Garmento Reviews

October 2, 2003
Garmento has nothing going for it.
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 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.

What is Garmento but a lame approximation of sexier and deadlier works like Altman's The Player?
