Critic Reviews for Park

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

There are plenty of laughs in the outrageous predicaments and the actors are obviously having a ball.

None of the characters seems particularly believable, except Lake's; she brings some feeling to a thin role. And the campy, "outrageous" comedy is pretty thin, too.

New York Post
Top Critic

Suicide, infidelity, spousal abuse and arrested development are the building blocks of Park a wearisome comedy.

New York Times
Top Critic

It's all harmlessly naughty at the outset, but when it comes to juggling all those characters and their intersecting scenarios, Voelker lacks the dexterity of, say, Robert Altman.

Top Critic

A flotilla of L.A. residents gathers in an unlandscaped recreation area in Baldwin Hills to canoodle, attempt suicide, plot revenge and dig into one another's psyches in writer-director Kurt Voelker's high-spirited if slight comedy, Park.

[Makes] the most of thrifty means to highly entertaining effect.

Audience Reviews for Park

Hella too funny. A must watch if you want a lil of each of such acts like love making and can't get some.

Good simple movie with all of its' cast having come to Jesus moments throughout the movie, it was nice to see a throwback to the old days where movies just relied on good acting, the acting was decent and the movie was mildly entertaining

A little bit of fluff. A cliched look at relationships and self discovery played out during a long lunch hour at a secluded park overlooking Los Angeles. A lawyer and his paramour are discovered by his wife and her friend. A dog groomer discovers the raving beauty he works beside is not for him, but the troubled young woman who tries unsucessfully to commit suicide, just might be. And four twenty-somethings bare their souls and a little bit more to each other and deeply held secrets are revealed. Not exactly Oscar worthy, but mildly entertaining. A bit too predictable, a little hard to swallow, and maybe a little too tame. Still, I watched the whole thing, so there must have been something there. I just can't remember what.
