April 3, 2011
Meet Monica Velour is a cruel movie. It's also cruelly unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
April 6, 2011
Despite a sympathetic performance from Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall, there simply isn't much life or surprise in this tepid indie.
April 6, 2011
From dirty-movie parodies to the achieving of one's misfit dreams, Keith Bearden's coming-of-age dramedy adheres to the flaccidest of formulas.

[A] herky-jerky story.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 4, 2011
Blessed with a promising concept for a dark comedy, "Meet Monica Velour" would rather tug heartstrings or script repetitive behavior from derivative characters.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
April 6, 2011
The result is unbalanced by cartoonish flourishes -- Ingram's performance being the chief offender -- that overpower Cattrall's subtler character work.
April 10, 2011
Watching Tobe circle the drain in an open-mouthed daze, like some sort of unwanted goldfish, is absolutely no fun at all.
April 15, 2011
You really come away wishing Cattrall could take this character to a more serious film. Who better to show the flip side of beauty?

Had first-time director Keith Bearden been as devoted to keeping Meet Monica Velour on track as he did to coming up with punderful porn flick names, he could have had a satisfying dark comedy on his hands.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 7, 2011
In some ways this film's biggest failing is that it can't decide whose story it is telling, his or hers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 6, 2011
Harmless coming-of-age stuff, but you've seen it all a million times.

Coming-of-age awfulness.
April 11, 2011
Dustin Ingram is a Jon Heder-wannabe, which is not something that anyone should want to be.
April 15, 2011
The role of a former star of the ''golden age'' of porn sounds perfect for Kim Cattrall, and she handles it nicely - at least, in the rare moments when this indie comedy isn't terminally contrived.

Pretty good performance, awfully lame movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 13, 2011
From a plot standpoint, there isn't much that's remarkable about it, yet its two central figures are so honestly drawn that they make up for any predictability along the way.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

I could have lived a thousand life times blissfully unaware of what Brian Dennehy's flabby ass cheeks look like, but these are the occupational risks.

July 14, 2011
Beautifully acted, it's a tender love story with one or two belly laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 7, 2011
Kim Cattrall takes on older female sexuality on screen, in her provocative as usual new role as a struggling single mom and sex worker, in this self-described male feminist directed movie. And playing female degradation raw, with surprising dignity.
December 31, 2011
Cattrall does what she does best, pushing boundaries unapologetically. And there's not a hint of lewd intentions, but plenty of saucy satire surrounding US culture's sexual contradictions, in a geek's determined fantasy romance bypassing cougar labels.
