For a Good Time, Call...


College "frenemies" Lauren and Katie move in together after losing a relationship and rent control, respectively. Sharing Katie's late grandmother's apartment in New York City, the girls bicker with each other until one fateful night, when Katie's noisy bedroom activities make Lauren barge in and discover a dirty little secret. This revelation brings them closer together, and Lauren (the brains) and Katie (the talent) concoct a wildly successful business venture. As profits swell, the girls reevaluate their hopes and dreams and realize that just because someone pees in your hair in college doesn't mean she won't be your best friend 10 years later.

More Info:
  • Noel Murray

    The notion of a love story that's really about two women becoming friends is gimmicky, I'll grant, but Graynor and Miller are so charming together, and the movie is so focused and funny.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    This movie is basically where some small-screen comedy in the last year has been: "2 Broke Girls," "New Girl," and, their far superior sister, "Girls."

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    For a Good Time, Call... tells the tender tale of two roommates who team up to launch a phone-sex line. Whatever their virtues or flaws, each of these movies makes the dirtiest episode of "Sex and the City" look like Doris Day fluff.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    It's a somewhat formulaic romp, but it's an utterly winning one.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    It's the movie's affectionate portrait of female friendship, along with Miller and Graynor's loose, playful performances, that make this whole imperfect soufflé rise as high as it does.

    Slate Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The confusion in For a Good Time, Call… is delightful, the phone-sex talk sweetening the vibe. Justin Long is peerlessly funny as the girls' gay pal, but the movie belongs to Graynor, who's like Sandra Bullock with a touch of Ginger Rogers–y brass.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Doesn't aspire to be more than a broad, sloppy, old-fashioned sitcom with a sexy gimmick. But it is quite funny.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Chris Packham

    Lauren and Katie aren't defined by their attitudes toward men; they're defined by being fu--ing funny and awesome.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • John DeFore

    A feel-good raunch-com whose dirty-talk plot comes from a convincingly female perspective instead of feeling like cut-and-paste Apatow.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Doesn't rise much above sitcom level in material or execution, but provides enough laughs and goodwill to be disarmingly entertaining.

    Variety Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    While its heart is always in the right place, the humor – especially in the sludgy first act – is hit or miss.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The film is worth seeing for the humor and for its high level of energy, but it falls short of being the "complete package." It's probably a better pick for home viewing than a trip to a theater.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Travis, making his feature debut, gets very likable performances out of his female stars. And it's nice to see sex given its due as a wide, wild buffet rather than the standard missionary, bra-on fare we're usually served in a rom-com. Mmm-hmmm!

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    In a rare instance of truth in advertising, the movie actually is a good time.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Even if the film should be retitled "For a Fairly Good Time, Call ..." at least we're not back on the couch with another variation on the same old group of arrested-development young adult males, hanging on to their adolescence with as much determination as their marijuana intake allows.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    The dialogue, penned by Miller with Katie Anne Naylon, is subversively salty: surpassing even those Judd Apatow comedies to which it's indebted, this is almost certainly the filthiest movie ever to bear the Universal logo.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Josh Winning

    All right, it's not up there with "Bridesmaids" but, thanks to a game Graynor (here channelling a young Bette Midler), a revolving door of cameos and some gloriously smutty pillow talk, For A Good Time delivers, yes, exactly that.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The most adorably filthy movie you may ever see.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kimber Myers

    By sex line standards, For a Good Time, Call... clearly succeeds –- it starts off slow, includes plenty of dirty talk, then gives us the happy ending we came for –- but our needs are a little bit greater when it comes to good films.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The main distinction of this particular raunchfest, about the economic opportunities available to women in the phone-sex industry, is that it does not reconcile its slim narrative conflict with a big, fat wedding.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    Easily the daffiest movie you've ever seen that also references incestuous role-playing games.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    In its way, the film is more concerned with the love between friends than the sex between strangers.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Does its share of teasing, but amounts to nothing serious.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The performances by Miller and Graynor are high-spirited enough that you yearn to see them in worthier material. The potential is there. If there's anything more seductive to Manhattanites than sex, it's a cheap apartment overlooking Gramercy Park.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jess Righthand

    Even if a good phone-sex movie does exist, For a Good Time, Call . . . is woefully, definitively not it.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrew Schenker

    While the heart of the movie is the at-times strained relationship between the two leads, it all unfolds rather by the numbers, dictated more by the expected arc of such things than the demands of the characters.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    There are several cameos in For a Good Time, Call… by famous actors portraying the girls' phone-sex clients, including Kevin Smith and Seth Rogen, but they've been clearly been left to improvise, and they don't put much effort into their routines.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    In other words, For a Good Time is not a good time. For that, you'll have to dust off your Nintendo and reacquaint yourself with "The Legend of Zelda" -- and hope that one of these days somebody can give "Bridesmaids" some real competition.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • David Fear

    What really hurts is seeing Jamie Travis's name attached; for those of us who love his extraordinary "Patterns" trilogy, watching the talented Toronto filmmaker add his characterically kitschy touch to such a witless, faux-edgy movie can only be described as a Travis-ty.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Save the money you might spend for a ticket to see For a Good Time, Call... and just read a dive bar's restroom wall for free. That's the sub-level of comedy here, with a litany of crude sexual euphemisms and phallic images passed off as jokes.
