Movie Info

Paul Schneider (Parks and Recreation) stars as a newly single dad navigating the good, the bad, and the weird of the 30-something singles scene in this whip-smart comedy. When his wife unexpectedly informs him that she wants a divorce, well-meaning but oblivious husband Otto Wall (Schneider) finds himself thrust back into bachelorhood. Cue a hilarious sequence of romantic encounters-from reconnecting with a former crush to online dating-as Otto searches for the real thing amidst a string of one night stands. Directed by the acclaimed writer of Junebug, this sexy farce co-stars Anna Camp, Heather Graham, Amy Sedaris, and Melanie Lynskey. (C) IFC Films

Critic Reviews for Goodbye to All That

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

The movie's tone never quite evens out, but there are still sweet minor-key moments, and some good lines in all that.

December 31, 2014 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

A charming supporting cast fails to invigorate "Goodbye to All That," a relentlessly flat seriocomic take on contemporary relationships marking the directorial debut of "Junebug" scribe Angus MacLachlan.

December 23, 2014 | Full Review…

The film's tone remains playful -- there are even some broad, laugh-out-loud moments involving a sex toy -- but poignant little moments sneak in, hinting at darker, more troubling themes.

December 19, 2014 | Full Review…

Otto Wall, the protagonist of Goodbye to All That, is well-meaning, clumsy and a little dull. The movie embodies his character perfectly.

Top Critic

Despite its flaws, the first feature from "Junebug" writer Angus MacLachlan is a heartfelt, bittersweet and often amusing portrait of early middle-age.

December 18, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's a lot of good awkward fun to be had as the viewer simultaneously laughs at Otto's expense and hopefully commiserates a bit with him.

Audience Reviews for Goodbye to All That

½

A happy husband and dad abruptly discovers that he is surprisingly none of the above and thus has make efforts to redefine himself again. What's going for this: schmarts and plenty. Against: alas, the tone seldoms varies. But you'll see yourself somewhere in here and will smile for that irregardless.
