Critic Reviews for Surrogate Valentine

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

The story never asserts itself in any dramatic or comedic or even home-movie fashion.

September 29, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Cultivates a sweet, shucksy tone that wears thin in some of the early scenes but ultimately deepens into genuine heart.

Dave Boyle's pic is fueled by no overriding visual style, relying completely on its actors' chemistry for momentum. Unfortunately, the two strike no sparks.

March 15, 2011 | Full Review…

Offers a certain mild slacker charm.

March 14, 2011 | Full Review…

Despite some winning moments of lo-fi humor and some inspired set pieces, there's simply not enough here to carry a feature film-even one that tops out at 75 minutes.
