All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

Too reliant on exaggerated characters and situations, and often looking and feeling like a TV show.

A textured, silly, sweet, and deeply felt comedy.

Somehow manages to fall disappointingly flat all too often.

On a whole, this is an agreeable sophomore effort from the filmmaker-a Sundance movie in one of the better senses.

Great movie bickering becomes a kind of music, but well before the end of "Landline," I just wanted the characters to cease their ranting and storming, or at least lower the volume.

A smart and tender movie that was swept a bit under the rug by its misguided designation as "the abortion comedy."
