September 9, 2007
Amidst its inquiry into the feasibility of monogamy, marriage, and true love, Ira & Abby raises a more pressing issue: Is this all there is to mainstream indie filmmaking?

It spends so much time reminding of how quaint and kooky it is throughout that you may find yourself pulling out your wallet or purse and offering it some of your hard-earned money if it will agree to just simmer down and go away

Annie Hall called, and it wants its plot back.
September 15, 2007

The steady addition of more and more characters served to fragment what could have been a charming romantic comedy.

While there are some delightful moments overall this is pretty familiar stuff, none of it really going in a direction we haven't seen both before and better.

Muddle-headed.
July 14, 2007
Though Westfeldt has a winning way with a punch line and a perky screen presence that is very much in the Diane Keaton/Jenna Elfman mode, the picture ultimately feels like yesterday's brisket.

For every odd laugh it earns, also induces twice as many groans for obviousness and coincidence-fraught comic straining.
September 14, 2007
Ira & Abby wants to explore the state of modern marriage, but finds the allure of romantic-comedy fantasies impossible to resist.

Neither Westfeldt's sunny charm nor the best efforts of a stellar supporting cast can haul her formulaic screenplay out of its tired shtick.

It was all so fresh and funny -- when Woody Allen did it.

October 7, 2007
Offers some smiles and rueful insights about the vicissitudes of love, but its almost slavish imitation of the Woody Allen formula ultimately makes it seem stale.

It's sunny, oh-so-New-York and ever-so cute, and Messina and Westfeldt, under-used actors, are equally beguiling.

Ira and Abby is far from being an unlikable movie. It has a charming lunacy about it, which allows for much enjoyment, or at least comfortable, familiar, routine easiness (like a marriage).

Ira & Abby has plenty of sharp details, mostly verbal, and it gives old pros and newer faces a chance to show off their poker-faced comic wiles.
