The movie is so well made that it's hard not to like this often funny movie regardless whether one takes the story too seriously.

April 1, 2009
A quirky little film that relies heavily on charm to make up for some rather glaring flaws in story, pacing and character. Fortunately, it has charm to spare.

The casting is unique, the acting able, and the camera work expert.

Berger appears to be a potential breakout talent, turning a character who could be endlessly irritating into an oddly charming, self-effacing rogue.
March 30, 2009
It works here, however, thanks largely to the strength of Berger's performance and the way the movie's familiar "follow your heart" message is diluted by a goofy subplot involving David trying to help Tom find gainful employment.

Skills Like This gazes indulgently on 20-something aimlessness and the comfort of assigned roles. In Mr. Miranda's hands sloth can be more appealing than you might think.

Monty Miranda's fantasy for slackers sometimes slips into toilet-humor stupidity, but thanks to a knack for ingenious absurdity, Skills Like These is just ridiculous enough to be charming.

February 10, 2009
Likable but lightweight 2007 slacker comedy Skills Like This coasts on laid-back absurdist rhythms as three twentysomething pals scramble to redefine themselves in the wake of one's self-affirming discovery of his talents as a thief.
April 17, 2009
It almost works, too, though ultimately this visually splendid but sluggish story of a twentysomething would-be writer and his impulsive, overnight career as a bank and convenience-store robber takes the money and runs nowhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Overall, it's less clever than [director] Miranda seems to think.

Energetic if incoherent.
