Losing Control Reviews

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.

If you want to enjoy watching a confused scientist grappling with life choices, stick with "The Nutty Professor."

Takes a frenzied late turn into espionage territory, an attempt to gather momentum that only makes the film more tiresome.
