Small Time Reviews

April 21, 2014
Small Time plays out in plodding fashion that seems engineered to keep the audience at arms' length.

Coming-of-age drama delivers some laughs, but loses its way when things gets serious

"Small Time" is agreeably sentimental meat-and-potatoes fare with strong dashes of humor, executed with a sincerity that's hard to resist.

Don't let the title of this indie gem fool you, "Small Time" has humor and heart big time.
April 17, 2014
"Small Time" has its heart in the right place, but its screenplay's in serious need of a tuneup.

Writer-director Joel Surnow, the co-creator of 24, makes an assured, tangy feature debut with this semi-autobiographical story.

Overall a decent effort.

Surely a big-time Emmy winner like Surnow can do better.
April 17, 2014
With his personal proximity to the subject, Joel Surnow brings genuine warmth to his characters. Some of the gags and drama feel artificial, but the movie works because the talented cast sell it so well.

'Small Time' still closes the deal, thanks to that one indefinable selling point: star charisma.
April 16, 2014
The storytelling feels mechanical and contrived.
