A ramshackle curiosity of a film, poorly made and more admirable in intent than execution.

Drugs, exotic dancers, dodgy deities. This certainly isn't your usual po-faced, worthy Middle Eastern tale.

Part religiopolitical satire, part smalltown sitcom, with a hint of romance, Where Do We Go Now? is pleasingly populated with "characters" and light farce that occasionally breaks out into a movie musical.

... a mess, but a cheerful one.

Austin Chronicle

It's a "what if" story that's hopeful but doesn't ring true.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The movie is set in a remote Lebanese village, but it's all over the map in terms of content and style. The elements never cohere, resulting in a film more admirable for its pacifist yearnings than for its execution.

Even the title holds a surprise.

Sometimes [Labaki] bites off more than she can chew, and the story's anti-war themes turn as heavy-handed and ponderous as the title question suggests.

Although the tone is often lighthearted, the subject matter between Christians and Muslims is more profound.

Labaki's use of abrupt tonal shifts can be jarring, but her narrative is ambitious and anything but typical.

Given recent developments in Egypt, the questions posed by this Arab Spring-themed musical comedy-drama from Lebanon could not feel more apt.

This spirited troupe of women ... makes us citizens of the village, invested in their joys and fears. We grieve with them, under that burning sun, and hope with them for a lasting peace.

The stupidity of violence and...religious hatred are beautifully boiled down into a microcosm of humanity that [director Nadine] Labaki infuses with vibrant moments of laughter, music and an uneering sense of how differently men and women view the world.

If Christopher Hitchens were alive to see this film, he would be nodding in sad agreement at the depiction of violent behaviour fuelled by differences in religion
Mark Kermode
Observer [UK]
June 24, 2012
This bittersweet celebration of motherhood deftly blends wry satire with broad comedy while never losing sight of the tragedy of its subject matter.
Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

The result is beyond disastrous, like some unholy attempt by Adam Sandler to update Lysistrata.

"Where Do We Go Now?" is more interesting than satisfying.

With elements of a musical, a melodrama and a multicultural romance, "Where Do We Go Now?" is as hard to define as the crossroads region where it's set.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

Spirited, upbeat and seasoned with musical sequences, Where Do We Go Now? has an abundance of charm.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It's machine-tooled to raise smiles, swell hearts, and tickle tear ducts, yet it does so with sufficient cross-cultural cred you don't feel too yanked.
