Movie Info

Band Aid, the refreshingly raw, real, and hilarious feature debut from Zoe Lister-Jones, is the story of a couple, Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Ben (Adam Pally), who can't stop fighting. Advised by their therapist to try and work through their grief unconventionally, they are reminded of their shared love of music. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, they decide to turn all their fights into song, and with the help of their neighbor Dave (Fred Armisen), they start a band. A story of love, loss, and rock and roll, Band Aid is a witty and perceptive view of modern love, with some seriously catchy pop hooks to boot.

Critic Reviews for Band Aid

All Critics (66) | Top Critics (20)

  • Full of sarcastic humor, earnest emotion and a phenomenal performance from writer/director/producer/star Zoe Lister-Jones, it hinges on the central relationship. But even with deep-rooted problems, this is a couple worth rooting for.

  • [The] glib, zinger-laden bickering is more wearisome than funny and never adds up to a believable relationship on the rocks.

  • As a performer, Lister-Jones acquits herself well on both the comedic and melodramatic fronts. And the scruffily charming Pally comes across as a hybrid of Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd.

  • It's a terrific debut from Lister-Jones, on all fronts.

  • The film too often struggles to find a balance between being searing and charming; at best, it's a notable curio, one Lister-Jones may well build on for her next feature.

  • I wouldn't call "Band Aid" profound, but it's wiser and deeper than the average pop song, if not by much.
