We Got This Covered

Terri is a very funny film with strong performances and equally strong direction.

Whereas Jacobs père has been most concerned for the past four decades with using cinema as an instrument for exploring the mechanics and boundaries of visual perception, Jacobs fils is less a mad scientist than a misfit bard.

...An enjoyable coming-of-age film but a few of the darker sequences and the general feeling that you've seen this story before might keep it from being a larger success.

Like its eponymous protagonist, Terri sits awkwardly outside mainstream expectations, but is all the more appealing for it.

Funny and perky but unlike most Fox Searchlight films, never saccharine.

What Culture

A winningly understated performance from John C. Reilly and a potentially star-making turn from lead Jacob Wysocki help place Terri's firm finger on the pulse of the often senselessly cruel high school experience.

Terri was shot in just a couple locations on a tiny budget, but it sense of heightened reality and terrific performances make it a strangely touching story.

Lest you think that you've already seen every possible variation on the outsider-nerd story, Terri keeps plenty of surprises up its pit-stained sleeves.

Against pretty tall odds, Azazel Jacobs' Terri turns out to be a very good movie with a great deal of charm.

John C. Reilly does what he always seems to do: He energizes, and thus steals, nearly every scene he's in.

Jacobs deftly mixes dark humor with moments of profundity that often take you by surprise.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Jacobs' pic might not be the most profound, but it's enjoyable, humorous, thoughtful, earnest and it has a feel for what it's like to be an adolescent geek.

Jacob Wysocki infuses his performance in the title role with precisely that same duality, turning Terri into an oversized portrait of adolescence -- so naive yet so wise, strangely believable and believably strange.

Its charms feel somewhat calculated, but this reflective tale of outsider solitude has enough humor and poignancy to win admirers.

A story that quietly captures both the general horror and the faint possibility of hope that distinguish teenage life.

NOW Toronto

Director Azazel Jacobs delivers a naturalistic and entirely absorbing drama about a boy on the verge of self-awareness, capturing the awkward horrors and unexpected surprises that make up everyone's adolescence.

A sweet and subtle comedy about the awkwardness of adolescence.

Terri is a broken-hearted dramedy about what it really means to be a misfit (and not the actually-a-smoking-hottie kind of misfit seen in Glee).
