Critic Reviews for Irene in Time

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (9)

A disappointingly monotonous weepie.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

[Jaglom's] closing dedication -- "For my daughter" -- turns this into something actively creepy, as opposed to merely brainless, boring and inept.

Top Critic

Mr. Jaglom displays an endearing lack of cynicism but an equal lack of discipline.

New York Times
Top Critic

With its sappy musical vignettes and encounter-session dialogue, the movie consistently overplays its insights, though all three leads contribute thoughtful and genuine performances.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

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.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

There's some sharply written dialogue, and a few strong performances in supporting roles. But much of the action onscreen doesn't ring true.

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.
