... Brie Larson's "Unicorn Store" is too adult for kids, too childlike for adults, and too muddled for the motley lot of misfits and dreamers who just want to think different.
There's a serious mismatch between the personality of Samantha McIntyre's script ... and Larson's directing style, which feels entirely incompatible with whimsy.
With a less affected, more genuine script, Larson could star in and direct a great comedy. Unicorn Store is not it.
Unicorn Store might not wield the fanciest and finest filmmaking techniques ... but it does show Larson possesses a wisdom beyond her years.
The film is tonally assured enough to render a literal reading somewhat unnecessary since it so purely channels the joy that drives its main character.
Unicorn Store is a reminder of why it is important for ladies to tell stories.
We have plenty of manchild Seth Rogen comedies that are beloved - maybe the girls should get a shot too.
A comedy drama that treads the line between kooky and irritatingly silly and winds up on the wrong side.
Both skewering and celebrating its adult protagonist's childlike wonder, "Unicorn Store" runs the risk of excessive whimsy at every turn. But Larson navigates through a cute story's clear limitations to deliver a film that's often quite funny.
Brie Larson's feature directorial debut is a triumphant and enchanting film.
Brie Larson's directorial debut Unicorn Store is a wonderful debut, a film full of great laughs, terrific performances, clever observations, and a huge, rainbow-coloured heart.
It's easy to dismiss 'Unicorn Store' as cutesy pap, but Larson is so warm and open - as a character, as an actor, and as a filmmaker - that you're rooting for her, which goes a long way.
