      Jenny Nulf Austin Chronicle Healing is not linear, and I Used to Be Funny adeptly displays that process, exploring Sam’s pain without making the experience of watching the film painful, and honestly refreshing exploration of a subject that’s so often brutal to witness. Nov 17, 2023 Full Review Weiting Liu Little White Lies Sennott is perfectly cast, portraying Sam as simultaneously lifeless and hilarious with her default blasé attitude and dry-wit humor. Mar 17, 2023 Full Review Amanda the Jedi Amanda the Jedi (Youtube) It's hard to juggle something being so funny and heartbreaking at the same time, but this movie nails it. Rachel Sennott is a genuine talent. Nov 30, 2023 Full Review V.S. Wells Georgia Straight I Used to Be Funny is smart, timely, and deeply felt. There’s plenty to chew on -- though it’s bittersweet. Nov 6, 2023 Full Review Matthew Simpson That Shelf It is an excellent performance that anchors I Used to Be Funny and it should add to Sennot’s indie and dramatic cred. Oct 14, 2023 Full Review Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News It’s a film that cements Sennott’s status as one of the brightest new stars in the film industry.
