Izzy Gets The F*ck Across Town is an almost great film. After starting out well it loses steam in its final third and threatens to become forgettable.
September 30, 2019
Not many scripted funny moments, and the funny folks involved rarely rise above them.

Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town is no more than the sum of its parts, but with crisp writing and such off-kilter and intriguing performances the film adds up to a fun ride.

For any film, Izzy Gets The Fuck Across Town would be an impressive feat. But for a writing and directorial debut, Papierniak has crafted a masterful film that one would think was the work of a veteran filmmaker.

Mackenzie Davis energizes the indie-punk comedy.

A film full of piss and vinegar, but also a fair amount of charm, it's the sort of energetic calling card that should get all involved more work.

Unfortunately, Izzy fritters away much of its early promise and energy on a will-they-or-won't-they romantic plot that the film simultaneously indulges in and treats with contempt.
July 19, 2018
It's all mighty existential and interesting, yet the introduction of this heady topic acts as prelude to a rather bizarre, if dark, comedic situation. The timing, like everything in this movie, is a little off-kilter.

Izzy...is at its best when it reflects its star's manic energy.
June 25, 2018
...a scrappy, madcap indie that's clearly less interested in any semblance of stylistic or emotional consistency than it is in just keeping us dizzy. Its moments of charm are few and fleeting.

All one can do is watch Izzy get from point A to point B with as many obstacles being placed in the way as possible.

Propulsive, kinetic, and unapologetically crass ... this is the sort of potential breakthrough role [Mackenzie] Davis has needed for years.

It's here that the price of admission pays off because the sisters manage to kill their impromptu performance whilst simultaneously engaging in conversation using only their faces and vocal intonations.
June 22, 2018
There's very little at stake in this spunky little indie comedy, and that's part of its charm; Davis is endearing, and the SoCal locations and characters are warmly, lazily quirky.
June 22, 2018
All the punk energy in the world can't distract from the second-rate Sundance-ness.
June 22, 2018
An effective little indie with fantastic performances and a mostly effective structure. And it definitely won't feel like sitting in languorous L.A. traffic.
June 22, 2018
The writer-director, Christian Papierniak, made his name with the video game NBA 2K18. He appears to be trying to split the difference between that arena and the world of "edgy" indie female-driven comedy.
June 22, 2018
A pretty, slightly precious punk trifle with blood on its white tux jacket.
June 22, 2018
Amid the Diablo Cody-style one-liners, a couple of things raise Izzy above the usual indie fare.
June 22, 2018
Despite a committed performance from lead actress Mackenzie Davis and a promising opening, the film quickly corkscrews into a death spiral of trite dialogue meant to obfuscate the lack of a coherent or meaningful narrative.
