      Audience Member cute story, local (vancouver) production/cast, but that showed. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member cute story, local (vancouver) production/cast, but that showed. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Slow, not very funny and generally boring. It started as a pseudo-documentary then lost its way and became a fictional comedy. I was not impressed at all. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A well done Moc Doc that is held together by strange but believable characters, heart, and a small mystery thrown in for good measure. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member A mean-spirited Canadian mockumentary that's well executed and cohesive. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved this movie. It was just so hilarious and seemed so realistic in many ways. Not a perfect movie, but still a slice. I hear it is a 'cult classic' with parking meter attendants across North America. Who else will speak up for these poor despised folks!!

      Susan Walker Toronto Star Well before the 87-minute mark is reached, the hilarity has died down to a few titters. Rated: 3/5 May 14, 2004 Full Review Rick Groen Globe and Mail The result is caustic in its wit but also commercial in its appeal, and that's a tricky juggling act to bring off. Rated: 3/4 May 14, 2004 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Steve Rhodes Internet Reviews While I found much to admire in it, I never laughed, and I say this as both a mockumentary fan and as someone whose funny bone is easily tickled. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 18, 2005 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 21, 2004 Full Review Ryan Cracknell Movie Views The Delicate Art of Parking is held together because of its strong characters. They're funny, they're quirky and, most of all, they're realistic. May 25, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews
