Multiple Sarcasms Reviews

May 13, 2010
An hour-and-a-half mopefest so complete that by the end of it, you want to give Hutton's character a smack in the face and tell him to stop whining, already.

Multiple Sarcasms is Woody Allen lite -- there's a lot of introspective fumbling around and intellectual foreplay. But in the end, instead of a satisfying climax, it feels like someone is faking it.

May 4, 2010
A vanity production by Branch, previously a studio branding consultant, it's the kind of odious, self-validating wish fulfillment that actually makes you appreciate the more generous self-absorption of Henry Jaglom films.

Timothy Hutton's fine, loose-limbed perf as a man adrift lifts Multiple Sarcasms, frosh scribe-helmer Brooks Branch's male menopause apologia, out of cliche-ridden territory -- at least temporarily.
