The director and co-writer Ishmael Chawla never make their characters venal.

Johnson provides them with plenty of challenges and reasons to question their values, priorities and goals.

Chris Mason Johnson directs from a script he co-wrote, giving us little reason to care for his physically attractive, emotionally empty characters.

The movie is admirable for taking these people seriously, even if it does little to illuminate their individual or cultural significance.

Earnest performances can't help the warmed-over sitcom quality.

Chris Mason Johnson's ensemble drama could've been just another earnest time capsule about friends in their late twenties; what saves it from devolving into mere mumblecore is a broader-than-average outlook.

There's something uniquely irritating about the kind of too-serious-for-its-own-good alternative-lifestyle drama subheading that Chris Mason Johnson's The New Twenty neatly falls under.

Has interesting characters and a terrific cast, but feels somewhat contrived, bland and lacking an authentic emotional resonance.

Lacing timeless group dynamics with current concerns, Johnson straddles the line between glossy fluff and serious generational inquiry.

There's nothing particularly new or moving in this study of friends growing up and apart from one another, which only makes you want to yell, "Move on! College was ten years ago!"
