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.

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

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

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

It's a testament to the charm of actress Greta Gerwig that she can save this sluggish script.

Every time I walk out of a movie with Greta Gerwig in it, such as Damsels in Distress, Greenberg, and especially Arthur, I think, "You know what would have made that movie better? More Greta Gerwig."

While Lola is adorable throughout, neither she nor the film will be remembered the morning after.

Lola Versus is all Greta all the time, a bonanza for fans and proof that Gerwig's easy offbeat charm, obvious smarts and physical comedy gifts can carry a film.

It's a wonder Gerwig manages to keep the character endearing instead of grating, but she does.

Plays like a studio-produced romantic comedy as made by people who genuinely care about and are invested in their flawed but kind-hearted protagonist.

It's funny, sweet, wise and even a little life-affirming.

"Lola Versus" takes the Lego-piece building blocks of a New York City relationship comedy and turns it into something more asymmetrical and ironic and interesting.

A conventionally unconventional romance in the modern mode, a comedy alternating between cute and crude and packing a heaping helping of self-affirmation into its 84 minutes.

Hipster romantic dramedy has some sex, drinking, language.

Wein, Lister-Jones, Gerwig et al deserve some credit for turning the romantic comedy on its head with a love story that begins when the relationship ends.

It's a sweet little diddle of a movie that doesn't make the mistake of tying everything up in a big bright bow.

[It] transcends being just another chick flick and becomes an exploration of a subject that should ring true for just about every female viewer: the relentless narcissism of the friend who makes everything about her.

Gerwig is ... distinctive and interesting an actress to watch, especially when the story includes a lot of raw truth-telling.
