What lifts Gayby above its sitcom trappings is its emotional generosity and easy warmth, the sense that characters are defined by -- and made funny through -- their aspirations, not their way with a one-liner.

Harris, a talented comic actress who looks more like a real person than a Hollywood facsimile of one, makes every scene she's in shine.

While Jonathan Lisecki is well in tune with his film's niche market, his knack for comedy, both visual and verbal, is universally hilarious.

October 8, 2012
Lisecki gives this story a modest, quip-filled heartbeat; nothing is painted too broadly, and the complications and awkwardness of the situation play out with great warmth.

A fast-paced, often hilarious pic about a woman who choose a gay friend to make her pregnant.

An incredibly funny look at modern relationships and families from a distinct voice.

June 21, 2012
A hilariously bitchy but sweet comedy that serves as Gotham's answer to Portlandia.
June 20, 2012
Lisecki's turned that short into a feature film with the same storyline and actors. Although it's a sweet movie, it's a case of more is not always better.
June 20, 2012
It's the most pleasant surprise I've had so far at this year's festival.
June 20, 2012
Gayby isn't a game-changer, but it is a fantastic first feature for a major new comedy voice.

[Balances] broad comedy and warm-and-fuzzy sentiment.
June 20, 2012
Gayby doesn't break a lot of new ground in the rom-com or parenthood fields, but its agreeable balance of humor and sentiment makes it worth adopting.
October 12, 2012
Your enjoyment of this baby-obsessed queer farce will depend largely upon your tolerance for seeing yet another group of gay urbanites incessantly sniping about it all.
October 11, 2012
"Gayby" is too diffuse to have much pop when it comes to the topics at hand: love and friendship, and how unconventional modern permutations might help rewrite the script of romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
