...a lot more poignant than most of Hollywood's big-budget, star-studded takes on the subject.

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

Good Dick manages to be a squirmily charming romantic movie, chockablock with surprising details.

Good Dick carries its messed-up, highly improbable premise so lightly and gracefully that it ultimately comes off as a sweet, plausible and curiously grounded love story.

Shadows on the Wall

The characters are sharp and their dilemmas feel honest, even if we never get all the information we crave.

In spite of a title, and much dialogue, likely to send Aunt Edna into convulsions, Good Dick is the week's best film.

The Kevin Smith-esque dude banter might place Dick in a US indie tradition, but there's also an honesty to the script and performances that's genuinely original and touching.

A well-meaning comedy that undoes all its good work in the final act, Good Dick would've been better served with further development in the Sundance Lab. That said, Jason Ritter delivers a breakthrough performance that saves the film.

Good Dick' is enjoyable as a cute, playful indie - it's just not as perceptive about female psychology as it sets out to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/6

This entertains enough to get by, marking Palka and Ritter as talents to watch.

October 2, 2008
Delightfully offbeat indie romcom with impressive direction, strong performances and a superbly written script that's by turns creepy, funny, weird and ultimately moving.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Palka has created two very troubled, comic people who find links through kinks. Takes all sorts.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
Anton Bitel

If peeking in on these two characters' most deep-seated dysfunctions might seem as intrusive as stalking and as exploitative as scopophilia, then Palka is at pains to expose the all too human yearnings that underlie both activities.
Amber Wilkinson
Eye for Film
June 13, 2008
Despite dealing with some very heavy issues Palka has a surprisingly light touch, levening the more bleak moments with some rich, dark comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Not your traditional boy-meets-girl story, but it does an excellent job of delivering two fairly unique characters trapped in a seriously strange relationship.
