Lola Versus has plenty of potential, but with a script that has absolutely no handle on its lead character, the experience quickly becomes unbearably frustrating.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Gerwig's done enough good work to allow us to chalk this one up as a glossy blip.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

There's a distinct lack of individuality and insight and, appositely enough, if Lola Versus is about a woman floundering, as a film it can be accused of the same.

Lola Versus never comes close to generating the sort of laughs or attitude required to fill out such a frail narrative.

Unfortunately, Lola lives in a sitcom that deprives her of any intrinsic interest.

A year in the life of a young woman unhappy in love and uncertain in career, Lola Versus could easily be faulted for the narrowness of its worldview.

Gerwig is groovy, but Lola is lacking.

Gerwig finally emerges bruised but resilient at the end. So it's not a total loss.
June 14, 2012
Too self-conscious, too slight, too few insights.

It feels like the movie doesn't know what to do with Lola. She's an outsized, original character but the indie movie she's in is, aside from a few hipster trappings, as neat and tidy as a Hollywood romantic comedy.

[An] hour and a half of wearisome quirk and smut...

Lola Versus feels more like a slog through the breakup doldrums than the frothy, intimate growing-up story it hints at throughout.

Surprisingly loathsome.

... at heart it's just a trite and shallow Hollywood rom-com ...

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Lola Versus" is an ill-conceived romantic comedy that flirts too closely with the widely reviled and obsolete Mumblecore genre.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
June 8, 2012
A cinematic oxymoron, it's an utterly standard unconventional comedy.

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.

"Lola Versus" is directed by Daryl Wein and co-written by his partner Zoe Lister-Jones, but the its real auteur is Greta Gerwig. The actress plays the title character as if her career depended on it -- which it doesn't, but the movie does.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
July 19, 2012
Essentially, this is Gerwig's natural charm versus her character and script's lack of it.

"Lola Versus" is a heavyweight fight Gerwig just can't win.
