Critic Reviews for Irene in Time
[Jaglom's] closing dedication -- "For my daughter" -- turns this into something actively creepy, as opposed to merely brainless, boring and inept.
Mr. Jaglom displays an endearing lack of cynicism but an equal lack of discipline.
With its sappy musical vignettes and encounter-session dialogue, the movie consistently overplays its insights, though all three leads contribute thoughtful and genuine performances.
It offers certain pleasures, but suffers from an inability to structure events or know when to end a shot. And it has an ending that is simply, perhaps ridiculously, incomprehensible.
Audience Reviews for Irene in Time
This film cracked me up - until the end. Irene, played beautifully by Tanna Frederick, is a real nut case, I knew someone like her once - she was hard to take but pople admired the fact that she had so much energy. Anyway, she;s an emotional train wreck of a girl, looking for her lost daddy in all her date and trying to "do it right" by reading all the popular books on dating. Irene In Time is funny and moving in some parts. Victoria Tennant is wonderful as Irene's mom. And you can't lose in a movie that had both David "the Sopranos" Proval and Karen Black.
I feel terrible. I know someone who was in this and I still can't give it more than 10%. Dear lord this was the stinker to end all stinkers. In addition to the story being PAINFULLY cliche and corny, it was also PAINFULLY told. The lead actress looks like Eric Stoltz in MASK,...but not as hot. The fact that someone put ANY money into this piece of vanity crap is enough evidence that Hollywood should be shut down for good.
To paraphrase Dan Akroyd this is "bad cinema"
all of my friend unite in speaking ill of it.
The director's effort here is just disgusting.
