November 13, 2014
Director Lynn Shelton's sweetly charming romantic comedy drifts along in the manner you might expect but the richness is in the detail ...
November 11, 2014
Pleasant enough, despite its awkward title.
November 10, 2014
Features good, understated performances by Knightley, Rockwell and Moretz, although they never really elevate the material above the quasi-indie-dramedy grade.
November 9, 2014
There are light and fluffy pleasures to be had from this disposable rom-com ...
November 8, 2014
Keira Knightley frees herself of the trappings of costume drama to deliver a delightfully loose and engagingly funny performance.
November 8, 2014
The unlikelihood of the scenario in no way diminishes what's taking place within its parameters.
November 8, 2014
Though the production retains a bit of indie grunge, in terms of content the picture isn't all that far removed from typical studio romcoms--and to be frank doesn't rank higher than the middle of the pack.
November 7, 2014
Buoyed by Keira Knightley's empathetic performance, Laggies is a decent coming of adult age dramedy that (like its protagonist) is a bit too directionless.
November 7, 2014
Admittedly, there are a few stinky moments --- the engagement of Megan and Anthony --- their breakup --- the prom scene --- to name a few, but "Laggies" is still an enjoyable film.
November 7, 2014
The movie is simplistic, predictable and trite. It's pure fluff.
November 7, 2014
Minimal corn and maximum congeniality.
November 7, 2014
Love Sam Rockwell, but Laggies falls into rom-com cliches.
November 7, 2014
Unlikely as it sounds, there's a refreshing innocence and intimacy to this pairing that really charms, and will work for female audiences in particular.
November 7, 2014
Knightley, it turns out, is a liability.
November 7, 2014
Something of an endurance test.
November 7, 2014
A sweet, smart romantic comedy for grown-ups that quietly exceeds its grasp thanks to great casting and assured direction.
November 7, 2014
[Shelton] lets the comic absurdity of the situation speak for itself while going for something a little deeper.
November 7, 2014
"Laggies" doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it puts an engaging spin on the old canard about high school being the best years of our lives.
November 7, 2014
Charming and off-kilter, this is a rare tale of a young woman struggling with her identity in a way that deals a shock of recognition and never apologizes.
November 6, 2014
Shelton opts for a simple shooting style that emphasizes relationships and dialogue rather than trying to call attention to the filmmaker's talent.
