The satirical nature of She's Funny That Way keeps the film entertaining.
August 15, 2019
A light and likeable screwball comedy with a stellar ensemble cast.

She's Funny That Way is one sharper script away from being a truly decent comedy, but the pace and frivolity still make this an enjoyable romp.

Bogdanovich is clearly in his element, even dashing off some excellent post-modern flourishes.

Some strong lead performances from Imogen Poots and Owen Wilson sweeten the deal, but the plot is heavily reliant on coincidence ...

...it left me smiling for hours, and although it deals with complex themes such as divorce, infidelity and prostitution, Bogdanovich treats them in a fun and light way. [Full review in Spanish]

Bogdanovich co-wrote the script with (now ex-wife) Louise Stratten, and one gets glimpses throughout of the comic soufflé that the project wanted to be.

Poots is lively and likeable, Aniston and Ifans are both very funny and it's lovely to see the great Cybill Shepherd -- who got her big break in The Last Picture Show -- doing her loyal bit as Izzy's mum.

She's Funny That Way is trying very hard to be a sexy screwball comedy. It tries so hard, with such a contrived and silly story, that it only succeeds in wearing the audience down. [Full review in Japanese]

Bogdanovich, the principal proponent of the latter-day screwball comedy, wastes a large and capable cast here.

It's a lighthearted, somewhat amusing romp written by Bogdanovich and his ex-wife Louise Stratten, filled with interweaving stories that twist and turn, and are amplified when it becomes clear this isn't the first time Arnold has "mentored" a prostitute.
April 6, 2016
Co-written by Bogdanovich with his ex-wife Louise Stratten ... the story is brisk, breezy and executed with panache.

Thankfully, with some top-notch performances, including Ifans' lusty leading man and Jennifer Aniston as a cynical counsellor, this movie turns out to actually be funny that way.
September 16, 2015
Amusing piffle for audiences congenitally annoyed by new-fangled comedies.

She's Funny That Way is an oddity that feels like a crowd pleaser but ultimately plays to a very small room.
September 4, 2015
Screwball comedy about prostitute aims for farce but misses.
September 3, 2015
As our lead hooker with a heart of thousand-carat gold, Imogen Poots once again reigns supreme, gifting her every scene, line and moment with life, spontaneity, energy and comic precision.

She's Funny That Way is a charming little film which benefits from its quaint milieu.
September 1, 2015
She's Funny That Way makes for good fun, though it's not necessarily funny in that, or many other, ways. If nothing else, it's heartening to see Bogdanovich back in the saddle.
