Birbiglia masterfully captures the improv vibe.

Don't Think Twice, Mike Birbiglia's second feature film, stands taller than his previous feature, a slender work.

Birbiglia dips one toe into comedy, but he also grounds his film in reality.

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.

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.

Don't Think Twice runs you through a gamut of emotions without any bitterness, only earnestness.

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.

It's a hilarious but moving look at the realities of navigating the stages of adulthood, and one of my favorite films of the year.

"Don't Think Twice" is realistic, the characters multi-layered, and the execution admirable and thought-provokingly engaging.

While Don't Think Twice shies away from the dark and demented impulses of standup, it exposes the uncomfortable realization that change is a necessary evil when it comes to creating great art.

If you are a fan of improv comedy, Don't Think Twice is a movie that was made for you.

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.

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

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.

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.

Both wistful and hilarious, Don't Think Twice is - to borrow from A Chorus Line again - about what we all did/do for love.
