Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Offers a few laughs, all served up on eyeball-gougingly ugly digital video."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Supporting Characters tends to meander pleasantly from scene to scene, relying on the testy rapport between its two lead actors."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"Glides from a mildly off-putting opening across several scenes that waver between sitcom superficiality and sudden, unexpected gusts of feeling."

‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"[A] modest but surprisingly deft indie ..."

‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"In its sharply etched sketches of personal and professional frissons, Supporting Characters belies the modesty of both its lo-fi setup and its self-effacing title."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
