Critic Reviews for The Weekend

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (3)

  • The process of how [her] pain becomes comedy is very interesting to watch.

    September 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Notwithstanding any comparisons, there's more assured personality here than there was in her last feature, the bright, proficient but somewhat synthetic big-studio teen romance "Everything, Everything."

    September 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Weekend quickly proves to be the mopiest comedy in many a moon.

    September 13, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It drags a bit at times, especially as it winds down, but it remains a film you want to spend more time with.

    September 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Luckily, Meghie and the cast's ability to tap into a great deal of humor with a whole lot of energy helps to minimize the cringeworthy aspect of some of the unfortunate circumstances the characters find themselves in.

    September 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Meghie is adept at sliding between subplots and mixing her characters into talky combinations, all the better to maximize the film's slim 86-minute running time, but it's Zamata and her Zadie who steal nearly every moment.
