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.

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.

A deeply sincere and literate coming-of-age tale.

[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.

The drama is honest without getting nasty and it's genuinely funny but not at the expense of the characters. Well, not entirely anyway.

While Don't Think Twice is about success, creativity and the struggle with both, it's also an incredibly human movie with a lot of funny moments tossed in to ease that pain.

Don't Think Twice has quite a bit in common with these performances at a structural level. It's an intelligent film with a clear passion for its subject. It just doesn't quite hit the mark.

It's just affable enough to survive a disastrous last 10 minutes.

A low-key drama and a surprisingly funny comedy rolled into one, Birbiglia's film suggests that improv and life have something in common.

August 31, 2016
A heavy air of desperation weighs on "Don't Think Twice." The troupe members all frantically seek validation, recognition and - most importantly - praise from each other, celebrities, students, family and audience members.
