Twenty minutes or so of cuts would probably have helped the movie pack a more potent punch.

They ought to have cut both the film and the marriage a little shorter.

The incisive moments of recognizable humanity, though, are outnumbered by those of awkward obviousness.

Flannel Pajamas is so gorged with gab it feels like a filibuster.

Better to rent Scenes From a Marriage, Manhattan or My Dinner With Andre and stay home -- flannel pajamas optional.

In his sophomore feature, Lipsky doesn't feel the need to pump the movie with showy visual tricks. You don't even know he's there most of the time, which is probably a compliment.

Flannel Pajamas is a sharply observed dissection of a couple's relationship, from blind date to marriage to difficulties over everything from whether to get a dog to when to have a baby.

This is all quite fascinating.

Maybe Lipsky's been too direct in his screenplay; he makes us feel like informed witnesses to their relationship rather than participants. Which means, we spend most of the movie thinking, just break up already, please.

It's a harsh look at a love that seems good until it isn't any more... and frankly, I got tired of both of these people long before they got tired of each other.

This is the kind of introspective drama in which a determined pair of young, very fine actors and a strong filmmaker put everything on the line to explore emotional truth wherever it exists.

[Writer/director] Lipsky has something to say about the impossibility of human beings to love each other, but his language is that of an amateur playwright who does not know when he is only repeating cliches.

Both Nicholson and Kirk are terrific actors, but the script limits them and their performances.

Kirk and Nicholson provide solid acting throughout the movie. Lipsky's writing is frequently original. However, the overall sense of this film is that it lacks credibility.

With "Flannel Pajamas" Lipsky has written an excellent off-Broadway play, not a film.

[Star Julianne] Nicholson does remarkable work in an unsympathetic role, helped by [director Jeff] Lipsky's fine control of his characters.

It's as close to what the disintegration of a real-life relationship looks like as you'll ever see onscreen.

Sometimes a movie improves on second viewing and I liked Flannel Pajamas better when I screened it again.

By the time these two must decide whether or not to stay together, we've given up on the whole process entirely.
