Big Hollywood

Stiller succeeds in a dramatic role but the script underwhelms with a meandering story and an unlikable lead character.

The characters are so socially destructive that it's difficult to care what happens to any of them.

Good luck with yourself, Greenberg. But I think I want to break up.

Greenberg may be good with wood, but Stiller is pure Polyfilla as he tries to plug the credibility gaps in a messy script which features one of the most ludicrous sex scenes in history.

It is always difficult to care for a film with a central character who is whiney, self-centered, and pathetic. This movie and Greenberg the character are no exception.

A lot like spending time with friends of friends that are amusing, maybe even fascinating, but ultimately really annoying

Times-Picayune

As well-acted and sporadically charming as Greenberg is, Baumbach's consumption with misery keeps Stiller's character, and the film named for him, from being likable.

The glib stabs at Jean Eustache-like candor from The Squid and the Whale and Margot at the Wedding don't get any less hollow by being transplanted to California

In L.A., if you squint your eyes just right, it's not all that hard to imagine that the house that you're tending may very well be your own. Yet in the harsh delineation of Greenberg, we're squinting for a whole other reason.

Noah Baumbach again investigates psychologically screwed-up people, although this time with much less comedic impact.

Entertainment Spectrum

Detest may not be a strong enough word to express what surely ranks as the worst movie of 2010. If you choose to ignore this warning, you may want to jump off a cliff after seeing this debacle for yourself

As played by Ben Stiller, the character of Greenberg fails to transcend his abhorrent exterior.

In Greenberg it's sometimes difficult to figure out whether it's Roger or Baumbach who has lost his way.

While Baumbach may not have written Roger Greenberg as his most unlikable character yet, as played by Ben Stiller that's exactly what he becomes.

Baumbach fails to create a compelling case for investing oneself in Greenberg's quest for self-actualization.

As a portrait of self-obsession, Greenberg has its moments but the film never gives us sufficient reason to care about Roger...

A bore. No story. About a narcissistic, mean-spirited, depressed 40 year old.

You may well identify with Roger's relentless irritation. But you probably won't like it.

Baumbach doesn't have much to offer besides the comfort of malaise, which dilutes the gravity, making the film's uncompromising attitude almost predictable.

Overmedicated, and squeezing lemonade out of far too many lemons. And though there are a few upbeat surprises like a post-operative get well burger, periodic dramatic CPR is highly recommended slouching towards the credits. Pass the Prozac.
