If you are a fan of improv comedy, Don't Think Twice is a movie that was made for you.
November 13, 2017
Humorous look at the stalled career of a stand-up comedian.
Full Review | Original Score: B
November 4, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 17, 2017
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.
September 12, 2017
Don't Think Twice has comedy as its subject, but it is a far more dramatic and perplexing affair than a comic one.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
August 28, 2017
The film is not a grand exercise in maturation but in reality.
August 18, 2017
Mostly, it's like a lo-fi cover of Morrissey's "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful." Kind of whiny, kind of mean, and kind of true.
August 1, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: A
June 30, 2017
Even when Birbiglia's storylines takepredictable turns, he finds the most discomforting way to make those turns. And yet none of the anxiety or awkwardness feels forced.
Full Review | Original Score: B
June 20, 2017
Both wistful and hilarious, Don't Think Twice is - to borrow from A Chorus Line again - about what we all did/do for love.
June 8, 2017
A poignant treatise upon friendship, loyalty, ambition and regret.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 29, 2017
A finely-crafted ensemble piece.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 16, 2017
The film is nicely structured, gently witty, and it boasts an excellent cast
January 19, 2017
I don't look forward to Mike Birbiglia's films, but whenever I see them, I find I like them.
January 18, 2017
Don't Think Twice a funny film about very funny people, but finds areas in life that aren't funny and shows the impact that it can have on even the most unexpected people.
December 29, 2016
One of the funniest, warmest and best movies of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
December 29, 2016
Don't Think Twice depicts the travails of a longstanding improv troupe in New York City and it does so with the sort of exacting specificity only possible from a filmmaker who understands that world intimately.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
December 29, 2016
A deeply sincere and literate coming-of-age tale.
December 29, 2016
[It's] a handsome looking indie that may be too truthful to have wide appeal, but should be a must for anyone looking for a smart and revealing showbiz story that at its heart is wholly -- and unapologetically -- human.
December 15, 2016
The drama is honest without getting nasty and it's genuinely funny but not at the expense of the characters. Well, not entirely anyway.
