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

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.

If Dharma and Greg went to therapy--a lot--you might end up with something like Robert Cary's appealing but uneven romantic comedy.
October 4, 2007
Westfeldt's screenplay and Cary's direction combine to make it the best Manhattan love story since When Harry Met Sally.
October 1, 2007
Writer and producer Westfeldt revisits the terrain of love and misunderstanding with the same breezy, romantic tone of Kissing Jessica Stein.
September 28, 2007
Ira & Abby is a comedy of errors that makes very few along the way.
September 22, 2007
Muddle-headed.
September 22, 2007
It is a pleasant enough way to while away 90 minutes, but lacks the consistency of the weight to make it more than a genial diversion.
September 18, 2007
...Ira & Abby radiates a breathless charm, due in no small part to Ms. Westfeldt's sharp dialogue and engagingly unmannered performance.
September 18, 2007
The nicest surprise of the week -- not just nice but amazing -- is a comedy called Ira and Abby.
September 17, 2007
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).
September 15, 2007
A romantic comedy about a kooky couple that sinks in a whirlpool of therapeutic clichés.
September 15, 2007
A formidable crowd-pleaser.
September 14, 2007
Neither Westfeldt's sunny charm nor the best efforts of a stellar supporting cast can haul her formulaic screenplay out of its tired shtick.
September 14, 2007
Ira & Abby wants to explore the state of modern marriage, but finds the allure of romantic-comedy fantasies impossible to resist.
September 14, 2007
A deeply funny follow-up to Kissing Jessica Stein from that film's co-writer and co-star Westfeldt.
September 14, 2007
For every odd laugh it earns, also induces twice as many groans for obviousness and coincidence-fraught comic straining.
September 13, 2007
This round-robin of marital malaise has more integrity than one might expect from its meet-cute beginnings.
September 11, 2007
Annie Hall called, and it wants its plot back.
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?
