A clever, fun, and affecting romantic dramedy about love and rock-and-roll.

"Lucky Them" has that rare gift: It leaves its audiences warm and happy, as the best romantic comedies do.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2014-06-12
Director Megan Griffiths and writers Huck Botko and Emily Wachtel flesh out a female perspective that's refreshing and engrossing without demonizing or objectifying men.
Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, 2014-06-05
Toni Collette radiates smarts, humor and a world-weary cool in "Lucky Them."
Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com, 2014-05-30
For all its comic and sexual energy, Lucky Them is elevated most by its touching gravity.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2014-05-29
If the whole movie ends up feeling like "Eddie and the Cruisers" in flannel, the sharp cast members at least come as they are.
Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, 2014-05-29
Every once in a while, it's nice to have a good movie sneak up on you unawares. Lucky Them is as sneaky as they come.
Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2014-05-29
A low-key, solidly acted indie charmer from director Megan Griffiths.
Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 2014-05-28
Strangely Bechdel Test-failing and as far removed from real life as Middle Earth, Lucky Them nonetheless hits familiar beats in welcome and unexpected ways, and does it by the book.
Chris Packham, Village Voice, 2014-05-27
[A] terrifically acted dramedy directed by rising talent Megan Griffiths.
Justin Chang, Variety, 2013-09-12
A minor-key film distinguished by fine performances from Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church, and an unexpectedly poignant payoff.
David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter, 2013-09-11
Has any movie made during the past 10 years not presented female journalists as sluts?
Peter Keough, Boston Globe, 2014-07-17
This pleasant but eminently forgettable indie comedy is the sort of thing that makes you wonder whether the big names in the cast were having serious career problems, doing someone a favor, or just had a few weeks to kill.
J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2014-06-19
Collette, as amazing as she can be when given something to work with, can't lift this limp story through sheer will.
Tom Long, Detroit News, 2014-06-12
While Ms. Collette grounds Ellie and her emotions in a tough-minded plausibility, she can only hint at what the script fails to deliver: the complexities of a flawed woman's midlife crisis.
