Walk Of Shame (2014)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Incoherent, unfunny, and borderline misogynist, Walk of Shame lives up to its title for filmgoers entering and leaving the theater.

Critic Reviews for Walk Of Shame

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (11)

This isn't as hateful as, say, The Other Woman. The concept's a little higher and the humiliation more cosmic.

An unintended nightmare scenario for women in Hollywood, and the persistent humiliation required just to get noticed.

Top Critic

There's not much else we can praise about it, but at least "Walk of Shame" is perfectly titled.

New York Daily News
Top Critic

A beautiful woman leaves a bar and goes home with James Marsden. And that is just about the only thing that makes sense in "Walk of Shame."

New York Times
Top Critic

Not even the fleet comic footwork of Elizabeth Banks can save this vile, unfunny stab at screwball farce.

Variety
Top Critic

Though replete with plot holes and lapses in logic as wide and ugly as the L.A. Freeway, Walk of Shame doesn't have the moxie to go anywhere ludicrous or dangerous with its premise.

Audience Reviews for Walk Of Shame

This film hinges on one inept joke: Good girls act appropriately, and all others are whores. Seriously, that out of date set of gender politics frames this entire film, and spawns most of the jokes as well. Elizabeth Banks is giving it her all here, but it's hard to work with such a piteous script and this inept direction. The little that is good about this film relies in the great chemistry between Banks and Marsden, who seem to have a rock solid attraction, though formulaic in its approach. Nobody saw this film; nobody bought it, lent it to a friend, or talked about it outside of berating its creators and stars. Not only does this film suck, but it's detrimental to women for its sexist depiction of them, and blatant sexualization as well. Please don't see this film. No good will come of it.

Undoubtedly funny with a total performance from Elizabeth Banks, 'Walk of Shame' have all the potential to rise but too bad they pick the wrong release date by competing Spiderman.. Although I like it, I definitely agree that this is a 'good DVD watch' movie, not the one that you expect to see in theaters..

Elizabeth Banks is one of those actresses that is just likeable. She has that quality where you just watch her movies, and like her. Here she is the star as a news anchor who has a one night stand, then her car is towed. She has to travel through the worst parts of town to get to the biggest job opportunity of her life. Are there cliches? Yup, through the whole thing. But it's funny, and one of those good nature comedies that in a few years will be on FOX and you'll chill out to watch because you didn't love it, but liked it. Banks is great, and the rest of the cast do good. It tries to be outrageous, but it's very tame compared to most comedies these days. Really reminded me of "Adventures in Babysitting" only without the kids, or babysitting. If that makes any sense. Anyway, worth a watch!
