Consensus: Marianna Palka's quirky indie debut centred on two dysfunctional loners is hit and miss, but has enough originality to see it through.

Surely some of the young woman's porn videos would make better viewing.

New York Daily News

As irritatingly monosyllabic as its characters, this indie 'romance' -- the quote marks aren't an accident -- feels over-workshopped and false at almost every point.

Instead of embodying the fun and spirited fluff that a rom com should be, this film just grinds its teeth through the process.

James Greenberg
Hollywood Reporter

Alternately compelling and dramatically limp, the film scores points for exploring unfamiliar territory but lacks the emotional depth to make some very strange behavior believable.

Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times

Dysfunction beguiles in Good Dick, a perverse romantic comedy whose coarse title belies its tender heart.

Don Groves

A weird love story between two damaged souls.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

A short and sweet anti-romantic comedy, Good Dick puts together a heav ily depressed young woman with a homeless clerk who rents her porn at a Los Angeles video store.

Ultimately, the body part that gets the most play is the mouth, with the hyphenate and her personal-professional partner Ritter trading the sort of sub-Cassavetes banter that screams self-written acting exercises.

John J. Puccio
Movie Metropolis

...a lot more poignant than most of Hollywood's big-budget, star-studded takes on the subject.

This movie trumps Punch-Drunk Love for strangest on-screen couple in a movie I've seen in recent months.
