Overall the movie offers a funny, human take on a wounded person and the gaming subculture that consumes him.

A likably blunt glimpse into the geek microcosm.... Funny, uneven story about a misfit among misfits.

Zero Charisma succeeds in delivering a raw look at an unappreciated idiot who would be king.

This blurring of allegiances creates a certain level of complexity that we don't typically find in comedies; then again, this isn't a typical comedy.

A fun flick about table-top gaming culture and the challenges of being a geek in the modern age.

Zero Charisma is the nerd movie I've been hoping to see for years.

A barbed indie character study that seems perched, like Big Fan, between dark humor and probing psychodrama.

A fascinating portrait of an initially stereotypical mouth-breathing man-child addicted to role-playing games of his own invention.

A consistently entertaining, character-driven comedy set within a community rapidly losing out to online options.

This film comes from a place that is, perhaps to the creators' consternation, legit.

Does for pop culture dorks what Big Fan did for sports obsessives: examines their passion with equal amounts of empathy and satire.

Too much of the film feels like wallowing in unpleasantness.

There's a nugget of truth in this film's depiction of nerd life, as there should be, given that it's produced by Nerdist Industries. It doesn't excuse that fact that it's an ugly, unpleasant viewing experience...

By failing to push their galumphing antihero toward the self-knowledge he so desperately needs, [the directors] rob the film of its emotional stakes.

The Dissolve

Zero Charisma is a comedy by classification, but its cruelties have a way of turning it into a psychodrama inadvertently. The tone is often as abrasive as its hero.

It stops short of leaving its would-be hero in despair, but never finds a reason for those who don't share his fixations to identify with him.
