Enough Said Reviews

December 11, 2013
These are the subjects that Holofcener does exceptionally well -- the myopia, vanity and insecurities of the moderately privileged.

Enough Said is Nicole Holofcener's best yet - it's what we wanted from the new Bridget Jones book, a smart comedy about dating in your 50s.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 27, 2013
Enough Said is a romantic comedy about hurting the people you love, who you want to love - and making mistakes that may be impossible to recover from.

September 27, 2013
In the terse space film provides, Holofcener capturing her characters deftly. We know their fears, needs, lonesomeness. We trust the cars they drive, the food they eat, the rooms they keep tidy, or not.

What a concept -- an adult romantic comedy that's equally wise and playful, with mold-breaking performances by James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

September 27, 2013
The easy chemistry between Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini is wonderfully charming - you're rooting for them even as the falsehoods pile up and the poison begins to flow.

The jarring shifts between effective drama and failed humor make watching Enough Said a bumpy and sometimes frustrating journey.

Holofcener delivers her most confident character comedy to date - a work of deceptively informal mastery - and Gandolfini's gentle performance just about breaks your heart.

September 26, 2013
A small-scale movie made much bigger by achingly good performances from Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini in one of his final roles.

September 26, 2013
I can't say enough about the way "Enough Said" keeps its scintillating sense of humor as it grows deeper and more affecting.
September 26, 2013
Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini have made only a handful of films in recent years, and they're delightful together. They contribute lived-in, vanity-free portraits of fully realized individuals hoping against hope for a new chance at lifelong love.
September 26, 2013
Something in the combination of Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini doesn't seem right, or perhaps it just doesn't look right.

September 26, 2013
Feisty, funny, fizzy and deeply wise, "Enough Said" sparkles within and without, just like the rare gem that it is.

"Enough Said" is a precious little jewel of a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 26, 2013
What makes this material work so well is the chemistry between Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini; the terrific scene in which they embark on their first date is delightfully awkward and amusing.

September 26, 2013
Louis-Dreyfus manages the difficult trick of keeping us engaged with her character, even while driving us crazy. She's never been better.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
September 26, 2013
Despite the movie's limitations, it's very satisfying to watch Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini enjoy each other's company on screen, as characters, because it's satisfying to watch them enjoy each other's company as performers.

September 26, 2013
Holofcener elicits relaxed and relatable work from the entire cast, and she displays a strong ear for the patter of upper-middle-class passive-aggression.
September 26, 2013
Gandolfini's achingly honest work is at odds with the rest of Enough Said, which should have been titled Not Enough Said.

September 21, 2013
The bittersweet feeling of seeing James Gandolfini soon gives way to appreciation for one of his best and most unusual roles: he plays a regular guy.

September 20, 2013
Enough Said is a wonderful movie, observant and hilarious and full of sad and beautiful truths ...
September 20, 2013
Gandolfini ... allows us to forget the ugly temper and sadistic tendencies of his most famous creation while lending Louis-Dreyfus some of his teddy-bear warmth.

Best is Gandolfini's sensitive-guy-in-a-bulky-physique performance. He was a marvelously versatile actor, and, with the knowledge that he is gone, it's doubly poignant to watch him here.

If the sum of Enough Said is less than its parts - and really, the midlife challenges here are pretty small potatoes - the movie does have some lovely grace notes that add up to an astute observation of the symbiosis of single mothers and their daughters.
September 19, 2013
James Gandolfini, in one of his final roles before his death in June, is so sweetly funny in this rueful comedy that you wish he had been given more chances to tap his talent for the lighter side.

I miss the ensemble fullness and quirky pacing of Holofcener's Friends with Money and Please Give, but there are enough dissonances, parentheticals, and curlicues to remind you why her movies are like no other's.
September 19, 2013
A wry and moving look at a time in life that tends to get short shrift in U.S. cinema.
September 18, 2013
What a treat it is to discover a totally new actor inside one we already loved. And how sad to know we won't see that from him again.

An utterly delightful, grown-up romantic comedy

September 18, 2013
On first viewing, I conclude that "Enough Said" is irresistible, and demands a second (and third) viewing right away.
September 18, 2013
One of the pleasures of "Enough Said" is watching Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini, two well-known performers only Holofcener would think of putting together, come alive both as individuals and the two halves of a relationship.

September 18, 2013
Although Enough Said never really surmounts its TV sitcom style and structure, the director provides a nuanced entertainment that is enjoyable.

What happens when the things that you once found charming start driving you crazy? Many love stories address that question, but Ms. Holofcener tilts it a few degrees.

[Louis-Dreyfus] has wonderful chemistry with Gandolfini, whose Albert is warmly sympathetic, ruefully amusing, and ultimately hurt ...

September 18, 2013
It's about something we didn't often see Gandolfini play - a self-deprecating, sensitive, funny and socially uncertain guy.

The good kind of fall movie - intelligent, literate and entertaining, deserving of praise without ever nakedly angling for awards. Prizes would be nice, but the best result would be for the powers that be to give Holofcener more money to make more films.
September 17, 2013
While most film romances feel like a fait accompli, Enough Said's tentative fumblings toward bliss require, and merit, fighting for; its wanderings are never less than pleasant and its final moments pack surprising emotional power.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 17, 2013
As always in Holofcener's films, people in Enough Said say terrible things to each other. You hear them and think, No one would ever say that in real life-until you recognize that yes, of course they would.
September 17, 2013
With its heartfelt performances, intelligent writing and subtle humor, this is easily one of the most perceptive and engaging movies of the year.

Gandolfini plays the ultimate gentle giant whose underlying sweetness finally gets its due.

September 16, 2013
What matters is Gandolfini, whose languid, burry diction and Buddha-like poise set the simplest lines and deeds spinning with life-worn worlds of feeling.
September 12, 2013
It shows us how rare love is - and how we need to grab it and not let it go.

September 10, 2013
That's a fairly contrived sitcom scenario, but Holofcener bends it into a loose, lightly funny meditation on divorce, getting older, and impending empty-nest syndrome. Also, yes, Gandolfini is terrific.

September 9, 2013
While the conversation sparkles and amuses as ever, there are indications here that Holofcener's uniquely perceptive voice has begun to calcify somewhat into a familiar house style.
September 9, 2013
A winning comic romance with a wonderful regular guy performance by the late James Gandolfini.

You care, maybe even identify, but also wish they would shut up.
