Consensus: Critics say Committed is one of those films that shows promise -- some sort of vision -- of what the movie could have been. The key word is "could."

All in all, Committed lacks the courage of its convictions.

Until it backs itself into a narrative corner, Lisa Krueger's Committed. is a delightfully unpredictable experience.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Somewhat bizarre chick flick. R for language.

Ambiguous enough to let you contemplate the thin line between love and obsession.

Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times

With its capacity to surprise, the film comes to life when you don't expect it to.

Krueger deserves credit for pulling off what amounts to a madcap date movie.

The lighthearted romantic comedy Committed has Heather Graham going for it, but that's about all. Graham is incredibly charming and lights up the screen… More
