Critic Reviews for Pretend We're Kissing

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

  • The likable indie flick will connect with both hip cynics and those with rosier hopes.

  • There's just enough kooky appeal and wit to make Pretend We're Kissing a romantic comedy that's also a cautionary tale.

  • Sadowski frames his shots thoughtfully and lingers on them. This approach overcomes both the usual indie style (shaky hand-held) and the clichéd rom-com conventions (soft-focus close ups).

  • This is a beautifully-photographed movie. I mean it.

  • I'll allow that the lack of chemistry may well be the entire point of Pretend We're Kissing, but it's not executed in an engaging or illuminating way. It just hangs there while everyone does their best to steer around it.

  • Whatever your thoughts on the film's central up-and-down relationship, though, you can't help but fall in love with the way Sadowski frames the scenery.

Audience Reviews for Pretend We're Kissing

    Once you get a little over the lead characters annoyance the film has a lot of heart. The quirky film never leaves you longing to get you into the next uncomfortable situation. Found this one on Netflix and liked it much more than I expected. I enjoy these character driven stories and while this may feel like a romantic comedy on the surface, this couldn't be any further away. I think most guys have been in these situations and seeing someone struggling in them is very hard to watch, in a good way though. 07-05-2017.
