LOLA VERSUS puts the fun in dysfunctional love and is what happens when you shake life up a little bit and let it fall out of your hands.

I didn't dislike this movie because I'm a man. I generally disliked this movie because I felt the main character was a bit pathetic.

Lola Versus has plenty of potential, but with a script that has absolutely no handle on its lead character, the experience quickly becomes unbearably frustrating.

More enjoyable than it ought to be.

So awesome, universe! The world hasn't been full enough yet of movies about women who are almost totally obsessed almost exclusively with romance that we cannot use one more of them. Hoorah!

There's a distinct lack of individuality and insight and, appositely enough, if Lola Versus is about a woman floundering, as a film it can be accused of the same.

[An] hour and a half of wearisome quirk and smut...

The producer, Michael London, has been associated with some rather good films, but this is not one of them.

It doesn't always succeed but this sometimes affecting, sometimes darkly funny film is perfect sofa fodder for anyone nursing a broken heart.

Gerwig's dreamy style worked in Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress, because the movie created an eco-system of oddity in which that style could thrive. But here it just grates.

Gerwig's done enough good work to allow us to chalk this one up as a glossy blip.

Enjoyable relationship comedy that commendably avoids some of the usual clichés and succeeds thanks to Greta Gerwig's natural charisma ...

Gerwig charms, but the laughs fall flat under the incessant naval-gazing.

Essentially, this is Gerwig's natural charm versus her character and script's lack of it.

Greta Gerwig makes something of a success out of this mixed bag of rom-com tropes and indie quirks.

[Gerwig's] presence in the center almost makes "Lola Versus" watchable even as it starts to get formulaic, preachy and tiresome.

... at heart it's just a trite and shallow Hollywood rom-com ...

"Lola Versus" is a heavyweight fight Gerwig just can't win.

A more or less conventional sitcom in 'indie' disguise, the film functions most effectively as a low-wattage starring vehicle for the habitually charming Gerwig...

Gerwig finally emerges bruised but resilient at the end. So it's not a total loss.
