This acerbic wit and fearless desire to distort our worst features into our most prevalent ones are why Neil LaBute is an auteur of note.

LaBute's writing is quick and sharp, as usual.

Penned by the incomparable Neil LaBute, Some Girl(s) is theatrical and contrived; to some, it might achieve some rather off-putting extremes of hyper-reality.

Eye for Film

Adam Brody keeps the unnamed protagonist distant, strangely blank, as if part of his problem is his lack of any real personality of his own, prompting him to parasitise the charismatic women he meets and try to substitute scandalous behaviour for depth.

Neil LaBute adapts his bracingly astute play into a series of scenes that make us question how men and women ever come together to make a relationship work.

Neil LaBute may be the bravest writer currently working in motion pictures because he writes male characters who are undeniably loathsome.

Some Girl(s) is engaging because of the fierce, uncompromising nature of the dialogue, as well as the first-rate performances.

Loaded with dark thoughts and agitation, making an excellent transition to the big screen courtesy of director Daisy von Scherler Mayer, who confidently retains LaBute's acid splash.

The deft and merciless director sides with the girls, and to stack the deck she's hired five tremendous actresses who thrill to tear poor Brody apart

It doesn't take pattern-recognition software to catch some shared, troubling concerns here. But the charitable viewer will remember that ugly themes aren't necessarily a thesis.

Draws much of its modest power from the notion that other people's romantic relationships are even more baffling than our own.
Mark Adams
Screen International
June 24, 2013
A classy and beautifully performed screen adaptation of Neil LaBute's stage play, Some Girl(s) is an astute and provocative drama about the perils of relationships and messy breakups in particular.

Adam Brody strikes a deft balance of purposeful sincerity and sociopathic self-justification in the lead role.

Trademark Neil Labute...

One Guy's Opinion
June 16, 2013
Even this lesser LaBute offers a nice twist to his characteristically stinging dissection of man's inhumanity to man--and especially woman.

It's minor LaBute, but nonetheless short and bittersweet.
Sean Burns

More canned misanthropy from Neil LaBute. Cut-rate Carnal Knowledge.
Courtney Duckworth
Film Comment Magazine

The weight of dull clichés only makes the stilted dialogue harder to stomach.
Todd Jorgenson
July 22, 2013
The film can't shake its repetitive structure and stagebound roots.
Rodrigo Perez
The Playlist
June 30, 2013
What once were searing treatises on men, women, relationships and the various toxicities that exist between selfish, shitty, desperate characters, appear -- much like the film's protagonist -- just a little sad and pathetic.
