While Don't Think Twice might not be as hilarious as you'd expect from this cast, it's great to see them flex their muscles with more dramatic material.
November 9, 2018
Bitingly honest, revealing, insightful and hysterical, Twice is an off-kilter comedy that resonates because it feels like an inside road map into the chaotic lives of the featured troupe members utilizing improvisation as their creative tool of trade.

Humorous look at the stalled career of a stand-up comedian.

While it's equal parts funny, poignant and trenchant, the film mostly acts as a pulpit for Birbiglia to vent his frustrations pointedly at the person who eclipsed his career.

Don't Think Twice actually shows Birbiglia to be in the mold of Robert Altman, a naturalistic filmmaker sympathetic enough to show even the "bad" characters in a good light and caustic enough to tarnish the supposed heroes.

The film is not a grand exercise in maturation but in reality.

Altogether, [Don't Think Twice] makes for a full-blooded study of performing and one of the most honest, most love-filled films of the year.
