Critic Reviews for The Competition

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

This ponderous misfire removes the laughs from romantic comedy in the name of trying to find the essence of true love.

Top Critic

The will-they-won't-they of the film is a non-starter, and as such the film's climax is stripped of suspense and even the most basic of dramatic payoffs.

January 22, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Predictable romcom has lots of drinking, some stereotypes.

October 8, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

No chemistry, no spark, nothing to see here but two career second-bananas failing failing decades past their '90s peak.

September 20, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

I'm not sure you could find a less engaging and more generic film title than The Competition.

April 8, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Contrived with stilted, clunky dialogue and intrusive music, but it's nonetheless engaging and uplifting sans dullness and schmaltz. Thora Birch gives a tender, nuanced performance that exudes charisma. She's just as radiant as Leslie Caron was in Gigi.
