Lolo

6/10
Comedy
 

On holiday in the south of France, chic Parisian sophisticate Violette meets life-loving IT geek Jean-René. Against all odds, there’s a real chemistry between them and at the end of the summer, Jean-René wastes no time in joining his beloved in Paris. But there’s trouble in paradise, and a third party swiftly appears to shatter the couple’s idyll: Lolo, Violette’s ultra-possessive 19-year-old son, who is determined to get rid of his mother’s lover, whatever it takes…

More Info:
  • Sara Stewart

    Even the most extreme punishments are softened by hilariously neurotic dialogue. Vive la Delpy!

    New York Post Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Lolo is a fun, airy movie, but it's also unafraid of complexity.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Boyd van Hoeij

    Lolo has a solid laughs-per-minute rate and enough twists to overcome the occasional screenplay hiccup.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    Lolo features long stretches of perhaps her most accomplished and enjoyable character-comedy yet. But as often with filmmakers for whom a certain register comes almost too easily, Delpy seems impatient with herself and her facility for spiky, verbal sparring and pithy self-deprecating put-downs.

  • Glenn Kenny

    This sometimes rewarding but also bothersomely uneven comedy is Julie Delpy’s sixth feature film as a director; she also co-wrote.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    A curiously unsentimental director of romantic comedies, Julie Delpy sees romance for the work that it primarily is.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Many little touches in the film reflect the offbeat hand of Ms. Delpy. But she sells herself short by not giving the mother-son conflict a bit of a sharper edge beyond Lolo’s awfulness.

  • Peter Rainer

    It’s all meant to be funnier than it is.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    The film is at its best when its central trio fumbles around the same circle of hell they’ve obliviously created for themselves, making the best of a situation that is much worse than they could ever imagine.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    I appreciated the effort Delpy, directing her sixth feature, puts forth in trying to spice up the genre. But that doesn’t mean I enjoyed it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Vanessa H. Larson

    Lolo presents a sympathetic take on the ways that midlife romance can push us to reevaluate our relationships, even — maybe especially — the ones we think we know best.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Lolo is entirely too familiar, too predictable, a character study in romantic mishaps that’s far less interesting than the name Delpy cooked up for her “little alpine bunny,” a passive, pretty creature worthy of our contempt, at least as Wells envisioned him.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Well cast and funny just often enough to recommend.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Julie Delpy’s latest directorial effort juggles some potentially delicious ideas, but Lolo proves to be an exasperating romantic comedy that flirts with darker terrain it never has the guts or wit to really explore.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Julia Cooper

    Clumsy and erratic, Lolo is a slapdash comedy of errors that slips on its own banana peel but gets few laughs.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    This strained, often crass comedy traffics in broadness and inconsistency far more than anything smart, clever or dimensional. That might be more forgivable if the film was at least funny. It's not.

  • Peter Bradshaw

    This romp is just embarrassing.
