October 11, 2013
A likably blunt glimpse into the geek microcosm.... Funny, uneven story about a misfit among misfits.

October 11, 2013
By failing to push their galumphing antihero toward the self-knowledge he so desperately needs, [the directors] rob the film of its emotional stakes.

There's much to like here.

Zero Charisma succeeds in delivering a raw look at an unappreciated idiot who would be king.

October 10, 2013
This blurring of allegiances creates a certain level of complexity that we don't typically find in comedies; then again, this isn't a typical comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Top Critic
October 10, 2013
A barbed indie character study that seems perched, like Big Fan, between dark humor and probing psychodrama.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 10, 2013
Zero Charisma is a comedy by classification, but its cruelties have a way of turning it into a psychodrama inadvertently. The tone is often as abrasive as its hero.

October 9, 2013
A fascinating portrait of an initially stereotypical mouth-breathing man-child addicted to role-playing games of his own invention.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
October 8, 2013
A consistently entertaining, character-driven comedy set within a community rapidly losing out to online options.
October 8, 2013
It stops short of leaving its would-be hero in despair, but never finds a reason for those who don't share his fixations to identify with him.
October 8, 2013
This is raw and affecting, a real movie rather than fan-con fun.
October 7, 2013
It's a pity that it hews to sitcom-like formula rather than using this bank of knowledge and sympathy to create something more original.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
