Critic Reviews for Standard Time (Anything But Love)

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (19)

  • It's downright radical for filmmakers to drop the edgy, been-there sarcasm that infuses many independent films for a full-blown swan dive into fantasy. It would be even better if the fantasy had worked.

  • An appealing, low-budget musical cowritten by and starring Isabel Rose as Billie, whose pluck and talent are tonic -- if as shopworn as her thrift-store threads.

    Dec 11, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Ends up little more than a vanity piece for Rose and an exercise in style over substance for Cary.

  • To borrow a word from another American standard, Anything but Love, is hardly unforgettable. But if you're looking for the movie equivalent of comfort food, then there's something to dig into here.

  • [An] ungainly little movie.

  • Filmed in the colors of newborn Technicolor, plotted as a tribute to the conventions of Hollywood romance, filled with standard songs, it's by and for people who love those kinds of movies.
