      Nathan Rabin AV Club Long, shapeless, and painfully unfunny, Wirey Spindell confirms its maker's status as one of the most distinctively awful filmmakers of his generation. Jul 10, 2006 Full Review Daniel M. Kimmel Variety ...a teen sex comedy for the grown-up arthouse crowd. Apr 27, 2005 Full Review A.O. Scott New York Times To say that this movie is true to life is only to say that it's banal, boring and confusing. May 21, 2003 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com Where writer-director Eric Schaeffer shoots himself in the foot is by succumbing to the narcissistic voice within.

      Audience Member In all honesty, the way the film was paced and the sheer unpredictability of some of its moments kept me tuned in the entire 101 minutes. There is some wittiness in the film's dialogue. Where the film fails is, as mentioned in the NY Times, the film reflects the flaws and self-absorbedness of Wirey, not reflects upon it. As a result, the film comes off as way too rambling and pretentious to be considered substantive. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm a big fan of the dialogue of this film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member My memory is foggy when it comes to this movie but I remember it being extremely risque. Fortunately risque is right up my alley. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely brilliant writing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Lengthy, but worth it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member One of those hidden Gem flicks that not many have seen. Some really nice dramatic moments with witty dialog.
