Critic Reviews for A Case of You

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (6)

The actors are on their game, with Long digging deeper than he's usually asked to, and Wood showing more restraint than she often does.

A Case Of You's characters and plot points will be familiar to anyone who's seen a movie in which a neurotic urbanite pines for a beautiful girl.

"A Case of You" is perfectly enjoyable as far as indie rom coms go - just not particularly original.

While this unrelentingly midtempo movie milks Brooklyn for its chic, it manages to denude it of its color.

A Case of You is a disappointing romantic comedy that aspires to social relevance until the third act, when it settles for pat Freudian revelations.

Wood makes Birdie approachable enough that Sam's continuing treatment of her as a fantasy-girl, who could only like a fictionalized version of him, grows tiresome as the film progresses.

Audience Reviews for A Case of You

This film could have been so much better. It kind of reminded me of movies like Along Came Polly and the Freddie Prinze Jr. film Down to You. I liked Along Came Polly, much more than this film. This style of the film is off. This feels like a TV sitcom. I felt that the audience track was missing. Also the film needed a better director. I keep thinking if Kevin Smith directed the film, it would be so much better. Everyone in the cast is great, they just need a better director and script.

Not the best. Pretty c grade. Evan reminds me of a younger, cute Drew Barrymore here. Just made me wish I was watching one of her cute rom coms from the 90's! Most of it is a bit sketchy with some stereotypical unlikable supporting characters and idiotic scenes. The romantic ending is nice, and if the rest of the film had been more like it, I might have been more impressed.
