Critic Reviews for My Dead Boyfriend

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

To be fair, these actors are good at said talking, and they're not unappealing to watch, but the whole narrative seems rather pointless in the end.

November 15, 2016 | Full Review…

A mixture of misplaced gallows humor, wildly over-the-top caricatures and a gimmicky use of animation.

November 4, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

"My Dead Boyfriend" desperately tries to look and sound like a quirky indie hit, but that's not an achievable goal when you have an unlikable lead character indifferently rendered by a name star.

November 3, 2016 | Full Review…

It's the type of indie film that might have played at a minor festival at the turn of the millennium, with the audience offering pity laughter for the cast and crew in attendance and the director waiting in vain for news of an acquisition.

November 3, 2016 | Full Review…

The ridiculous concept manages a few broad laughs, but the characters are consistently more obnoxious than endearing.

November 4, 2016 | Full Review…

Certain elements of the production are handled successfully, and if one can focus exclusively on the positives, the "My Dead Boyfriend" viewing experience might not register as an unfortunate disappointment.
