She's Funny That Way

Critics Consensus

She's Funny That Way is an affectionate, talent-filled throwback to screwball comedies of old -- which makes it even more frustrating that the laughs are disappointingly few and far between.

Audience Reviews for She's Funny That Way

  • Jul 21, 2017
    Convivial ensemble comedy with stand out performances from Jennifer Aniston As a jilted psychiatrist, and a real short case for images and boot as a jilted psychiatrist, and a real shorwcase for Imogen Poots Who is completely adorable despite a suspect Brooklyn accent. Or gun of its goes to great lengths to create a load of hexagon, but a "2 months later" Quickfix conclusion feels like a copout.

    A sweet but louche playwright gifts young call girls with generous nest eggs to encourage them to stop hooking, but when one such ingénue gets cast in his play starring his wife, the show nearly goes dark. Peter Bogdanovich's philosophical romantic comedy is reminiscent of Woody Allen's show biz fables - full of mistaken identities, magical realism, and a star-making turn from real-life ingénue Imogen Poots. Her lurchy walk is so awkward yet purposeful.

    Didn't expect a whole lot, but this wasn't bad. It isn't the greatest movie ever, but it's an entertaining enough hour and a half. It felt very like a Woody Allen movie to me in its delivery and theme. Jennifer Aniston is the bitchiest I've ever seen her. Very amusing. Imogene Poots is also quite engaging as the call girl turned actress. Owen Wilson, sleazy as ever. I am immune to him, I don't see his appeal at all.

    She's Funny That Way is a farcical comedy that delivers some good laughs. The film follows a rising young actress named Izzy Patterson who tells the story of how a chance meeting with a play producer turned into her big break. Starring Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Jennifer Aniston, and Rhys Ifans, the casting is pretty good, and they do quite well with this style of board comedy. Still, some of the jokes don't land and there are a few too many characters. Also, the frame story of the actress being interviewed seems rather contrived. Yet despite being somewhat clunky and disjointed, She's Funny That Way is entertaining and kind of fun.
