Where Do We Go Now? Reviews

The lack of flow and coherence in "Where Do We Go Now?'' leaves not only the characters, but also the audience, wondering where to go.

The movie is never quite bold enough to point out the contradiction of Muslims and Christians hating one another, even though they both in theory worship the same god.

Veering from wackiness to horror and then back again is the kind of balancing act that would challenge even the most talented filmmakers, and Labaki, for all her good intentions and daring ideas, just can't swing the shift.

Despite Labaki's unique narrative, flair for the visual and clear humanistic intent, her efforts, much like those of her sisters onscreen, feel like they have achieved very little.

Like the hashish-laced pastries the ladies make to sedate the male population, the film feels like it has been dosed with sugar to mask its distressingly bitter taste.

It feels like a wasted effort that such a strong filmmaker would needlessly water down a serious topic for easier consumption like this.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

There are so many characters in "Where Do We Go Now?" that we never fully invest in them, and when Labaki tries to shift the direction of the movie, we're not sure what she's trying to say about them.

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

Never achieves either the seriousness or playfulness that it alternately seeks.

This is energetic, bursting with sincerity, yet also frustrating and disappointing.

Aims for amusingly hypothetical but becomes offensively, naively silly.

Making a movie about sectarian violence in which the local religious figures are comically powerless, at worst, seems like too easy a path to take. Nothing springs from nothing.

Time passes with a sense that nothing is really happening, until suddenly too much happens all at once.

Labaki never claimed to be NoŽl Coward, but the facile comedy leads to a dilution of the message she strives so strenuously to make.

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

By the time the film takes a glib turn into role-switching farce-as Muslims become Christians and Christians become Muslims-the overall toothlessness of the satire becomes damningly apparent.

The meandering script occasionally has an unpolished feel, confusingly taking too long to flesh out parts of the story while making unsettling swings from comedy to tragedy and back.

A satire in which pathos competes with light comedy and neither quite flourishes.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

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.
