Critic Reviews for Friends & Lovers

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

Writer-director George Haas' debut feature offers nothing as it strains to be funny and provocative.

Top Critic

A cold, stupid bore about people with no goodness, just geniality; no inner life, just impulses.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

A movie that operates on a level of such staggering ineptitude that its very existence is offensive.

This movie is not merely bad, but incompetent. I get tapes in the mail from 10th graders that are better made than this.

Top Critic

An inept farce with the mentality of a tittering 15-year-old boy peering under the bedcovers with a flashlight.

Audience Reviews for Friends & Lovers

For the most part it's a completely worthless movie, but it does contain the complete and utter brilliance of RDJ as Hans. His character is amazing and one of the most hilarious and outrageous bit performances of all time. His nutball German accent and frosted hair is unforgettable. It's a shame the movie couldn't have revolved around him, that would have been something to see. Sadly, this movie is haunted by Stephen Baldwin and an ensemble cast that is anything but good.

Awesome movie. Funny too. Especially Robert Downey Jr. with that accent. The ending was funny too, there was the one guy who got no action during the whole time there,lol. Great movie, very fun to watch.
