I would recommend Adult Life Skills to fans of Jodie Whitaker and Dr. Who, but there are undoubtedly other films about loss that is easier for you to connect emotionally.

As adorkable as it is, Adult Life Skills, like its lead Anna, never quite takes off.

Jodie Whittaker's performance humanizes the film's troubled protagonist better than the story.

It's interesting territory but tackled with insufferable tweeness and an overload of tiresome quirk.

A cheesy rehash of numerous stunted-adolescent dramedies.

The film's key dramatic scene lacked the impact it might have had with a better build-up.
January 17, 2019
Tunnard lays on the quirks so excessively that the constant eccentricity - goofy attire, silly toys, wacky anatomical gags - upstages the more richly human and satisfying material.

The film uses the grieving process to lend the proceedings a sense of unearned emotional gravitas.

June 26, 2016
Expanded from writer/director Rachel Tunnard's Bafta-nominated short, the film itself feels hopelessly stretched.

This is one of those so-called British comedies that is not remotely clever or amusing, even in the rare moments when you can decipher what comes out of the mouths of actors who sound like they could be from Mars.

Heartbreaking, hilarious and altogether refreshing comedy.

Does a brilliant job capturing that specific moment in time when you're clinging to just a little bit more fun before succumbing to adulthood, without realizing you maybe already have.
January 16, 2019
Rachel Tunnard's feature debut, Adult Life Skills, showcases an impressive performance from Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker.

January 18, 2019
The premise of Adult Life Skills isn't remarkable or ground-breaking, but its execution is near impeccable and the result is a film that is quietly poignant, quirkily endearing, and humorous without seeming to try too hard.
