Fresh: The funniest and saddest movie Mr. Baumbach has made so far, and also the riskiest.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Friday, March 19, 2010
Fresh: Roger Greenberg is not the kind of guy you want to wind up next to at a dinner party.
- Alice Tynan, Concrete Playground, Tuesday, July 27, 2010
Fresh: The movie has the easy, unforced feel of the temporary timeout in life that Roger himself has embarked on. The script is full of funny, observant lines.

Okay movie with one of the most abrupt endings (though it makes sense, I didn't expect it to end when it did). It's understandable why some people are giving it a low rating. It's definitely not everyone's cup of tea. I found it interesting for a while, but after a while, it got repetitive & eventually a drag. I didn't enjoy it enough to recommend it to anyone. Ben Stiller amazingly plays the protagonist who is not a very likable character & is not an anti-hero either (surely, all won't be able to identify with him. I was able to relate to the character a bit, though). Greta Gerwig is so-so, but Rhys Ifans was the best one.

I was stunned to see how poorly this is rating. I totally enjoyed this movie from start to finish! It was so refreshing to see Ben Stiller play something other than an idiot of some kind, and do it convincingly. Though not the most likeable of characters, all the way through, you could understand that he had issues, and this was affecting his behaviour. I still found him quite sympathetic, and Greta Gerwig, an actress I have not seen before, but hope to see more of, was lovely as the also mixed up girl he becomes involved with. Both their characters were so real and I found this just so relatable and well done. I also liked how they handled a few big issues as very matter of fact, not making a big deal of them, and not putting a typical sugary Hollywood solution to them to sugarcoat. These characters are what they are, and this would have to be one of my movies of the year! Excellent.

I never used to love the kind of movies in which nearly nothing happens and also comedies which dont make us laugh loud.What turns me on in Greenbergwas lovely characters specially Ben Stiller's,funny dialogues and overall humorous atmosphere of the movie.
