Amateurish drivel, which is headed for Skinemax in a hurry.

The youthful cast is lively enough to make the enterprise almost work, presenting a time capsule of cyber- communication that should be more interesting 20 years from now.

Weintrob's stylish visuals mimic Web technologies, which succeed in making his characters seem all the more removed from reality. Now if someone would find a way to equip theater seats with a 'delete' key, we could be rid of them completely.

There's something so familiar and commonplace about this story and its characters -- and maybe that has something to do with how much the Internet is a part of our everyday lives -- it's hard to get particularly thrilled.

It does a good job of portraying the day-to-day life of these online obsessives, but we realize eventually that they are more interesting because they are online.

On_Line is the kind of thing I dread -- a movie about digital technology directed by an expert in interactive media and video games.

Well-crafted late-night sleaze.

Take away the computers and DSL lines and it's the 1950s of Jules Feiffer and Mike Nichols and Elaine May all over again, without the shrewdness and bite.

A triumph of formula over substance.

While On Line pretends to be about cyber sex ... it's really about sitcom situations and cyber-schmaltz.

It makes you wonder, is there is a market for soft-porn movies for lonely geeks? Isn't that what computers are for in the first place?

Watching On_Line is a dispiriting experience that leaves you with a nagging 'Is that all there is?' feeling about sex in general.

June 27, 2003
This would-be erotic thriller suffers from the same problem that afflicts so many computer-oriented movies -- namely, that watching characters staring at a screen and typing hardly makes for a thrilling cinematic experience.

It's really just about a bunch of pathetic losers whiling away the hours with their hands jammed down their pants.

The movie epitomizes the problems inherent in attempting to depict new (and constantly morphing) media -- the inevitable obsolescence, the intangible particularities that resist or get lost in translation.
