Jack Goes Boating Reviews

Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine

It's not easy to adapt a stage play to the screen and make it seem like something other than canned theater, a problem directors have dealt with throughout the history of cinema.

I love Philip Seymour Hoffman, but his directing debut, like so many American Indies, features strong characters cursed by a lack of story, purpose and pacing.

It's a mighty awkward adaptation for such an uncomplicated project...

Take Jack's lead and give this one a miss.

A sensitively rendered piece which unfortunately lacks sufficient heft to work as either a romantic drama or a musing on life's daily miseries.

What Would Toto Watch?

Hoffman, the unofficial king of indie films, gets a bit too precious with his directorial debut.

Carries an overpowering scent of writerly affectation.

Sometimes you go to the movies wanting a ridiculous I-love-you! dash to the airport instead of a relentless reflection of your own boring or bile-filled existence.

An indescribable little film of behaviors and performance, and while that effort is commendable, the picture can't help but come off insincere, waiting patiently for some sign of cinematic life that isn't completely affected.

To say this snoozy, awkward movie is an 'acting showcase' would be unfair to the vastly superior work these performers have done elsewhere.

Glaudini expects character tics to substitute for plot development.

Just another movie that could be titled Sad Guy in New York.

Shared Darkness

A characteristically morose wallow in indie-style shoe-gazing that should only please the most dedicated fans of the talented Philip Seymour Hoffman.

[T]he oddball-ness of Jack and Connie is strained and -- excellent performances by both actors aside -- fails to ring true...

Hoffman is stymied by the difficult task of transforming stage material into a movie; Jack Goes Boating's camera just sits there while actors act.

Jack Goes Boating wasn't a particularly witty or insightfully written play to begin with, and much of its elemental charm has dissipated upon being put to film.

Hoffman's directing debut delivers a film so weak I could barely remember what it was about as I left the cinema.
