Literally, Right Before Aaron Reviews

Top Critic
October 2, 2017
A trite little comedy so jumbled, disconnected and bad you can't believe it doesn't star James Franco.
October 2, 2017
Justin Long, whose career was built on mild likeability, suffers for that mildness here, in a film that flounders right along with him.

"Literally, Right Before Aaron" is minor - a spiky indie trifle - but it has a convincing perversity and flair.
September 29, 2017
Boring, trite, sexist tripe that wants to make the viewer empathize with a guy who's actually pretty aggressive in his pursuit of loserdom.

It's clear that Adam is the actual worst, but it's not clear if "Literally, Right Before Aaron" is aware of exactly how bad he is.
September 28, 2017
The problem here is Mr. Long's Adam, a twitchy knot of tics and self-pity. He invites our sympathy - especially when contrasted with the smarmy Aaron - but doesn't really deserve it.
September 28, 2017
The film ends with a riff on the final moments of The Graduate, a frustrating suggestion of a much better work.

Unless you're related to one of the actors, there is no reason to buy a ticket to this mess. Literally.
