Critic Reviews for Closing Escrow
The obviously improvised proceedings -- at least let's hope they're improvised -- fail to produce the desired laughs, with frequent pauses after punch lines that will only result in lengthy silences.
A sometimes laugh-out-loud send-up of homebuyers' worst instincts, the extreme behavior of real-estate agents and what happens when the certifiably insane save enough for a down payment.
The film would have worked better if it had stuck more closely to real estate as both the source and target of the satire.
If you can watch it without weeping over your own predicament, you'll see some serious talent bursting out.
No matter how ridiculous the characters come off, they're more than just punch lines. In fact, despite their quirks, [they're] improbably endearing.
... more or less in the Christopher Guest vein, but with nowhere near as many laughs.
Escrow isn't as polished or consistent as the best of its sub-genre -- but it's pretty dang funny for the most part.
Limited to three couples and their real estate agents and a handful of property locations, this indie never ceases to entertain.
While far from the cream of the mockumentary crop, it's still a pleasant diversion.
