Kid-friendly rom-com lures but doesn't hook.

A breezy, wholly engaging ninety minutes spent with a delightful cast.

Brian Webster
Apollo Guide

Standard romantic comedy, but it's done so nicely, and is sufficiently spiced up by an unusual what-am-I-really-watching? storytelling device, that it rises above its genre.

Brian Orndorf
DVDTalk.com

Evoking a smothering sense of poisonous romantic yearning and horrifying personal inventory results, Fish hits those sharp notes of characterization often, in the middle of a plot that dances around convention perhaps one too many times.

Even if cast differently, this would be a weird film.

The relentless quirkiness of the proceedings proves wearisome, and the bizarre structural conceit is not enough to compensate for the overly familiar characterizations and story line.

Austin Chronicle

Perhaps in more experienced hands, this self-reflection could achieve insight, but as director Adler's first feature and Fish's first produced screenplay, this mess was better left inside the writer's head.

Charms you with a quirkiness that feels oddly genuine and unforced.

Filled with painfully awkward men with painfully bad haircuts, I'm Reed Fish exhibits less energy than a sloth on Seconal.

Some nice performances (Fisk is especially appealing as Reed's love interest) and a go-nowhere midfilm meta shift don't propel the movie beyond its pat life-lesson intentions.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Fish's tender evocation of being forced by a life-changing epiphany to find the courage to step outside the confines of routine is beautifully realized by an endearing ensemble.

The movie, which looks like it was made on the cheapest camera borrowed from the A/V club, was apparently based on the experience of its writer, Reed Fish, who should either await more interesting experiences or work up some imagination.

Modest charmer about a folksy community radio show host.

The acting is good, the turf is familiar, and the mood is sweet without causing diabetes.

Add a bunch of indie bands, find a Braff look-alike (Jay Baruchel) to play the lead, top it off with some obscure animal hybrid -- a zorse instead of a liger -- and you've got writer Reed Fish's can't-fail debut.

Sundance homilies and truisms are encased in a meta frame in I'm Reed Fish.

...demonstrates a lot of talent, but it's another case of a neophyte filmmaker not recognizing where his true strengths lie

Pic's power lies not in postmodernism but in its take on how rural youths relate to the contemporary scene.
