending. I'd defend it, solely on the grounds that it is the appropriate finish for the entire misbegotten mess."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"The idea could and previously has been done well, but here it makes for a thoroughly unpleasant film experience."
‑ Mark R. Leeper,
"A preposterous screwball psychological drama called Sorry, Haters, a film roughly as successful as the phrase 'screwball psychological drama' implies."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Sorry, Haters trades in glib reversals, not complexities -- just about everyone is a crude stereotype turned on its head."
‑ , L.A. Weekly
"A product of a younger, confused generation raised on a junk diet of corporate media propaganda and tabloid news substituting hip for history, it's distanced from any candid self-reflection, while demonizing women as the main source of global distress."
‑ Prairie Miller, WBAI Web Radio
"Despite moments of confusion in the script by director Jeff Stanzler, Sorry, Haters remains engrossing, largely because of Penn's superb portrayal."
‑ Jack Garner, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
"[It's] all about how New Yorkers are dealing with the wake of 9/11, but the replication of that off-kilter feeling comes all in the structure of the story and the heightened sense of the absurd that it creates."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
