Consensus: Heartwarming and acidic in turns, this offbeat dramedy about two meter maids in love features solid performances from Samantha Morton and Jason Patric.

Leo Goldsmith

Death and regret hang over the film palpably, and Miniucchi's willingness to put her characters through disaster and humiliation while still plainly empathizing with them is what keeps the film surprising and its characters winning, in spite of themselves

The performances are expert, but can't make up for a flat script and direction.

Jason McKiernan

one of the most inept, poorly-mounted productions of the decade

L.A. Weekly

Expired pretends to be a valentine to society's outcasts, but it's just one more indie comedy that mocks its characters while sucking up to its knowing audience.

Manohla Dargis
New York Times

The funny, sad, offbeat, sometimes off-the-beat romance Expired is one of those precariously balanced movies that might fall to pieces with a different cast.

Frank Ochieng
Movie Eye

Unconventionally quirky in its unassuming blue-collar bluntness, Expired is comically horrifying in its examination of lonely people living on the fringe of professional obscurity and personalized disarray.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

One of those Sundance "comedies" that make you contemplate slitting your wrists.

Rafer Guzman

Despite terrific efforts from its lead players, Expired runs its meter out long before the end.

Lewis Beale
Film Journal International

Miniucchi's screenplay is an unwieldy blend of pathos and unsettling moments, which become increasingly uninteresting as the film trudges to a dreary close.
