Not really that great  ninjafingers  3 star

You could do better. Keep looking. It's slow and not that interesting at any point along the journey.

If find that you don’t allow yourself to connect with characters in the first portion of the movie, you will be unable to appreciate their “their rebirth”. The acting of the two stars was perfection. Not only individually but also their embracing one another. The Director created an environment that was believable and authentic.

False advertising here  KamDSP  1 star

It’s hard to believe anyone could mistake this film for a comedy. It’s not.

Great acting, story, direction  polixter  4 star

What a fascinating peek into another world - and a true one - where real people in their mundane lives experiencing extraordinary things. The juxtaposition of the a sad little reality and audacious circumstances is great. The catharsis is real. The acting by its two lead characters exceptional.

Wouldn't Call This a Comedy  BabyBoomerWriter  3 star

Perhaps a younger person would think the portrayal of a squalid lifestyle was comedic, but I saw nothing funny about this movie. Many a writer suffers financially, but not all find such an unusual way to pay the rent on a seedy apartment. It was poignant, sad and believable, but I would not call if a comedy. The acting was excellent and the film made it was easy to believe you were actually in New York watering holes and bookstores. I would not watch this again....too depressing/realistic.

2 Great Performances  sjamesbradley  4 star

Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant give their best performances in CYEFM.

cynsa
poignant, believable, darkly hilarious  cynsa  5 star

McCarthy and Grant have a great thing going--partners in bitter hilarity. McCarthy really sells the why of her descent into criminality but you slide on down with her: is her crime worse for lying to a friend or defrauding the public when they're getting what they really want? Ultimately, Israel was cheating herself, as she learns in this bittersweet comedy about finding your real muse, and true friendship.
