The cast is appealing but often looks lost, stranded between all of the conflicting directions.

Most of the actors struggle with the clunky dialogue and often look almost as uncomfortable delivering it as you'll feel sitting there watching them do so.

Winds up feeling like lots of other quirky movies that try to score hipness points with young adults.

A lousy movie that's not merely unwatchable, but also unlistenable.

Breen's script has deadpan wit, though it becomes a little labored as it goes along.

Can't get enough of libidinous young city dwellers? Try this obscenely bad dark comedy, so crass that it makes Edward Burns' Sidewalks of New York look like Oscar Wilde.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

Occasionally amateurishly made but a winsome cast and nice dialogue keeps it going.

The rather unlikable, unsympathetic characters make what is less than 90 minutes seem much, much longer.

We have poignancy jostling against farce, thoughtful dialogue elbowed aside by one-liners, and a visual style that incorporates rotoscope animation for no apparent reason except, maybe, that it looks neat.

An imponderably stilted and self-consciously arty movie.

For the most part Stevens glides through on some solid performances and witty dialogue.

Just a Kiss wants desperately to come off as a fanciful film about the typical problems of average people. But it is set in a world that is very, very far from the one most of us inhabit.

I'd have to say the star and director are the big problems here.

So pretentious and off-putting, that even without annoying gimmicks and misplaced humor it would be hard to find it anything but irritating.

Can be classified as one of those 'alternate reality' movies... except that it would have worked so much better dealing in only one reality.

Clumsily written and numbly performed comedy of yammers.
