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

Perhaps investigating something new would have better served Weiss than simply looking to her own experiences, exploring rather than settling.

The tone and pacing and even the characters are inconsistent, but still writer/director Valerie Weiss gives the film some wit, some humorous situations, and a refreshing dash of real science.

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.

With its labored parade of polygamists, neurotic Jewish parents, and projectile semen explosions, Control offers nothing new. This one should have stayed in a test tube.

[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.

If you want to enjoy watching a confused scientist grappling with life choices, stick with "The Nutty Professor."

Clumsy, awkward, unfunny indie rom-com about a grad-student scientist trying to quantify whether or not she's really in love.

Takes a frenzied late turn into espionage territory, an attempt to gather momentum that only makes the film more tiresome.

The film, in its defense, is far too vacuous to be accused of having any kind of agenda-it just happens to get its politics wrong along with everything else.

The tepid indie feelgood romcom follows a too familiar formulaic storyline to hold my interest.
