Her Reviews

Anyway, if Jonze's concern is presumably with humanity's future and fate, Samantha is largely a diversion, a gimmick.

Had Samantha taken a downward spiraling turn toward the HAL 9000 spectrum of robots, this movie could have been exciting.

I found the movie tedious and un-engaging.

So it is with Her, which had me rolling my eyes so much, they threatened to come loose and rattle about in my skull like a pair of gory marbles.

We need more subplots. (Even just one.) Instead we get a life sentence of staring at Phoenix's face while the actor, as skilfully as he can, goes through the 12 steps of disenchantment in his one-man LA therapy classes.

...the film's critical fans-seem to think he's breaking new ground. He's not, and the resulting film is more disappointing than the hype surrounding it lets on.

The movie has earned critical acclaim for capturing the zeitgeist of gadget-based narcissism, though it strikes me as the sort of thing made by someone who could use some actual problems to worry about.

A not very satisfying, not especially nourishing combination sci-fi story/romantic comedy.

The best things in the movie aren't transporting or diverting but merely incite intellectual recognition: Yes. OK. That's amusing.

Like all relationships, it's a complicated film that's hard to love but impossible to hate, and though it gets better once it overcomes its painfully dull first hour, it still feels uneven at best.

...a silly, not credible meander down a road to nowhere.

There are many, many feelings stuck into Her, pin-cushion-style, but the result is a kind of overstuffed stupefaction.

there's a dangerous naivete here

All concept and style, "Her" floats around like a clinical bubble that pops.

Her is a romantic computer comedy. It's a rom-com.com.
