      Critics Consensus

      Shopgirl is precariously slight, but it has some intriguing moments, and Danes is luminous.

      Zadie Smith Daily Telegraph (UK) Steve Martin's script sneers at the vanity of fake LA girls and their plastic surgery. He is in no position to sneer. Jan 17, 2018 Full Review Victoria Segal New Statesman For most women, finding a pair of black gloves on their doorstep would signal "Boston Strangler" rather than "man of my dreams!" and it is this sense of unintentional creepiness that asphyxiates Shopgirl. Sep 26, 2017 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Kathy Fennessy Seattle Film Blog ...the conclusion feels borrowed from Woody Allen's oeuvre... I suspect [Anand] Tucker had Annie Hall in mind. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 19, 2021 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter Danes and Schwartzman brilliantly perform against the icky subtext of their not-so-cute meet. Jeremy works because he doesn't appear to have an agenda. May 9, 2020 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A glum love story. Rated: C+ Apr 14, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Serge M I was excited to watch this movie because of Jason Schwartzman. However, this was the most boring, pointless film I've ever seen. Long, plotless shots with lifeless, cheesy music. Terrible dialogue, boring characters. 0/10 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/30/23 Full Review Gareth v Not a bad movie, but this Steve Martin project does come across as being quite creepy. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/20/23 Full Review April B One of my favorite movies of all time. Love the dynamics of it all. Very Artistic and Dark. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/23 Full Review Viv L There is something about this movie, I just love it. Steve Martin's character is serious, he barely cracks a smile, let alone a joke - it's unnerving. The mental health struggles for all three main characters are laid out across the frames of the movie in a slow unpicking. And the music is a beautiful and moving complement to that unpicking. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Sometimes I feel like critics just love a nice glass of wine to go along with a boring film . Acting was fine but that’s it . 1.8. Why did they gotta make Steve Martin such a prick you could tell it was unnatural for him . I feel like the goal was to try to make it kinda a gatsby esque film but they failed Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/21 Full Review camille l Alors que les vingt premières minutes du film semblent indiquer une romcom tout à fait indigente entre un Jason Schwartzmann immature et une Claire Danes plus convaincante qu'à l'accoutumée, c'est lorsque Steve Martin entre en scène que le film se met à ressembler à quelque chose de différent. Sur un ton plutôt mélancolique sans non plus tomber dans la parodie indie, Shopgirl est une belle et émouvante histoire d'émancipation, portée par un excellent Steve Martin qui écrit aussi le scénario issu de sa propre nouvelle. Anand Tucker n'est pas le plus grand réalisateur du monde, mais il trouve quelques idées sympathiques de mise en scène, faisant de Shopgirl un vrai bon moment reposant. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
