It's a testament to the charm of actress Greta Gerwig that she can save this sluggish script.

Versus what, precisely? Or is it whom?

It's such a mopey, navel-gazing affair that even Gerwig has a hard time saving it.

Every time I walk out of a movie with Greta Gerwig in it, such as Damsels in Distress, Greenberg, and especially Arthur, I think, "You know what would have made that movie better? More Greta Gerwig."

The thing is, Gerwig is delightful, but she's in a constant wrestling match between her lively instincts and the dead instincts of the material, which insist on defining a woman by her relationships to men.

While Lola is adorable throughout, neither she nor the film will be remembered the morning after.

Lola Versus is all Greta all the time, a bonanza for fans and proof that Gerwig's easy offbeat charm, obvious smarts and physical comedy gifts can carry a film.

Gerwig remains one of the most captivating new stars to hit the big screen, but she's still looking for a movie that deserves her.

Plays like a studio-produced romantic comedy as made by people who genuinely care about and are invested in their flawed but kind-hearted protagonist.

Screenwriters Daryl Wein (who also directed) and Zoe Lister Jones give Gerwig very little to do other than to be Gerwig.

The self-pitying Lola, alas, is only sporadically interesting...

An unfinished portrait of an unfinished womanchild with fidgety poise nicely embodied by Gerwig.
