Critic Reviews for The Competition

  • Simone's documentary is too gripping to be dismissed, and too queasy to be accepted.

  • This ponderous misfire removes the laughs from romantic comedy in the name of trying to find the essence of true love.

  • I'm not sure you could find a less engaging and more generic film title than The Competition.

  • Contrived with stilted, clunky dialogue and intrusive music, but it's nonetheless engaging and uplifting sans dullness and schmaltz. Thora Birch gives a tender, nuanced performance that exudes charisma. She's just as radiant as Leslie Caron was in Gigi.

    Jan 23, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • The will-they-won't-they of the film is a non-starter, and as such the film's climax is stripped of suspense and even the most basic of dramatic payoffs.
