... tries to coast on this surface of quirks and cute details, but Weinstock's perfunctory direction stumbles over her attempts at humor and sabotages her performers.

The movie ends on exactly the right note, but it hits a lot of bad ones on the way.

Jane Weinstock certainly has talent, and Marguerite Moreau deserves more opportunities to shine as a lead, but the longer Easy goes on, the less of that talent you see.

There's much too much going on here, enough for an entire season of a TV sitcom, which Easy should have been in the first place.

In forced, quirky tedium, it drags us through love triangles, mommy issues and crying jags that make you want to shake this chick.

Weinstock's screenplay takes too many shortcuts, never letting the characters emerge as people in their own right, rather than as a collection of carefully assigned character traits.

A few chuckles and an attractive cast of capable actors can't overcome a scattered script that travels well-worn indie territory.

Weinstock takes you down a well-trod path in romantic comedy, but her characters are smart and funny, the twists are unexpected and, for once, a romantic triangle is presented realistically with the choice a woman must face being anything but easy.

A small but satisfying romance with a pleasant soundtrack and some unusual backdrops.

It's easy to pan Easy as a second-rate effort to make a first-rate indie movie. But you may come away well satisfied with your hour and a half's entertainment.

A date movie whose unresolved conflicts allows us in the audience to discuss possible scenarios for the future.

Weinstock adds such realism to her script and such great characters, you can't help but like this film even if it does sort of follow a formula.

It is a lively, idiosyncratic romantic comedy, funny and sexy but with a strong serious streak.

[Weinstock] does an impressive job of capturing the brave messiness of single life, or at least of 20-something dating.
