Paper Man Reviews

Eric Hynes
Time Out New York
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Husband-and-wife writer-directors Keiran and Michele Mulroney try to smooth over implausibilities with an intrusive emo soundtrack and "dramedic" feints, but the effort is useless.

The manipulations characters act out with each other are realistic, even if the overlong and not-nearly-twee-enough comedy built around them isn't, making for a movie whose script may have had more merit than its execution. Or not.

Too introverted and gimmicky for its own good.

We're subjected to so much arbitrary quirkiness that the characters' big breakthroughs and breakdowns ring false, accidentally making for some of the film's biggest laughs.

It's tough to watch such a glum progression through the familiar, with bits of quirk dissected and bandied about.

Slant Magazine

A cross between Greenberg and The Answer Man with a few extra helpings of quirk, Paper Man dully reconfirms that the new millennium's favorite indie-film cliché is the man-child struggling to grow up.

Reaches out for a hug and demands a few tears, but the execution of the film is irritating, making this sensitive picture dishearteningly hopeless and, at least during a few key moments of the feature, seemingly endless.

An artist-in-crisis piece run through a drab but quirk-conscious indie processor.

Married screenwriters Kieran and Michelle Mulroney, who are making their directorial debut, try to wed the peculiar to the poignant and they are irreconcilable.

An intelligent, meticulously constructed, well-acted movie that has been written to death.

What we have in this film is a whole lot of nothing, and the little that's there is irritating.

What the film aims to be, I think, is a dry, witty and intimate glimpse into the lives and souls of these misunderstood everyday people, but simply cannot connect

Are we supposed to look upon a guy who comes on to young girls and plies kids with alcohol as some sort of blithe free spirit?

A big Twinkie stuffed with indie-film cliches and glazed with chiming emo guitars.

The quirk-laden indie Paper Man brings together a novelist who won't grow up with a sullen teenage girl for mutual wallowing, eccentric high jinks and life lessons but, unfortunately, little reason to care.

Jeff Daniels' issues are self-indulgent. But to him, his writer's block and insubstantial life are epic, and the film sides with him more often than not.

I can think of no better way to describe Paper Man than the blogger who wrote that the point of this awful movie is "No matter how immature you are, you can always remain married to Lisa Kudrow."

A flimsy character study...as ephemeral and forgettable as a sheet of paper carried off by a gust of wind.

We don't even get a real sense of what kind of writer Richard is, or even if he's any good. It does make a difference, after all, if the novel he can't write is worth writing. A bigger question: Was "Paper Man" worth making?
