Perhaps the humor gets lost in the translation.

About as feel-good a fable set in the Middle East as can be imagined infused with music and magic realism [with] a female narrator.

May 11, 2012
Veering from wackiness to horror and then back again is the kind of balancing act that would challenge even the most talented filmmakers, and Labaki, for all her good intentions and daring ideas, just can't swing the shift.

...When [Nadine Labaki] screams, "You're just animals!", it's to mourn every life snuffed out for worshipping the wrong way or belonging to the wrong group.

Making a movie about sectarian violence in which the local religious figures are comically powerless, at worst, seems like too easy a path to take. Nothing springs from nothing.

The lack of flow and coherence in "Where Do We Go Now?'' leaves not only the characters, but also the audience, wondering where to go.

In the end, "Where Do We Go Now?" has little to say about human conflict beyond the obvious.

May 10, 2012
The continually shifting tone of the movie, whose director also did the romantic comedy "Caramel," keeps you giddily off balance.

"Where Do We Go Now?" suffers from a serious clash of styles, but it's also brave and startlingly funny...

It's the sort of well-meaning fable that's ultimately more admirable than persuasive.
May 10, 2012
'Real people in real situations,' the cast is sprinkled with non-professionals enlisted on the spot who contribute to the film's seriocomic authenticity.
May 10, 2012
Its occasional entertainment value aside, the picture is also blithe to the point of being flimsy.

May 10, 2012
Director and co-writer Nadine Labaki has a careful, delicate hand when it comes to balancing the precious and the poignant.
May 10, 2012
Slow moving...it isn't a great film but it is an entertaining one, a touchy subject given a feel-good flavor...

May 10, 2012
To Labaki's credit, she manages to take the film between tonal extremes credibly and without dulling the impact of either the humor or the horror.

It shows no curiosity about the hatred, so the characters seem less than whole.

May 8, 2012
Like the hashish-laced pastries the ladies make to sedate the male population, the film feels like it has been dosed with sugar to mask its distressingly bitter taste.
May 8, 2012
Lebanese director Nadine Labaki's strikingly original second feature presents a clever solution to ending sectarian violence.
May 8, 2012
By the time the film takes a glib turn into role-switching farce-as Muslims become Christians and Christians become Muslims-the overall toothlessness of the satire becomes damningly apparent.

Never achieves either the seriousness or playfulness that it alternately seeks.
