  • Surely some of the young woman's porn videos would make better viewing.

    November 14, 2008 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Alternately compelling and dramatically limp, the film scores points for exploring unfamiliar territory but lacks the emotional depth to make some very strange behavior believable.

    October 18, 2008
  • A short and sweet anti-romantic comedy, Good Dick puts together a heav ily depressed young woman with a homeless clerk who rents her porn at a Los Angeles video store.

    October 17, 2008 | Rating: 3/4
  • As irritatingly monosyllabic as its characters, this indie 'romance' -- the quote marks aren't an accident -- feels over-workshopped and false at almost every point.

    October 17, 2008 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Dysfunction beguiles in Good Dick, a perverse romantic comedy whose coarse title belies its tender heart.

    October 17, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Ultimately, the body part that gets the most play is the mouth, with the hyphenate and her personal-professional partner Ritter trading the sort of sub-Cassavetes banter that screams self-written acting exercises.

Audience Reviews for Good Dick

    This movie trumps Punch-Drunk Love for strangest on-screen couple in a movie I've seen in recent months.

    Very odd yet I completely loved it. Indie flick that doesn't seem so indie... Love the storyline, even though it's a bit crude, and am pleased with the results. Jason & Marianna were quite believable in their roles.
    Leigh R Super Reviewer

    It was enjoyable at a distance. It's not something I'd watch over and over, but I'm glad I gave it a watch!

    REALLY REALLY weird romance flick
