Critic Reviews for Permanent
Arquette is charmingly endearing as the frustrated Jeanne, Wilson movingly conveys his character's vulnerability as well as his bluster and McLean is terrific as the beleaguered young girl desperate to have a mane like Farrah Fawcett's.
As Auralie, Ms. McLean is appealing and fresh-faced and could do well in a better coming-of-age movie in a few years.
It's not without its charms; they just tend to be suffocated by bad wig jokes, distracting wardrobe choices and Craig Wedren's invasively cutesy score.
Permanent feels like a short film stretched to feature length. It never quite rises above the level of its premise.
"Permanent" isn't particularly funny, and Burson's furiously idiosyncratic approach registers as borderline obnoxious at times.
Audience Reviews for Permanent
Quirky yet heartwarming, this summer spent with a idiosyncratic family of individuals each trying to make their way in the difficult world of small town close-mindedness and snobbery wins by being unintrusive. It is not a laugh out loud effort. It's more like spending time with members of your own family who you might love despite yourself, and that might eck a smile out of you. The core unit are all endearing, but not overly so. A nice pass of time for those so inclined.
