  • I'm not sure that the movie, in the end, was worth everything that went into making it.

  • The most interesting thing about The Leisure Class is how it was made, and that's not interesting enough.

  • You can see the vague outlines of what Mann was going for here-the sort of lighthearted farce that deepens into nightmarish black comedy as the night progresses... He doesn't come close to pulling it off, though.

  • There's little reason to waste 85 minutes watching Jason Mann's The Leisure Class, a tonally troubled and reprehensibly dull movie.

  • We're here to judge The Leisure Class itself, and hoo boy, what a whole lot of nothing this purported comedy is.

    Nov 2, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The targets aren't particularly distinctive, and the notion of the entire narrative unfolding over a 24-hour period, as executed, makes for a rather blunt, heavy-handed approach.

Audience Reviews for The Leisure Class

    A mess. Boring. The two male leads offer nothing to engage audiences. For all of the talk about the director being so focused the the film's visuals there is not one interesting image on the screen. The only positives are the performances of Bruce Davison and Bridget Regan. It appears that the scenes when they're to act exasperated may have been inspired by what had to be a truly terrible working experience.
