April 22, 2013
Despite strong performances from Keanu Reeves, Bojana Novakovic and Adelaide Clemens, Generation Um... doesn't give us enough of a story to keep us fully invested throughout its running time.

Reeves is front and center in a thinly sketched narrative anchored by little other than his presence ...

Generation Um... devolves into a heap of sub-American Beauty profundities and strained confessionals ...

The levels of insight provided into the characters are exactly commensurate with any conceivable viewer's interest in learning more about these nonentities.

"Um" winds up as empty as its mean streets are phony.

It's a patience-tester, salvaged only a smidge by Reeves's uncanny ability to remain perfectly still while his co-stars strap on acting school rocket packs and pinball around the frame.

Director Mark L. Mann seems to be searching for the meaning in aimlessness, and in lowered expectations. But too often the narrative left me feeling the titular "um."

April 26, 2013
a bafflingly irreverent, meandering character study that resurrects Reeves' trademark inscrutable delivery, providing the actor with his most characteristic performance in years. But that's not quite enough to salvage the movie.

The point of the movie seems to be: like, inarticulation, or something?

What does it add up to? Um ... I have no idea and don't really care.

Neither the film, nor the film within the film, hold our attention. Bummer, Keanu.

While Reeves brings more depth to his character than the script warrants, the film overall lacks compelling characters and winds up depressing instead of profound.
May 2, 2013
A slapped-together sub-mumblecore exercise that at times suggests a feature-length expansion of 2010′s "Sad Keanu" meme
May 2, 2013
Meandering and affected, this tedious character study is as aimless as the lives it depicts.
May 7, 2013
A single, plotless day in New York in the company of Keanu Reeves feels like a life sentence.
