If I Were You Reviews

November 28, 2013
Here's a safe prediction: movie critics are going to have fun with the title of If I Were You.
March 15, 2013
"If I Were You'' has more than its share of laughs, but director Joan Carr-Wiggin needed to cut half an hour to make this fly without interest flagging.

Harden is a wonderful actress but struggles to find the complexity in so strained a situation.

Buried in the bloat of Joan Carr-Wiggin's interminable "If I Were You" are the seeds of what might have been a lean, snappy farce about duplicitous, adulterous games.

Bloody awful.

The people responsible for a hapless load of bunk called If I Were You can only be described as delusional. They think they have made an actual movie, when nothing in it qualifies.

It's been a minute since we've seen [Marcia Gay Harden] in a really juicy lead role, and she sinks her teeth into this one. How unfortunate then that nothing else about the film even comes close to matching her considerable talents.

An odd little duck of a film [that] kicks around enjoyably for a while in the same sandbox as some of Woody Allen's mid-career farces, before eventually pivoting and skipping off into less rewarding territory.

An anti-rom-com in the best sense, Joan Carr-Wiggin's film joyously revives the screwball tradition with real wit, as well as making one fabulously tart female buddy movie.
March 11, 2013
A wannabe French-style infidelity farce that keeps indulging in unnecessary bathos and subplots.

A strangled endeavor that's 30 minutes too long and short-sheeted in the laugh department. Perhaps it was a blast to make, but to sit through the feature requires an extraordinary amount of patience.

Acaba levando o espectador a desejar trocar de corpo com alguém que, preferencialmente, esteja bem longe da sala de projeção.

A screwball comedy for Canadians-not LOL funny, but as crazy as you might expect Toronto to get.
March 12, 2013
The film's comic sense (exemplified by a drunken Harden acting inappropriately) is slack and its dramatic conclusion unfulfilling.
January 19, 2012
If anything, that Harden shines in such a problematic starring role only reaffirms her stature.
