Critic Reviews for Write When You Get Work

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (11)

  • "Write When You Get Work" doesn't work. Not as a romance, not as a Robin Hood-tinged caper flick, not as a social commentary on racial inequity or classism, and not as a male-buddy picture.

    December 5, 2018 | Full Review…
  • With zero romance and nonsensical thrills, the only legitimate theft here is of the viewer's time.

    November 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • There are some interesting things going on, and some insight into New York's economic hierarchy, but the film veers off into a hard-to-believe crime heist, and, ultimately, none of it really hangs together.

    November 23, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Neither remotely credible nor more than minimally entertaining, Stacy Cochran's New York City romance, "Write When You Get Work," presents rich folk as gullible idiots and blue-collar crooks as heroes.

    November 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The core of the film is Ruth and Jonny's backstory, which is dosed out in frustrating droplets but is nonetheless affecting.

    November 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It should be a scathing study of class and privilege, but it's not sharp enough for that to work.

    November 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It feels all too convenient and Robin Hood-esque, almost too fantastical for a movie that has dwelled on the realness of life for the bulk of its duration.

    March 22, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Its resolution may have been playful and funny when used 40 years ago in a certain Jackie Chan film, but here it's just twee.
