Critic Reviews for Manny & Lo

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10)

Its thematic scope stays rather small, and the final third of the movie seems muted and flat.

April 2, 2003 | Full Review…

A sweet little fable, a bit shy on substance but quite charming in the telling.

December 23, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

An unapologetically small but wholly original movie, warm-hearted but not precious, and possessed of a gently wacky sensibility.

February 14, 2001 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is a slight enterprise, not always expert in its construction, but it is sweet without being cloying, and it is sentimental in beneficial ways.

January 1, 2000

With its carefully-modulated combination of light comedy and drama, the film casts a gentle spell.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The story settles into a fairly routine feminist fable.
