Critic Reviews for Bob, Verushka, and the Pursuit of Happiness
Though it seems cruel to disparage a scrappy little independent picture that actually has some ideas but a story about the allure of American consumerism demands a seductive gloss that Stigliano can't deliver.
An endearing screwball comedy that brings to mind Jonathan Demme's Something Wild.
While Waite's deadpan delivery eases the torture, Stigliano's micro-budget film plays like a preachy relic of the Gorbachev era.
