You get the feeling Martin's not really committed to his movie about a man who won't commit. And he keeps us from committing, as well.

The spark of something great is there, but it never ignites into anything.

Meant to be bewitchingly graceful, instead comes off as half-asleep

Shopgirl isn't romantic nor particularly funny, so it just falls flat.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Second-rate Lost in Translation preciousness.

A case of precise observation of nothing. It's like looking through a microscope at an empty slide.

I can't think of a reason to recommend Shopgirl to anyone.

Steve Martin makes his personal dysfunctional romantic proclivities the subject of a brittle romantic comedy that affords painfully little romance or humor.

Cutesy but never cute, syrupy but never sweet, sexual but never erotic.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

A strange romantic drama in which the three main characters are all losers in love.

www.dictionary.com defines bland as: "not irritating or stimulating; having little or no distinctive flavor." This definition applies to Shopgirl.

Very disappointing, and on so many counts

The filmmakers put a good number of sweet, tender, appealing gestures into it...yet the movie comes off leaving one vaguely disappointed.

Like his silver-maned paramour, the film ultimately lets Mirabelle down and leaves the viewer dissatisfied.

Martin is so flat and uninteresting in the role, you have to imagine charms that aren't apparent. There is no chemistry between the characters, because Martin brought no chemistry to the set.

The movie isn't downright bad, but it's disappointing and forgettable, failing to emulate Allen or anybody else worth a darn.

Without realizing it, the film becomes an ode to middle-aged male lechery of a literate sort; it plays like Left Coast Woody Allen, and I don't mean that as a compliment.

It's not a lack of originality that makes Shopgirl too Saks for its own good; it's the attempt to make a distinctive item into a blue-light special that betrays it.

A glittery, empty package that doesn't make its mix of melancholy and emotional design particularly rewarding or meaningful.
