Losing Control Photos

Movie Info

Four years into her biochemistry Ph.D. program at Harvard, Samantha still cannot replicate the results she achieved in her first few weeks in the program, and her charmingly neurotic tendencies are turning into a serious control problem. Her anxiousness extends beyond her lab work and into her relationship with long-term boyfriend, Ben. When Ben proposes marriage, Sam panics, worried that their relationship "data" is inconclusive. Insisting that she cannot have faith without proof, Sam decides to perform a "control experiment" for her relationship - to see other people and collect "dating data." When Sam discovers that outside sources may be meddling with her data - and also with Ben - she must take control of her life once and for all. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Losing Control

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

  • Losing Control nicely mixes comedic absurdity with weightier career vs. commitment themes.

    May 17, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Perhaps investigating something new would have better served Weiss than simply looking to her own experiences, exploring rather than settling.

  • Weiss's ideas about moviemaking, storytelling, and character development are indistinguishable from bargain-bin romantic comedies (so-called chick flicks) and television shows that barely last a season.

  • [Kent is] the least credible scientist since Denise Richards donned short shorts to play Dr. Christmas Jones.

  • While Losing Control is a thoroughly likable, playful comedy, there's never a sense that writer-director Valerie Weiss is in total command of film's tone, pacing or comic content, which is considerable.

  • Science-themed rom-com isn't ready for clinical trials.
