For a Good Time, Call... Reviews

Sure, there's some ribald humor, and the subject matter is clearly edgy. However, it's really a sweet story of friendship wrapped in a sexy package.

The Ooh Tray

For a Good Time, Call... is one of those pleasant surprises sometimes experienced in the cinema when the Gods of Celluloid, reading your attendance as a sign of defeat, take pity and alchemise the material you'd braced yourself to despise.

Colourful direction and sparky performances help make this friendship comedy watchable, although it never seems like a finished film.

What saves this ultimately charming indie... from its inescapable sitcomishness and an over-reliance on some tired stereotypes is that it does manage genuine cuteness in a realm that has enormous potential to be icky and crude.

Ari Graynor and Lauren Anne Miller are great as the sassy pair and despite a veneer of sex, in truth the film is more about friendship.

Disarmingly sweet, defending the girls' enterprise and friendship in the face of all judgment.

Shared Darkness

Transcends the more pat aspects of its story, connecting in fun fashion by sheer force of personality.

Matthew Turner

Earns points for focusing on the central female friendship and for its refreshingly frank and breezy attitude to sex, though it's slightly let down by a late-arriving plot development that fails to fully convince.

For A Good Time delivers, yes, exactly that.

The two charmingly funny leads and smart, timely dialogue are what make the film work; bottom line, calling upon this comedy flick will definitely result in a good time.

Creative Loafing

While the film still earns a recommendation, a better buildup and a few more potent gags might have elevated this from bridesmaid status in the comedy genre to Bridesmaids status as an across-the-board hit.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The movie gets a lot of mileage out of the appeal of its two stars. Miller and Graynor work well together and cultivate an authentic, even touching, relationship.

A fun, healthy, sexy comedy that pulls no punches and focuses on a realistic female friendship and the powerful dynamic that sexuality plays in our lives.

It's easy to give into its charms.

The thin but amusing concept is bolstered by the performances of its two spunky protagonists.

The film is worth seeing for the humor and for its high level of energy, but it falls short of being the "complete package."

Graynor has delivered reliable comedic backup before, stealing the show in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and the otherwise dreckful What's Your Number?. Here, she's second to no one.

Is it one for the ages? No. Is it a good time? Good enough.
