Critic Reviews for Harmony and Me

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

Represents much of what is wonderful and fresh about the recent wave of ultra-low-budget American independent filmmaking.

Austin, Texas, has never looked more unlovely, and its residents more clueless, than in Harmony and Me, a funny, wry mumblecore comedy by Bob Byington.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

In a flat, dry affect, the movie sings the breakup blues.

Despite the film's sketchy aesthetic and barely animate lead, its tone is carefully contrived: I'll wager no one in your circle is as dryly funny or spontaneously surreal as Harmony's nonsupport group.

Harmony is a finely tuned comedy, complete with precisely scripted jokes and comic set pieces that swerve toward the playfully perverse.

Time Out
Top Critic

Slight, indifferently shot, and entirely lacking in ballast, Harmony and Me's sole justification for being is that it's consistently very funny.

Audience Reviews for Harmony and Me


A mumblecore-ish debut feature from writer-director Bob Byington that's far less interested in oblique conversational navel-gazing than in dry humor.

Enjoyed this much more than I expected to... it's nice to see ultra low-budget film making not suck. Complete with Nick Offerman cameo.

This is a surprisingly hilarious indie about a guy trying to get over a breakup. That's about it as far as plot goes. The movie just follows the poor schlubs misadventures, and there is a fine comic payoff in nearly every scene. Here's Harmony's idea of an acceptable eulogy to his departed boss: "He was often unkind to me and it didn`t seem like tough love, like he was trying to inspire me. It seemed more like simple habitual unkindness. I don`t think my memory of him will sustain anything else. Oh, and, uh, he was a pedophile." Funny, no? I`m not sure if this movie would appeal to everyone. "Harmony and Me" is extremely low budget, relentlessly deadpan and I can not figure out who the "Me" in the title is, but I laughed my head off. 4 stars. (Instant Watch on Netflix.)
