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

The film is nicely structured, gently witty, and it boasts an excellent cast

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

It has more laughs than any big-studio comedy I've seen this year, but it's dead serious about the difficulty of creating something collectively in a world where everyone's chasing the spotlight.

The most biting comedy of the summer has nothing to do with talking pets.

Don't Think Twice is about the creeping realization that you might not live up to that dreaded thing called potential or that the mythical big break might never come your way. It's also about learning to be okay with that.

Each actor [is] given multiple moments to shine, all of these recognizable faces bringing each of their respective characters to life with winsomely authentic determination and grace.

Don't think twice, just see it.

Clear-eyed but generous.

Don't Think Twice does a nice job of satirizing this corner of the showbiz world. More than that, it's a celebration of improv, a uniquely American art form.

"Don't Think Twice" manages the neat trick of remaining sweet-natured while letting absolutely no one off the hook.

Birbiglia's penetrating observational skills make Don't Think Twice an exceptional film about both the comedy world and the plight of young professionals who wonder if they've stalled out before even getting into gear.

Paradoxically, "Don't Think Twice" feels both dramatically thin and overstuffed.

A smart, wistful and very funny movie in which six friends weather difficult times but ultimately realize that they do, indeed, have each other's back, for always.

A tiny gem, a delightful film as surprising as it is satisfying.

This sketch of a group of co-workers coming together and potentially falling apart is at once a knowing glimpse into dashed dreams and a skillful portrait of fraying adult friendships.

There are many moments that don't ring true from a narrative standpoint, but they don't detract from the message: Improv is beautiful, difficult, delicate and fleeting, and its practitioners suffer for their art.

'Don't Think Twice' does a beautiful job exploring the myriad ways that comedians exploit their own tragic circumstances to score meaningful laughs.

It's an ensemble film in the truest sense, one that gives each of its well-drawn, interdependent characters their due. Think "The Big Chill" without the college history.

It's a movie that fleshes out the people who entertain us, not with bemusement like a Christopher Guest mockumentary, but with compassion.
