    At its core, Wild Canaries is a reminder that relationships require a sense of adventure, and maybe a little mystery, to keep the magic alive. Indie comedies, as the film proves, benefit from the same.

  • David Ehrlich

    Wild Canaries may be modest stuff, but its madcap misadventures are loaded with honesty, and it earns the conclusion that love never feels like a cage when you fly with the right flock.

  • Eric Kohn

    In spite of the constant activity, there's not a whole lot going on, but it's still a fun place to visit.

  • Nick Prigge

    Lawrence Michael Levine's film occupies a sweet spot between the self-aware and taut.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    The 21st-century combo of screwball comedy and half-baked thriller in Wild Canaries isn’t exactly like anything you’ve seen before, and it offers an unpredictable ride that’s kind of fun, or at least sporadically simulates fun. Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Mr. Levine spins a caper that wins you over more through tenacity than through originality.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Levine’s script does a clever job of keeping numerous balls in the air over the taut 99-minute running time, and the writer is especially good at using the information he feeds us in unexpectedly resourceful, double-edged ways.

  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The story Levine spins out of this premise has a rambunctious, woolly quality, though in the end there may be too many stringy loose ends for him to weave in properly. Still, Wild Canaries has its quiet charms.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    The disconnect between Wild Canaries’ two modes is sometimes too wide, making the movie come across either as a sloppy mystery or a scatterbrained melodrama. More often, the mix keeps the film lively and unpredictable.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Katie Walsh

    The genre play is an interesting and original take on what has become a cliché genre of Brooklyn relationship dramedy. But unfortunately, the execution of the story is bungled along the way.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Strip away all the flimsy copycat stuff, including the cheesy retro synth score, and what lurks beneath is a perceptive portrait of contemporary thirtysomething relationships, no silly sleuthing required.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • John DeFore

    Despite an appealing cast, though, neither comedy nor suspense really takes flight until very near the end, largely due to a script that isn't equal to the filmmakers' enthusiasm.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Sobczynski

    On paper, Wild Canaries sounds like it has all the ingredients for a reasonably diverting comedy, but they just never quite pull together into a cohesive or entertaining whole. Full Review
