Nothing more than a series of scenes set in darkened rooms in which grownups argue with and lie to each other. It is a Lifetime movie, only with a better cast.

It could have pulled back the rock to reveal the squirmy things living underneath, but instead all we get is the rock.

A terribly slim, pretentious movie that wallows in the monotonous, far-from- fascinating angst of its self-involved characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

They never lived anywhere: the protagonists of this drama of marital stalemate embody a widespread social institution without ever reminding us of Earth as we know it.

Well acted and designed of a piece [but] too diffident and emotionally murky to elicit a sustained reaction. The movie could have benefited from a more proactive script.

There's nothing we haven't seen before here and done far better in the snappy works of Neil LaBute or Edward Albee.

A terrific performance by Laura Dern is the sole reason to see this pretentious slog through the miserable lives of unlikable people.

Like the movie's title, there doesn't appear to be anybody home in this picture.

A movie as empty as its title. A lot of good acting is going on, but there's nobody home.

Curran shows us characters whose lives have gone stale but doesn't provide sufficient payoff to justify the suffering.

Earnest, overbearing and fully depressing, We Don't Live Here Anymore features a quartet of fine performances that are somewhat undermined by the numbing, one-note tone of the entire enterprise.

The actors are seriously exploring how to make it fresh and meaningful, but the writing binds them to the prosaic as it focuses on sex, confusion and adaptive values.

If emotional tension is what you're after (and all you're interested in), though, We Don't Live Here Anymore is a provocative address for a one-night stand.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

This story is like the shot of the passing train that keeps repeating - it's loud, but it's not going anywhere, and the moment that it's gone, you forget you ever saw it.

Failing to find the cinematic equivalent of Dubus's vertical writing, Curran and Gross's movie strains for truths it never earns.
