Co-lead Ari Graynor gives the sort of breakout performance that the film requires.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 3, 2015
Constantly ducks away from any semblance of adult sexuality, indulging in garish colors and giggle fits.
August 15, 2013
It's a comedy that isn't always funny as it struggles to find the right tone between raunchy and sweet. It celebrates female friendship in a way few movies do, but good intentions don't always make for a good film.

the concept was rife with possibilities that could synergize with Graynor's fresh appeal as well as her rising-star status. Neither the possibilities nor the synergy happens, mainly due to an underdeveloped story.

Sure, there's some ribald humor, and the subject matter is clearly edgy. However, it's really a sweet story of friendship wrapped in a sexy package.

short on laughs and high on vulgarity

For a Good Time, Call... is one of those pleasant surprises sometimes experienced in the cinema when the Gods of Celluloid, reading your attendance as a sign of defeat, take pity and alchemise the material you'd braced yourself to despise.

Tedious and repellent: avoid.
November 2, 2012
If there's one thing more annoying than the dumb mainstream sex comedy, it's the dumb mainstream sex comedy that has aspirations towards indie funk.

November 2, 2012
Colourful direction and sparky performances help make this friendship comedy watchable, although it never seems like a finished film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The film keeps trying to be filthy and outrageous, but is actually rather timid.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 1, 2012
What saves this ultimately charming indie... from its inescapable sitcomishness and an over-reliance on some tired stereotypes is that it does manage genuine cuteness in a realm that has enormous potential to be icky and crude.

Ari Graynor and Lauren Anne Miller are great as the sassy pair and despite a veneer of sex, in truth the film is more about friendship.
November 1, 2012
Disarmingly sweet, defending the girls' enterprise and friendship in the face of all judgment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 1, 2012
Transcends the more pat aspects of its story, connecting in fun fashion by sheer force of personality.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
November 1, 2012
Has emotional authenticity and a decent laugh quotient, but overall enjoyment is marred by general ridiculous and unresolved sub-plots.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 31, 2012
Earns points for focusing on the central female friendship and for its refreshingly frank and breezy attitude to sex, though it's slightly let down by a late-arriving plot development that fails to fully convince.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Think American Pie (without the sight gags) meets Sex and the City (without the gloss) and you've got this, a girls-on-top comedy that's all spit and no polish.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Watching [Travis] add his kitschy touch to such a witless, faux-edgy movie can only be described as a Travis-ty.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
