Future '38 can suffer at times from kitsch overkill, even if the playful tone and committed cast makes it a fairly pleasant romp to sit through.
Sadly it doesn't come close to the comedic heights of the classic films it's simulating.
It's an extremely clever comedy riff on cinematic history that should especially please the film buffs among us.
The film's abundance of charm plays into its absurdity, owning it in a way that ensures its lack of self-seriousness isn't misconstrued as a lack of respect for the audience.
As puckishly inventive as it is deliriously cheesy [it'a] perfect puntastic piffle of an entertainment that refuses to take anything seriously, but that still comes through with an enigmatic twist for the ages.
Future '38 is a memorable adventure which perfectly reflects our time, as well as reminisces about the films and sensibilities of the past.
A swell idea harnessed to leaden style and execution, sci-fi comedy Future '38 doesn't take off.
A love letter to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s, Future '38 is a throwback screwball worth seeing.
Future '38 is, hands down, the most original comedy I've seen in recent memory. Definitely catch this one as soon as you can.
It seems Greenberg can write and directly authentically compelling material. It's a shame the rest of the film was such a bore.
A fantastical fever dream of a film, a psychotropic time travel tale told in almost violently colorful tones.
As it stands, I still enjoyed Future '38, but mostly by pretending it was a 2098 parody of a 2017 version of a 1938 comedy set in 2018.
