Top Critic

As a satire, Garmento is toothless. As a comedy, it's funny only in spurts.

Dallas Morning News
Top Critic

This shaky satire set in New York's garment district is consistently undone by an inconsistency of tone and less-than-assured directing and acting.

Top Critic

Despite MacNichol's sneaky verve and Thornton's sly subtlety the lead characters swiftly fade and shrink.
