Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Gerwig is adorable, but that's both good and bad, as the movie can't stop cuing us to see that Lola's winsomeness will rescue her.

At 24 minutes, Lola Versus might be a middling episode of a sitcom like "New Girl." At 87 minutes, it is a gracefully aimed arrow shot in...

Has a Woody Allen Feel

Charming

By i3adfish7
Thoroughly enjoyed this film and Greta Gerwig's endearing performance, reminiscent of a young and clueless Alicia Silverstone (in a good way). A fun story that takes place in the best city of all,...
