      Audience Member Very funny movie! Zach Ward is Great in it! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member In trying to qualify as mordant satire, charming rom-com, uplifting buddy movie about underdogs trying to stick it to the man and the most meta story ever told, L.A. Twister sprains itself badly. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Stephen Holden New York Times The barely watchable buddy comedy L.A. Twister is so sloppily put together it bungles its recycled movie-within-a-movie conceit. Rated: 1/5 Dec 9, 2004 Full Review Matt Weitz Dallas Morning News Fun and entertaining but ends up lending an air of contrivance that keeps you from taking it too much to heart. Rated: C+ Sep 2, 2004 Full Review Janice Page Boston Globe Pape and Saville-Read are so busy winking and chuckling over their own clever lampooning of Hollywood conventions that they forget to make the rest of us care. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 27, 2004 Full Review Robert W. Butler Kansas City Star There are some cute moments here but nothing to write home about. The inside-Hollywood jokes are just that. Dec 10, 2004 Full Review Rob Thomas Capital Times (Madison, WI) The whole thing seems way too self-congratulatory; an indie movie that's all about celebrating people who make indie movies. Rated: 1.5/4 Nov 18, 2004 Full Review Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone TheMovieChicks.com This L.A. story is more like a straight to video kind of movie than one to rush out and see on the big screen. Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 3, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews
