Completely disposable ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 26, 2014
A film that fails to make the most of a good cast and a great premise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 26, 2014
A bland and baffling oddity ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 26, 2014
The stars play strangers on an odd road trip who are meant to be finding things out about each other: if you were put next to either of them on a plane, you would quickly regret your seating assignment.

February 20, 2014
Constantly screws up even its own mid-sized ambitions.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 18, 2013
a far-fetched story, told in a rather unappealing way.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 12, 2013
Despite some amusing lighthearted moments, the film stumbles when it attempts to be more profound.
May 10, 2013
Arthur Newman is overwhelmed with arty ambitions and a heavy-handed acting style. Ultimately, all the weight prevents the film from taking off and soaring.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 29, 2013
Obviously the theme of "Arthur Newman" is the American dream of starting over, but Johnston's screenplay hits it so obviously that it loses its resonance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 27, 2013
A strange film about dysfunctional people directed with good pace by Dante Ariola in his feature film debut highlighted by fine performances by Colin Firth and Emily Blunt.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 27, 2013
Academy-award winner Colin Firth seems to be doing someone a favor by agreeing to play Walter Avery/Arthur Newman.
Full Review | Original Score: C
April 26, 2013
Ariola can't keep the proceedings moving forward, wallowing in the blue mood for far too long. It makes a decent movie with something to share about the exhaustion of defense mechanisms into a slog that leaves its actors high and dry.

April 26, 2013
An offbeat, sometimes self-congratulatory road movie romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 26, 2013
Firth and Blunt give life (and flawless American accents) to this restrained, and occasionally bland, road trip flick.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 26, 2013
Firth's performance alone would have been enough to hail this film by director Dante Ariola. Toss in an equally powerful performance by Blunt, and the film turns to a masterwork of acting.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 26, 2013
Often-somber drama has language, sex, drinking.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 26, 2013
They embark on one of those maundering, life-lessony odysseys that filmmakers love but audiences rarely do.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
April 26, 2013
This is a decidedly minor effort, directed by Dante Ariola with a bland, generic eye, missing the pathos of interesting drama and the charm of quality romantic cinema.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 26, 2013
One of those many indies that exist to give actors a chance to go slumming.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
April 26, 2013
Well-acted but ultimately unmemorable ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
