TV Guide

By Maitland McDonagh
Ethan and Lenny's story is silly, good-natured and full of unlikely moves, just like the titular twister.

San Francisco Chronicle

The semiserious comedy by director Sven Pape is in its own category, and unfortunately it's not always an interesting one.

L.A. Weekly

By Ernest Hardy
The film offers no new insights into its people or into the dynamics of the Hollywood machine -- the whole affair, played for low-intensity laughs, is numbingly familiar.

Los Angeles Times

In trying to qualify as mordant satire, charming rom-com, uplifting buddy movie about underdogs trying to stick it to the man and the most meta story ever told, L.A. Twister sprains itself badly.

Boston Globe

By Janice Page
Serves up a silly story and clunky dialogue that gets better than it deserves from Jennifer Aspen as Lenny's would-be girlfriend.
Full Review

Dallas Observer

It's the solipsistic, obvious, misogynistic, and occasionally redeeming tale.

The New York Times

By Stephen Holden
Barely watchable.
