Looking for Kitty

Critics Consensus

Narratively shallow and visually pedestrian, Looking for Kitty suggests writer-director-star Edward Burns might need to rest and recharge his creative batteries.

Critic Reviews for Looking for Kitty

  • Sentimental yet insensate, this forgotten '04 trifle is Burns at his worst ...

  • Burns turns in a nicely understated performance; but it's David Krumholtz, as Abe, who's the backbone of the movie.

    September 1, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Looking for Kitty offers moments of striking insight amid the inevitable self-indulgence.

    September 1, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A disgruntled New York City private investigator forms an unlikely bond with a high school baseball coach from upstate in Edward Burns's latest exercise in maleness.

    August 31, 2006 | Rating: 3/5
  • Give Edward Burns at least a little credit for perseverance, because just about any other writer-director-actor who released a movie every couple of years to critical shrugs and audience indifference would've long since hung up his megaphone.

    August 31, 2006 | Rating: C-
  • It might be the most maturely conceived role in Burns's films, but the plot around it is flimsy, the visual storytelling simpleminded, and the general ideas for character one-note.

Audience Reviews for Looking for Kitty

  • Nov 24, 2012
    Looking for Kitty is the sort of indie comedy that is far too smug for its own good. It has some scenes that work well, but the film itself just feels too one-note, simplistic, and far too confined to justify its already brief running time. The characters aren't particularly interesting, the situations aren't particularly funny, and the narrative isn't nearly as clever as the filmmakers seem to believe it is. About the only thing it has going for it are the indie sensibilities that inject a sense of realism. That, however, only goes so far when there isn't much else to keep the audience engaged. The acting is serviceable, and the writing okay, but the story is too bland. Overall, a lackluster attempt at Woody Allen imitation. 2.5/5 Stars

    A movie focused on character development, a good indie film.
