Movie Info

Four years into her biochemistry Ph.D. program at Harvard, Samantha still cannot replicate the results she achieved in her first few weeks in the program, and her charmingly neurotic tendencies are turning into a serious control problem. Her anxiousness extends beyond her lab work and into her relationship with long-term boyfriend, Ben. When Ben proposes marriage, Sam panics, worried that their relationship "data" is inconclusive. Insisting that she cannot have faith without proof, Sam decides

Losing Control nicely mixes comedic absurdity with weightier career vs. commitment themes.

Perhaps investigating something new would have better served Weiss than simply looking to her own experiences, exploring rather than settling.

Weiss's ideas about moviemaking, storytelling, and character development are indistinguishable from bargain-bin romantic comedies (so-called chick flicks) and television shows that barely last a season.

[Kent is] the least credible scientist since Denise Richards donned short shorts to play Dr. Christmas Jones.

While Losing Control is a thoroughly likable, playful comedy, there's never a sense that writer-director Valerie Weiss is in total command of film's tone, pacing or comic content, which is considerable.

Science-themed rom-com isn't ready for clinical trials.

Losing Control a film experiment gone wrong

The tone and pacing and even the characters are inconsistent, but still writer/director Valerie Weiss gives the film some wit, some humorous situations, and a refreshing dash of real science.

With its labored parade of polygamists, neurotic Jewish parents, and projectile semen explosions, Control offers nothing new. This one should have stayed in a test tube.

Clumsy, awkward, unfunny indie rom-com about a grad-student scientist trying to quantify whether or not she's really in love.

The film, in its defense, is far too vacuous to be accused of having any kind of agenda-it just happens to get its politics wrong along with everything else.

The tepid indie feelgood romcom follows a too familiar formulaic storyline to hold my interest.
