Marianna Palka's quirky indie debut centred on two dysfunctional loners is hit and miss, but has enough originality to see it through.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dysfunction beguiles in Good Dick, a perverse romantic comedy whose coarse title belies its tender heart.

    Oct 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.

    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.

    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!

    I understand why, but I really couldn't like the female character in this movie. I don't want to ruin anything, but I think even given the context of the film they could have made her more likable somehow. It was over the top. Tom Arnold was a surprise, Eric Edelstein was excellent and should hopefully benefit from a career bump after, and Jason Ritter redeemed himself a bit (for me) with this one..
