Consensus: Brisk, funny, and sweetly raunchy, For a Good Time, Call... adds to the recent string of R-rated female comedies while serving as an overdue coming out party for the charming Ari Graynor.

Watching [Travis] add his kitschy touch to such a witless, faux-edgy movie can only be described as a Travis-ty.

Co-lead Ari Graynor gives the sort of breakout performance that the film requires.

Unfortunately Travis lacks the comedic skill and humanistic insight to make this anything more than Judd Apatow lite.

James Berardinelli

The film is worth seeing for the humor and for its high level of energy, but it falls short of being the "complete package."

Philadelphia Weekly

Constantly ducks away from any semblance of adult sexuality, indulging in garish colors and giggle fits.

Amanda Mae Meyncke

A fun, healthy, sexy comedy that pulls no punches and focuses on a realistic female friendship and the powerful dynamic that sexuality plays in our lives.

Is it one for the ages? No. Is it a good time? Good enough.

It's a comedy that isn't always funny as it struggles to find the right tone between raunchy and sweet. It celebrates female friendship in a way few movies do, but good intentions don't always make for a good film.

This sitcom style comedy is too raunchy, over the top, and just plain not interesting enough to hold the attention of all but the least demanding comedy fans.… More

A woman invested film, Call... never tries to take itself too seriously, but comes up short in appealing to women exclusively or to men at all. It's… More
