  • I just wish Unlovable had developed its own unique voice and approach rather than seeming too much like dozens of other forgettable addiction-themed motion pictures.

  • A lack of psychological depth probably isn't fatal for a lite get-your-act-together dramedy, but it might've made this hard-to-love protagonist easier to at least care about.

  • "Unlovable" is the rare indie film that gets just the right level of twee.

  • A young woman who loves not wisely but too much gets a shot at redemption in an excellent dramedy drawn from the real-life experiences of lead player Charlene deGuzman.

  • It's a fluffy spin on the recovery genre, but it's a fresh one, and deGuzman's hard-won life experience adds veracity and honesty to the snappy narrative.

  • There is potential in Unlovable (...) As it stands, however, the film feels like a missed opportunity.
