October 11, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
October 9, 2018
Mackenzie Davis energizes the indie-punk comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 6, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B
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.
June 23, 2018
Propulsive, kinetic, and unapologetically crass ... this is the sort of potential breakthrough role [Mackenzie] Davis has needed for years.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
June 22, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 22, 2018
All the punk energy in the world can't distract from the second-rate Sundance-ness.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 22, 2018
Amid the Diablo Cody-style one-liners, a couple of things raise Izzy above the usual indie fare.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 22, 2018
It should come as no surprise Mackenzie Davis is the best thing aboutIzzy Gets the F*ck Across Town, a lopsided, punk rock road trip movie without much road.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 21, 2018
Izzy does come across as a one-note character until the movie's climactic confrontation...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 21, 2018
energetic, jam-packed with talent and has a likable indie throwback feel with some memorable moments. But in an ultimately frustrating ending, we question if she even grew at all, and if not, why we spent the time with her at all.
June 21, 2018
Charmingly profane, with a buzzing riot-grrrl soundtrack, "Izzy" is a stylish twist on an '80s trope: Here it's the woman as pathetic supplicant, trying to win back someone who's moved on.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
