Standing Still Reviews

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.
April 24, 2006
This is a hit and miss romantic comedy with a few solid laughs and some pretty smart dialogue.

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

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

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 21, 2006
Despite the best efforts of its energetic young ensemble, this soft focus romantic comedy cries out for a sharper edge.
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 18, 2006
Surfing the crowd in Altman-lite style, pic skims the surface entertainingly but goes limp in its stabs at seriousness.
