Critic Reviews for All the Real Girls
Undisciplined, unfocused, overimprovised and unevenly acted.
A wise, delicate and immensely touching romance.
Much of the film, which so much wants to seem natural and unforced, comes off as contrived and slightly precious.
The characters in All the Real Girls can seem a little thin ... but the emotions always feel genuine.
There's something missing from this slowly paced story of young love, like a painting that's still waiting for its subject to be dropped in.
Audience Reviews for All the Real Girls
A man pursues his friend's sister, a match frowned upon because of his promiscuous past. Paul Schneider delivers a sensitive portrayal of Paul, and his romantic scenes with Zooey Deschanel are quite charming. What I liked about the film was how relateable that relationship was. Typical of indie films, All the Real Girls is filled with long pauses and understated scenes that fail to state much. I also have several plot questions. I have no idea why Noel chooses the person she chooses in the third act, and because we never see Paul being a rake and he never goes back to his old behavior, it's hard to believe all the rumors about his character flaws. Overall, I think I like this film more than it deserves mainly because the two leads seemed like people I know or could know.
What the hell David Gordon Green? You make the highness and the sitter instead of making more films like this?? This is actually a raw powerhouse film that shows how amazing zooey descahnel and Paul schnieder are. The story is simplistic but the acting and the direction of the film are what makes a contemporary classic. Huge fan of this film!
