Critic Consensus: Landline's talented cast -- and a fast-paced approach from director/co-writer Gillian Robespierre -- help this charming multi-generational dramedy overcome a familiar storyline.

Critic Reviews for Landline
I've argued before that Slate should be the queen of modern-day rom-coms, if such a position was open. Add Landline to the evidence pile.
I found myself wishing that Robespierre had uncovered something more interesting for her characters to do than act out plotlines from other movies I had already seen.
A forlornly funny and emotionally bruising dramedy that rarely misses an opportunity to reveal humans as the flawed and occasionally awful beings that they are.
For all the profanity and naughty behavior, it has the timid, ingratiating vibe of a television sitcom, sticking to safe and familiar emotional territory.
In sweetly calibrated moments ... Landline finds the analog joy it's reaching for.
