Critic Reviews for The Comedian

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (9)

  • The world is reaching out to gay romance right now. But it takes a lot of reaching to like Tom Shkolnik's The Comedian, or even to understand what it is saying.

  • Shkolnik knows what it is to be shrugging along in the city with not enough money in your pocket, and no idea what to do with yourself.

  • Just when you think you've got the measure of it, it'll drift off down another mumbly alley of blind uncertainty about what its protagonist thinks he's doing in life.

  • The meandering life of a London stand-up comic makes for a meandering movie experience.

    May 30, 2013 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • For all its honesty, the film feels frustratingly incomplete, a great character in search of a story.

    May 29, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Comedian does have moments that feel remarkably true to life... In this instance though, realism does not make for compelling drama and one is left longing for a spark of energy.
