A low-key comedy of errors whose leads' underplayed oomph bolsters the uneven scenario.
While it certainly has its moments, it remains frustratingly one-note, too cool to really commit to the screwball farce the premise is crying out for, and too enamored with picking off easy targets to draw real blood.
Fits and Starts is an entertaining but forgettable tale of two married writers trying to find middle ground.
The director displays a firm control of all the elements in this, her first feature, promising, we hope, even greater cinematic treasures to come.
Fits and Starts is a hilarious interpretation of modern artistry.
Fits and Starts sometimes seems unable to handle character, story, and motivation at the same time.
Fits and Starts ultimately glows through Cenac's unique charisma.
An indie version of those movies where a bad night keeps escalating, like After Hours or Adventures in Babysitting. Only since it's about a bunch of pretentious artists, the only escalating danger is smugness.
