Critic Reviews for Living the Dream

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

There is undeniable heart in Living the Dream, with its implicit criticism of mercenary values, but its world is populated solely by hustlers, recruiters and salesmen with nothing to sell.

A vapid mess that outwardly looks like a theatrical movie but just careens around from sequence to disconnected sequence like a badly tarted-up pinball.

"Will you stick with me, no matter what?" Brenda asks on more than one occasion. Unfortunately for the filmmakers, the audience's answer may well be "no."

This vanity production ... seems to want us to sympathize with characters who are both unlikable and stupid. Where at the beginning I thought the level of abuse [the hero] endures was absurd and unrealistic, by the end I wanted to join in.

An embarrassment of a vanity project.
