      Critics Consensus

      Flannel Pajamas is a talky and overwrought love story that is redeemed by fine performances and character insights.

      Audience Member Quite an insightful portrayal of relationship. I'd like it more if briefer, shorter & less trivial. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Thank you Netflix for recommending this one to me as well...Netflix is becoming very adept at figuring out what the viewer likes, its scary! For those getting ready to date and socialize, this movie is a must! Tells the story of two people that met on a blind date arranged by mutual friends. The rest is a tale of how love and romance can dissipate as time goes by. Some relationships can withstand time and all sorts of differences but others cannot. Excellent job by writer/director Jeff Lipsky, witty and solid script. Good acting as well. Stuart (Justin Kirk) and Nicole (Julianne) meet on a diner during a blind date. They hit it off, Stuart becomes Nicole's knight in shining armor. Then life continues as you see these people develop, grow, mature and along the way the magic of love and romance vanishes. Definitely recommended and available on Netflix instant streaming. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I was expecting so much more...seemed like a good movie up untill they got married then it was just a disappointment till the end! The best part was the ending credit song Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoyed this movie. A well acted romance that honestly felt like an emotional horror movie (a genre I just made up on the spot now); likable actors, intimate performances, whirlwind romance and devastating heartbreak on both sides of the relationship. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked it. Rodd thought it was so-so. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A finely crafted indie drama, with outstanding performances by Julianne Nicholson and Justin Kirk. It moves forward with such amazing clarity, and painful honesty. Anyone that has ever had to go through a divorce, or even a difficult doomed relationship, can recognize how real this movie is....and sad. This film shows a non-sugarcoated portrayal of love.

      Joshua Land Time Out Rated: 2/6 Sep 22, 2007 Full Review Bruce Westbrook Houston Chronicle Flannel Pajamas is so gorged with gab it feels like a filibuster. Rated: 1/4 Apr 1, 2007 Full Review Ann Hornaday Washington Post Better to rent Scenes From a Marriage, Manhattan or My Dinner With Andre and stay home -- flannel pajamas optional. Mar 22, 2007 Full Review Tara Thorne The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia) Tough but worthy. Jul 12, 2016 Full Review Don Willmott Filmcritic.com Twenty minutes or so of cuts would probably have helped the movie pack a more potent punch. Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 30, 2007 Full Review Eric D. Snider EricDSnider.com They ought to have cut both the film and the marriage a little shorter. Rated: C+ Apr 9, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews
