All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (6)

  • Emitting the unpleasant stench of over-affectation, "Treading Water" slaps together its particular peculiarities with such randomness, it's as if the film were conceived from blindly throwing disparate elements at the wall.

  • About as fun as letting your car drift into a highway divider.

    March 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Well-acted with a compelling concept, but shallow and less than the sum of its parts.

    March 14, 2015 | Rating: 5.8/10 | Full Review…
  • If dying is easy and comedy is hard, Treading Water proves again that whimsy is the hardest kind of comedy there is.

    March 12, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Credit co-stars Douglas Smith and Zoe Kravitz for generating just the right chemistry as endearing oddballs to turn this quirky coming-of-age adventure into an appealing romantic romp.

    March 11, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A gentle charmer punctuated with a series of nicely judged performance and an increasing sense of magical realism.
