Critic Reviews for Closing Escrow

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (6) | DVD (4)

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.

September 25, 2007
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

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.

Variety
Top Critic

A spoof, sometimes a funny one, and sometimes just plain overkill.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

The film would have worked better if it had stuck more closely to real estate as both the source and target of the satire.

Top Critic

If you can watch it without weeping over your own predicament, you'll see some serious talent bursting out.

Top Critic

No matter how ridiculous the characters come off, they're more than just punch lines. In fact, despite their quirks, [they're] improbably endearing.

New York Times
Top Critic

... more or less in the Christopher Guest vein, but with nowhere near as many laughs.

September 12, 2007
Los Angeles CityBeat

Escrow isn't as polished or consistent as the best of its sub-genre -- but it's pretty dang funny for the most part.

Full Review… | August 31, 2007
Cinematical

Limited to three couples and their real estate agents and a handful of property locations, this indie never ceases to entertain.

Hollywood Report Card

While far from the cream of the mockumentary crop, it's still a pleasant diversion.

Full Review… | August 24, 2007
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Closing Escrow is one of those self-aware mockumentaries of the sort Christopher Guest likes to make -- only it's not that funny.

Audience Reviews for Closing Escrow

Passably scattershot real estate mockumentary.
