Silberling has shot what feels like the first home movie to get a national release; it's too cute to criticize for anything other than its fluff.

It's ultra low-key as only indie films can be, but there's enough charm and warmth to fill the spaces left by the 'missing' action.

...worth discovering, and it can be discovered by each person who watches it, no matter how many reviews are read, no matter how many friends see it and recommend it. It's just that kind of movie.

...Rachman's film makes the case that under the right circumstances anger and outrage and defiance are an art form unto themselves.

This is a sharp little slice of whimsy with Freeman giving a funny, very laid-back and sometimes touching performance.

As modest and indie-ish as you can get with the delightfulMorgan Freeman flirting with the lovely Paz Vega.

A light-hearted and feel-good independent film about two strangers who connect in a way that surprises both of them and enriches their lives: it's one of the best films of the year.

In its own low-key way, 10 Items or Less is completely satisfying, and as a showcase for a great veteran actor and a gifted young actress, it's essential viewing.

The bare-boned simplicity of 10 Items or Less is more a strength than a liability.

He and Scarlet, in another movie, might have found a way to spin their one day's worth of intimacy into something more movie-like, but here, they keep it contained.

Granted, Freeman is essentially playing a variation of himself, while Vega is mining her spunky screen persona. But they deliver.

The film is brief, thin and anecdotal. Yet at its heart is a loving look at an artist at work, and that artist is Morgan Freeman.

An amiable demonstration of how two charismatic actors and a relaxed writer-director (Brad Silberling) can squeeze an enjoyable movie out of practically nothing...

It's a sweet, calculated two-hander starring someone you know very well and someone you've never heard of but probably should...
