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.

Through the arguments and the sadness and the jealousy, Don't Think Twice remains a quietly jubilant film, celebrating the way improv makes something - a laugh, a family, a partnership, a career - out of nothing.

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.

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.

Don't Think Twice has comedy as its subject, but it is a far more dramatic and perplexing affair than a comic one.

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.

I don't look forward to Mike Birbiglia's films, but whenever I see them, I find I like them.

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.
