Critic Reviews for Loosies

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (9)

Making romance a big part of the mix dooms a movie already saddled with one of the worst titles in recent memory.

Top Critic

Romantic comedies are often as contrived and irritating as "Loosies," but few feature a lead character so lacking in appeal.

New York Post
Top Critic

Facinelli's transformation from feckless charmer to committed caretaker seems contrived, leaving the film feeling like a series of stitched-together scenes with little internal drive.

Not a great movie, but satisfying enough to hold attention and win your affection -- a rare blue-plate combo on today's overcrowded menu of movie chaos that sticks to your ribs and stays there.

Top Critic

Loosies has a bevy of colorful character actors -- from Michael Madsen and William Forsythe to Vincent Gallo and Joe Pantoliano -- but little character.

Village Voice
Top Critic

An amorphous, laugh-flecked drama about a New York City pickpocket that mostly comes across as a feature-length advertisement for its likable star and writer, Peter Facinelli.

Audience Reviews for Loosies

Considering that this movie had the two biggest B-movie kings (Michael Madsen, and William Forsythe), should have been my first clue that is was going to be just so-so. ...and it was.

It's not the worst romantic comedy out there, but it's too familiar, stupid, and cliched to really make it worth watching. We know where the film's going to go, the entire premise is distractedly silly, and it's just not that funny. The acting is all pretty serviceable, but the chemistry is lacking, and the material doesn't do them any favors. It doesn't go any place particularly unique, but instead follows a very predictable formula, and not in a particularly interesting way. The execution, like most of the film, is passable but not engaging. At the end you have a forgettable, and largely lackluster romcom.

2.5/5 Stars
