Critic Reviews for Mini
Overlooking low production values and shaky performances from unknown actors is one thing, but when you put together a comedy that isn't particularly funny, then we have a big problem.
Goes a long way on performances alone, which are among the most spot-on archetypal comedic renderings I've seen in years.
This micro-indie has a full-sized heart and enough humor to make its scale immaterial
This is a movie that is out to forge comedy out of character and creative situations, a feat few in today's shock jock realm fully understand.
The Mini has some stylistic grace, and obviously is a work of heart and soul. But Beck left his wit out of it -- and that's the rub.
Despite its flaws, there's something likeable about The Mini. . . . If I were to run afoul of the law and the judge ordered me to watch the same movie for a year, I'd choose The Mini over Clerks.
The film takes some patience, but the comic style does eventually kick in.
