More Info:
  • Todd Gilchrist

    If you're a fan of upper-crust New England intellectuals or one of them yourself, Ceremony is probably your perfect movie.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    If the scenario is unconvincing, debuting writer-director Max Winkler has a feel for the dynamics of this kind of ritualized yet informal social gathering, and his affection for his characters is clear.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    By the time Ceremony reaches its admittedly clever finale, you're too wrung out from Angarano's tiresome antics and Winkler's unconvincing dialogue to care who ends up marrying whom.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Like its protagonist, Ceremony is as smart as it is exasperating.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The offbeat comedy is not entirely devoid of charm, but its derivativeness is almost embarrassing.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    In its mixture of the quirky and the downbeat, Ceremony aspires to be a hybrid of Noah Baumbach's "Margot at the Wedding" and Wes Anderson's "Rushmore" but falls far short.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Trouble is, it feels like a film going through the motions, never finding mooring in believable human feelings.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    A story that never finds a reason for its own existence.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Ceremony passes by quickly and painlessly, its annoyances easily forgotten. On the plus side, Thurman and Angarano do work up a sweet odd-pair chemistry.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Ceremony is a callow movie: Winkler exhibits no comprehension of the class anxieties he addresses, and extends precocity into adulthood. That callowness is Ceremony's subject scarcely makes it funnier.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • John DeFore

    Sporadically funny though less effective at selling its melancholy undercurrents.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    Despite a few grace notes and mildly clever twists, this handsomely produced indie is such a grating turnoff throughout its first third that its minor virtues may be discovered only by insomniac latenight cable viewers.

    Variety Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    At its best, the movie is an unbearably precious slice of stale imitation Wes Anderson. But at its worst, it's dull and strangled by its own would-be jaunty deadpan.
