      Noel Murray Nashville Scene Ultimately, this film is about two well-meaning people coming to grips with who they actually are versus who they've always thought they were supposed to be. And when it's on a roll, While We're Young is hilarious. Aug 4, 2016 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire It's a very funny movie, and a beautifully cast one May 28, 2016 Full Review Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com The film asks thought-provoking questions about modern technology, friendship and even documentaries that will likely cause deep discussions afterward. Rated: A- Apr 17, 2015 Full Review Rolando Gallego EscribiendoCine Noah Baumbach makes While We're Young an expression of contemporary city life... [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 7/10 Jan 17, 2024 Full Review Jordan Brooks Vague Visages A plethora of likable characters and tidy wrap-ups diminish the artistic potential of While We’re Young, as Baumbach doesn’t compromise the film’s abilities as a general crowdpleaser. Aug 3, 2023 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies “While We’re Young” gives its audience things to ponder and to chew on while also being deftly funny and unflinchingly human. It just can’t quite see its strengths through till the end. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 21, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Will A Some funny moments, but I thought there would be more of a plot twist or revelation, but the movie fizzles out. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Alec B Sometimes the dialogue is a little too obvious, especially when Baumbach's already made his point quite clear. However, he is still able to find all those great little awkward gems of humor and like his last film he seems to be finding more positivity in his characters. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Gareth v While not Noah Baumbach's finest work, it has his tell tale fingerprints all over it and that can only be a positive thing. The performances of all the actors involved makes this movie worth seeing for that reason alone. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/18/23 Full Review steve d Some strong work by its cast but it just comes off uncomfortable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Tony S Life may seem at times like a set-up. Coincidences that aren't. People that fake their way to what they want. As a documentary filmmaker with certain sensibilities about truth, that can be a problem. That is problem for Josh Srebnick, played by Ben Stiller. He gets played and the rest of the world, including his father-in-law, a renowned documentary filmmaker, sees things differently. An interesting film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/27/22 Full Review dave s If you can relate to a pair of married forty-something-year-olds (Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts) struggling to come to terms with their slow slide into middle-age, you'll probably enjoy Noah Baumbach's While We're Young. Similarly, if you can relate to a pair of married twenty-something-year-olds (Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried) who believe in self-entitlement and the fact that the world is their oyster, you'll also probably enjoy the movie. Otherwise, it's a bit of a crapshoot. Like all of Baumbach's movies, it's got some snappy dialogue, interesting characters and nice set pieces. On the other hand, the interesting characters also tend to be pretentious and condescending. Clearly, While We're Young is a love it or hate it affair. Take your pick.
