June 24, 2005
An ill-defined mishmash of cliches, with poorly sketched characters and leaden dialogue.

The only more apropos title might have been: Standing Still While Talking.

Relentlessly shallow.

Don't send a gift. Send your regrets. This is one wedding invitation that can clearly, safely be declined.

If The Big Chill and American Wedding had a love child, it might look something like Standing Still.

April 21, 2006
The aptly named Standing Still, about postcollegiate 20-somethings, has the dramatic momentum of a daisy-picking toddler.

There's just simply not one iota of originality to this exceedingly superficial and charm-deprived ensemble film. It doesn't help that most of the characters come across as entitled, navel-gazing twits without a smidgen of depth.

Standing Still wants to be an honest, earnest look at the difficulties of growing up and moving on, but it remains stuck in such a fantasy-laden milieu that the characters never feel particularly real, and their problems seem phony and arbitrary.

April 18, 2006
Surfing the crowd in Altman-lite style, pic skims the surface entertainingly but goes limp in its stabs at seriousness.
April 20, 2006
The script (by Matthew Perniciaro and Timm Sharp) is trite, and the direction so flat that every scene looks like it was shot in a broom closet, but the bright young cast makes things more bearable than they should be.
April 21, 2006
Despite the best efforts of its energetic young ensemble, this soft focus romantic comedy cries out for a sharper edge.
April 21, 2006
A movie as inert as its title.

The efforts of an attractive and accomplished cast ensure that director Matthew Cole Weiss' feature debut is neither as dull nor as insufferably smug as it could easily have been.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 25, 2006
An independent, dialogue-heavy film that from the looks of it was made more with fun and passion than money.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 24, 2006
This is a hit and miss romantic comedy with a few solid laughs and some pretty smart dialogue.
October 29, 2005
A little gem of a movie - characters you just don't want to leave. Van Der Beek is good.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
June 7, 2005
There's enough good humor to mask the pain and sometimes that's as telling a statement as you can make about young people making the transition to young adults.

April 25, 2006
The Swiss-quartz comic timing of the film's ensemble cast makes its neurotic characters more compelling than your average cinematic slackers.
May 8, 2008
...a progressively endearing effort that boasts several superb performances and a brisk, downright fun sensibility.
