As the characters unravel -- and how -- so too does the movie.

A preposterous screwball psychological drama called Sorry, Haters, a film roughly as successful as the phrase 'screwball psychological drama' implies.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Rather than lovers or haters, the film is most likely to find indifference from audiences.

There are weighty subjects broached here ... but none is handled with any maturity or depth, simply tossed out there and swept away by an insulting and sadistic conclusion.

To simply label Sorry, Haters misguided or preposterous is to undersell its out-of-its-gourd daffiness.

A product of a younger, confused generation raised on a junk diet of corporate media propaganda and tabloid news substituting hip for history, it's distanced from any candid self-reflection, while demonizing women as the main source of global distress.

The idea could and previously has been done well, but here it makes for a thoroughly unpleasant film experience.

Ambitious but seriously confused social commentary.

A head-scratcher supreme -- not least for pondering what possibly attracted Robin Wright Penn to her intractable, impossible role -- Jeff Stanzler's Sorry, Haters is sorry indeed.

The movie is so single-minded in those serious intentions -- to make us question who really are the extremists and who the victims -- that it twists its characters into knots and sends its plot in odd directions.

Their puzzling behaviors are given a kind of a rationale before the film is over. But I didn't buy any of it for a second.

That Penn and Kechiche are so committed to their roles only makes writer-director Jeff Stanzler's film more of a conundrum.

It's a well-meaning but ultimately feeble and misguided attempt to say something profound about the aftereffects of the 2001 attacks on New York.

Plucking shamelessly on post-September 11 anxieties, Sorry, Haters follows the irrational involvement of a New York City cab driver and a disturbed fare.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

Sorry, Haters fails to register as anything but a hollow piece of cinematic provocation.

Far from the advertised 'anxiety of a city on edge,' this film does no more than sketch a sorry woman

Many audience members will likely be turned off by the film's bizarre ending. I'd defend it, solely on the grounds that it is the appropriate finish for the entire misbegotten mess.

A sorry mess.

The story, after being quite intriguing, becomes more and more of a letdown (and less and less believable) as the end draws closer.
March 1, 2006
By the time he unveils the final plot twist, his film has lost every shred of credibility.
