Consensus: dot the i starts out as a standard love triangle, but last minute revelations turn the movie into a gimmick.

Kerry Lengel
Arizona Republic

As much as it tries to be a smart, postmodern indie film, dot the i is pure Hollywood fluff.

Eleanor Ringel Cater
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

While stylishly done, Parkhill's script isn't nearly as clever as he thinks it is, and the sucker punch near the end lacks, well, punch.

David Noh
Film Journal International

You watch the screen in disbelief and amazement that any aspiring auteur could so willfully undermine his own project this way.

John Monaghan
Detroit Free Press

Parkhill tries to keep new blood pulsing through the film, but the movie stalls by its third act, where he plays a trick that seems more desperate than fresh.

Colin Covert
Minneapolis Star Tribune

Inflicts great pain on the audience by wringing its plot into a bruised and pulpy mass.

Take a long, hard look at Parkhill's film, and you'll find too many i's undotted.

Robert Denerstein
Denver Rocky Mountain News

Dot the I doesn't suffer from a lack of skill. Rather it becomes a lesson in the pitfalls of moviemaking that runs on cleverness and too little else.

James O'Ehley
SA Movie & DVD Magazine

Dot the I is okay-ish until it drops one of those Sixth Sense-style plot twists which negates everything that has gone before it into audiences' laps . . .

Starts off predictably, then gets interesting towards the end but only slightly interesting. Worth the worth for Gael Garcia Bernal..but that's about it.

This is a big champagne budget movie done on a beer budget. Seeing how the story is told with what appears to be several beginners at the helm made it even… More
