(Gerwig's) willingness to hold absolutely nothing back deserves mad respect and can't help but make a viewer feel guilty for finding it all quite exasperating.

Aiming for lightness but landing with a thud, "Frances Ha" is a well-meaning blunder.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 5, 2013
This is very minimalist storytelling much of which feels improvised in front of the camera. The film is more of a character situation than a character story.

Despite Gerwig's natural appeal and talent as a performer, Frances' self-absorption and flakiness begin to grate.

Gerwig dances the Millennial Limbo

The movie's a love letter to an actress and her character, but by the end you may feel like an intervention is more in order.

Overall, Frances Ha is a rom-com without much rom, alternating between short blackout-sketch scenes and long semi-improvised conversations.

"Frances Ha"? More like Frances Bah!
May 14, 2013
For all of Gerwig's energy, there's not much forward momentum here, apart from a series of transitional apartments.

Baumbach's acerbic wit seems to have been diluted by the watery Gerwig, who seems to have no flavor whatsoever...like viewing the outtakes from a movie you don't want to see.

This is an odd film (creepier than it knows), and even if you feel the atmospheric company of Dunham-ism, with a little of Whit Stillman, Henry Jaglom, and Woody Allen, the core influence on Noah Baumbach's film is fifty years older or more.

Frances Ha is not the worst film of the year. That would be Snitch. However, it is the most obnoxious film so far.

Months of Frances' life pass in minutes, yet those minutes feel like an eternity, thanks to non-action and uninspired editing.

February 20, 2014
Sweet without being saccharine and wrenching without being devastating. Frances Ha is a film of many small surprises, but they contain big, satisfying rewards.

Exuberant and disarming.
July 25, 2013
Gerwig's last jaunt to Europe was in Woody Allen's feeble and disjointed To Rome With Love, and even Allen himself might acknowledge that here she is despatched across the Atlantic in a far more successful cause.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Frances Ha is endearing, kind and, in many ways, Noah Baumbach's best movie to date.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
May 15, 2013
Frances Ha is likely going to appear as one of Baumbach's most accessible and joyous works...it marks an exciting new period in the filmmaker's oeuvre and one that will hopefully yield many more collaborations with the endearing...Greta Gerwig.

June 7, 2013
There's a thin line between comedy and tragedy, and Greta Gerwig walks it remarkably well.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 12, 2012
One of the sweetest and funniest films of the year. Frances Ha is a wonderful story about growing up, staying young, about love, life, friendship and what happens to it all over time.
