Meet Monica Velour Reviews

May 13, 2011
Pretty good performance, awfully lame movie.

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.

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.

You really come away wishing Cattrall could take this character to a more serious film. Who better to show the flip side of beauty?

Better than its premise would suggest, the film works to the degree that it does thanks to the well-drawn characterizations and the frequent doses of sly, subtle humor.

Watching Tobe circle the drain in an open-mouthed daze, like some sort of unwanted goldfish, is absolutely no fun at all.

[A] herky-jerky story.

Cattrall, who gained weight for a role in which she looks every one of her 50-something years, makes "Meet Monica Velour" more involving than it sounds.

In some ways this film's biggest failing is that it can't decide whose story it is telling, his or hers.

Like a fledgling Will Ferrell, Mr. Ingram embraces his inner nerd with mouth permanently agape and hair sprouting like florets of burned broccoli. But this is Ms. Cattrall's movie all the way.

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 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.

Harmless coming-of-age stuff, but you've seen it all a million times.
