Any Questions for Ben? Reviews

Blake Howard
2UE That Movie Show

The Working Dog writing group's collaboration feels so organic. This is searching, vulnerable, dramatic, comedy.

It's a film made for the 1% who question their sweet life while sitting on a gold plated toilet.

The Mercury

While the film does have its flaws story-wise, the killer dialogue with its uniquely Australian style of wit makes it a true joy to watch.

Any Questions for Ben? is watchable enough. But it could have been so much more.

It's full of the kind of fake insights and sanctimonious crap to be found in magazine self-help columns. Pity, because that's a real fun killer.

At the Movies (Australia)

The problem with the film, apart from it being only sporadically funny, is the character of Ben himself, there's too little development and a lot of repetition. But there's a lot to enjoy here.

The whole thing made me nostalgic for Working Dog's sharper days when they would surely have perpetrated all sorts of wickedness at Ben's expense.

Herald Sun (Australia)

I sense that others who similarly fell hard for the soulful sincerity of The Castle and The Dish will feel a little quizzical about the comparative slickness of Any Questions for Ben?

FILMINK (Australia)

The talented bunch of actors ably cut through the surface gloss, but it's tough to remain invested in the plight of the self-absorbed lead.

The Vine

It's a slick, lightweight feel-good film about a bunch of characters who happen to be sharing their glamorous, hard-partying lifestyle with you for a couple of hours.

Trespass

It's slight and rarely laugh out loud funny-pleasant and occasionally chucklesome is an apt way to describe its loose style-but in the end I found myself smiling along to the proceedings, so I guess that's a win.

It's far from perfect, but it's damned funny.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Although this third film from the Working Dog team is their weakest, Any Questions for Ben? is still a funny and insightful look into Gen X pressures in an increasingly fast paced world.

Even though Any Questions for Ben never really produces any unique answers to make it a revelatory rom-com, it has an easy, low-stakes charm, and is buoyed by its very talented cast of performers.

Urban Cinefile

At last, an Australian film that's as sophisticated and slick as its cities, yet down to earth and in touch with our sardonic sense of humour.

The film is blessed with a sharp cast ready to tread the fine line between comedy and drama that works like glue to hold the film together

this graceless comedy has been made by middle-aged dags trying and failing to capture the mannerisms and lifestyles of people decades their junior.
