April 16, 2013
Cinematography is pretty, and Mortensen is always watchable; but this is a slog to say the least.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 25, 2012
A low-energy Argentinian thriller that hasn't got a clue what it should do with Viggo Mortensen's reliably committed performance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 29, 2013
A character study can't get away with this little character, and a campy identity-swap thriller can't get away with being this po-faced.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 21, 2013
Everybody Has a Plan isn't overburdened so much as stretched pitifully thin, and the double-the-fun result is closer to the dueling-Elvises vehicle Kissin' Cousins than, say, Dead Ringers.

March 16, 2013
Ana Piterbarg's handsome, if uninvolving, film privileges mood over narrative and dumb brooding over character.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 22, 2013
A curious film that has a few fine moments and builds up to an interesting crescendo, but the plot is patchy with many things unexplained, leaving us indifferent
June 22, 2013
A rather disabled story built on a rather thin concept of twins swapping lives
May 31, 2013
Everybody Has A Plan possesses the film noir elements that might have worked for Robert Mitchum in the Fifties but writer/director Ana Piterbarg lacks the confidence and conviction to pull it off.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 21, 2013
Hats off to Viggo Mortensen. The actor pulls off playing identical twins in this Argentinian thriller - which never quite lives up to his talents.

September 5, 2017
An Argentinian life-swap thriller with Viggo Mortensen playing twins? Sounds promising - but Everybody Has A Plan doesn't quite go according to plan.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 1, 2013
When the presence of the mighty Viggo Mortensen in a dual role - and speaking perfect Spanish! - can't save your movie from mediocrity, then you know you're in trouble.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 28, 2013
The epitome of 'blah.'
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 24, 2013
Wanna see/hear Viggo Mortensen get his Spanish on? That's a big part of the potential interest for Everybody Has a Plan, given the otherwise slow, dangling drama of its assumed-identity conceit.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 7, 2013
It's frustrating that the film is so relentlessly dull, drifting through the story without a sense of purpose.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 20, 2012
...a blatant misfire that's sure to disappoint even the most ardent Mortensen fan...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 21, 2013
[Mortensen] plays the most lackluster pair of identical twins the movies have ever conceived.
Full Review | Original Score: C
October 31, 2017
Directed by Ana Piterbarg, the film is moody and often beautiful, entering an almost lost world. However, it is also beset with pomposity and heaviness that make it as sluggish as the muddy delta where much of it is set.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 3, 2013
Piterbarg works hard to mute the plot's more fanciful elements. If fact, she ends up going too far in the wrong direction, turning this into an underpowered thriller instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 19, 2013
Even Viggo Mortensen's movingly enigmatic performance as identical twins can't help first-time Argentinean director Ana Piterbarg decide whether she is making an existential tone poem or a brutish thriller.
