Adult Life Skills Reviews

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.

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

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.

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.

By the time I had finished watching the aggressively whimsical British comedy "Adult Life Skills," my eyes had rolled so far back in my head I could barely focus.

The film's key dramatic scene lacked the impact it might have had with a better build-up.

"Adult Life Skills" is a relentlessly quirky British comedy-drama that demonstrates why more is not always more.

Tunnard's movie ends up looking both too silly and overly mawkish.

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

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

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

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

A cheesy rehash of numerous stunted-adolescent dramedies.
