Top Critic

A laudable but laboured twist on slackerdom.

Total Film

It's somewhat stiffly acted by non-professionals, and its earnestness might leave you with a hankering for the sly humour of mumblecores.

Guardian

The pacing is sometimes overly languid, the script often ponderous and the performances decidedly mixed. But this knowing drama is undoubtedly a laudable effort.
