Critic Reviews for Closing Escrow

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

The obviously improvised proceedings -- at least let's hope they're improvised -- fail to produce the desired laughs, with frequent pauses after punch lines that will only result in lengthy silences.

A sometimes laugh-out-loud send-up of homebuyers' worst instincts, the extreme behavior of real-estate agents and what happens when the certifiably insane save enough for a down payment.

A spoof, sometimes a funny one, and sometimes just plain overkill.

The film would have worked better if it had stuck more closely to real estate as both the source and target of the satire.

If you can watch it without weeping over your own predicament, you'll see some serious talent bursting out.

No matter how ridiculous the characters come off, they're more than just punch lines. In fact, despite their quirks, [they're] improbably endearing.

Audience Reviews for Closing Escrow

Sometimes laugh out loud funny documentary that runs out of steam about half the way through. Wendi McLendon-Covey is hilarious as the racist real estate agent from hell though.

A decent mockumentary with Jonesy and Clemmy from Reno 911. It follows three different couples in their search for the perfect home. Nothing inherently bad about this, some of the actors just weren't that believable in the characters they created. It would be a fun watch if you have ever gone through the house-hunting process.


A very funny mocumentary that never reaches the point of hilarious although it has it's truly funny moments 7 out of 10
