Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A romantic comedy about NY yuppies, who are always on the telephone, set in the West Village, idealized by Holofcener as a cozy neighborhood with no violence, drugs, or harrassment."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"...the main emphisis appears to be on making the characters sound "clever" and "witty.""
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A funny and fetching drama about friendships between women."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"If any of Nicole Holofcener's films were to appeal to a male audience (or at least provide the fewest squirm-inducing moments to it), it would be Walking and Talking."
‑ Matt Bailey, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"An intriguing insight into the big R"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Other than being a pleasant and enjoyable film, it doesn't really have much to say about relationships."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Superbly well made; great performances."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"a totally charming, though lightweight, look at a childhood friendship"
‑ Brandon Judell, Critics Inc./America Online
