[An] uneven but ultimately winning comedy ...
No wonder the Martians never came. There's no intelligent life here.
The film's narrative simplicity can be charming or frustrating, depending on your feelings about awkward dialogue and overreacting actors.
The film wastes several talented performers with its low-key, rambling humor and one-dimensional characters.
There are a lot of funny people in "Brave New Jersey," but the movie is not very funny.
Lambert aims for gentle, Lake Wobegon-ish nostalgia, but the jokes never land, the undifferentiated small town confers no sense of location, and its eccentrics aren't particularly weird.
In a place where it doesn't seem like there isn't much to be excited about at first, Lambert proves otherwise by showing how the secrets we keep can make us just as unknown to one another as the aliens from above.
Brave New Jersey is consistently close to maximizing its premise but never coming through.
Brave New Jersey is an absurd comedy about the reaction to the War of the Worlds radio broadcast.
Brave New Jersey isn't bad, but it is extremely predictable.
This is a fun, fluffy bonbon of a film.
Disappointingly tepid take on the panic provoked by Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds' radio broadcast.
