[L]ike anything that flirts with the pornographic, Lie With Me bores.

With its drawn-out last act and sentimental ending, pic is a long way from being the Gen-Y Last Tango in Paris it would like to think it is.

A thrust in the right direction.

Top Critic

Director Clement Virgo, working with his partner Tamara Faith Berger's short, snappy novel, Lie With Me, strives to get beyond titillation and largely succeeds.

Top Critic

Another lame attempt to bring extreme eroticis to the big screeen.

Empire Magazine

Using explicit visual language, [the filmmakers] are trying to explore the difference between lust and love, two forces so entwined in new romantic relationships that the lines are blurred.

Audience Reviews for Lie with Me


This Canadian drama-romance film is not bad, but so hot as what I think it is stunning, but never gratuitious or porn-like. The sex scenes are long, filmic and beautifully shot, but not enough. Lauren Lee Smith delivers a performance in an extremely challenging role that required not only an understanding of the "dark side" of modern relationships, but a clear ability to approach the character of "Leila" with honesty, courage and a sense of honesty that transcends most films in this genre.

Waste of time soft porn with a bit of a storyline. I couldn't even sit through it.


Super Reviewer

Is there anything that keeps these two young people together other than sex? Doesn't seem like it. There is a lot of skin in this movie - both Eric Balfour's and Lauren Lee Smith's.
