Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Joe C I straight-up vibed with this flick for mad reasons. Real talk, I had no clue what I was gettin' into... it kicks off all fun and playful, then hits you with mad twists and reveals that take it deep, all while keeping that quirky vibe. It's like it's juggling genres like it's nothing – going from comedy to crime, poignant drama to straight-up romance, smooth as butter. The main peeps got that undeniable chemistry, and I was ridin' with them right from the jump. This joint is pure entertainment, with surprises poppin' up left and right. No doubt, gotta give it a solid cosign – highly recommend checkin' it out! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Brad P The Misadventures of Mistress Maneater, directed by C.J. Julianus, is a solid, well-acted film. It is a unique romantic comedy. The lead actress, Lorissa Julianus, is talented and believable in the role of Ava. I was pleasantly surprised by the heart of this film. Nice twist at the end too. If you enjoy off-the-wall romantic comedies, check this out. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Seana K I was so pleasantly surprised by both the production value and some of the genuine laughs of this film. This was not a tiny story to tell, and the filmmaker did it with vigor and commitment, which I totally appreciated as a viewer! It was a way bigger film than most indie companies try to tackle, which is impressive in and of itself! The cast is strong, and funny -- there were more than a few laugh out loud moments in the script, well-delivered by the cast. Which isn't to say it didn't have its more emotional moments, it did -- again, well handled. Overall, it was a fun romp of a film, with a game and talented cast, a supportive score, and a higher budget feel! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Lana A The Misadventures of Mistress Maneater is an action, drama and a comedy - all-in-one. Spiraling around the traditional money vs decency dilemma, the film however has a very intriguing plot and reveals a lot of very dark secrets in the lives of the characters. I liked that the tense dramatic moments were often finished up with sarcasm and humor, saving the film from going too far into the dark end. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/24 Full Review Kristina M The Misadventures of Mistress Maneater is just as charming as it sounds. Writer Lorrisa Julianus and Director C.J. Julianus did an amazing job with this sexy, wry comedic delight. I was surprised to see actors Molly Morgan (as Ashley) and Bonnie Morgan (as Mardee). Yes, they are sisters and you may remembering seeing them in Two and a Half Men or Rings respectively. Anyway, Molly and Bonnie are great in this action filled comedy but it is Lorrisa Julianus (as Ava) that really steals the show. She is brilliant in the role. If you are looking for a romantic action comedy The Misadventures of Mistress Manesater does not disappoint. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It has some captivating moments when on top of its game. Rated: B- May 16, 2021 Full Review Marie Asner Phantom Tollbooth In Mistress Maneater, body language does the acting. Whether it be face or biceps, it tells a story. Ava can do a page of dialogue with just her face, and this is matched with Shannon Brown and Mickey O'Sullivan. Rated: 3/4 Apr 16, 2021 Full Review Alan Ng Film Threat It's not that The Misadventures of Mistress Maneater is horrible, I've just seen it before, and I've heard these jokes over and over again. Still, hang in there for a fun and exciting ride. Rated: 7/10 Apr 9, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
