In her three years in the garment industry, Maher may have learned her way around a sewing room but she picked up nothing about a movie set.

Garmento has nothing going for it.
August 8, 2003
At times, Garmento looks like the real deal, but underneath the label, it's just another designer rip-off.
August 7, 2003
As a satire, Garmento is toothless. As a comedy, it's funny only in spurts.
July 4, 2003
This shaky satire set in New York's garment district is consistently undone by an inconsistency of tone and less-than-assured directing and acting.
June 13, 2003
Despite MacNichol's sneaky verve and Thornton's sly subtlety the lead characters swiftly fade and shrink.
June 6, 2003
Maher's feature debut has amusing moments, but falls apart as quickly as a cheap knockoff.
June 5, 2003
A toothless, dated Seventh Avenue satire with shaky script, direction and acting.
June 5, 2003
A film that would be twice as funny if it tried half as hard.
June 5, 2003
Without an assured character at its center, the movie quickly collapses in a heap of moldy clichs and contrived (and not especially funny) situations.
June 3, 2003
Maher shows how commercial buzz gives way to infectious, free-floating greed, but the story has too many characters, about whom we know too little.
May 13, 2003
Despite an excellent start, great characters, and a perfect niche mood, Garmento never fully capitalizes on its potential.
May 13, 2003
What is Garmento but a lame approximation of sexier and deadlier works like Altman's The Player?
