Movie Info

Amos Kollek directs this quiet, understated comedy about lonely hearts and empty pockets in New York. Pushing 40, Bella (Anna Thomson) works as a waitress at small downtown diner in Manhattan. Her elderly regulars include Paul (Robert Modica), a lovelorn retiree who scours the personal ads and his ill-tempered buddies Seymour (Victor Argo) and Graham (Mark Margolis), who are more than a little disparaging toward Paul's attempts at finding love. Involved in a 12-year relationship with married

Despite some lovely moments ... Fast Food Fast Women operates like a sitcom.

Nothing runs very deep, or very diverting ... in this overplayed, underwritten slice of (love-)life.

Tries hard to be charming, but succeeds only occasionally.

An incoherent jumble of characters and situations.

Has a vacant, inept, why-oh-why feeling from its opening minutes and only gets worse.

Naive as Kollek's writing is, there's something winning about his sympathy with out-of-step characters.

Audience-insulting. Our heroine has faced no difficulty, learned nothing, earned nothing, but she has a lovely fairy-tale ending that's supposed to make us leave the theater happy.

March 11, 2003 Full Review Source: Offoffoff

Just a vain attempt at making a movie about the perils of romance in the modern age.

September 9, 2002 Full Review Source:

There is warmth and empathy at the core of this movie that can overcome everything about it that's frustrating.

July 9, 2001 Full Review Source: SPLICEDWire

This movie's goofy charm won me over by the time it ended.

This small romantic comedy should be applauded for its pleasures.

June 29, 2001

One of those genially paced, character-driven indies, and succeeds as such very well.

Dreary and dull.

June 15, 2001 Full Review Source: Oregonian

An overly familiar, poorly cast and often annoyingly crude New York comedy that never finds its groove.

As light and lofty and as full of charm as the proverbial lead balloon.
