Bujalski's script is smarter and much weirder (in a good way) than the standard romantic comedy.
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 2015-08-14
A movie like this feels like a dream challenge for an actor. It lives and dies not sheerly by the writing and the direction of the script, but by the cast's organic adherence to both.
Wesley Morris, Grantland, 2015-06-12
Sharply funny slacker comedy.
J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2015-06-12
The rom-com isn't such a lost cause, after all. It was just waiting for someone like indie filmmaker Andrew Bujalski to resuscitate it.
Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, 2015-06-04
Not a whole lot happens, but you get to know an interesting trio, and leave them feeling satisfied that it was time well spent.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2015-06-04
What happens when a rigorously non-mainstream filmmaker tries to reverse-engineer a mainstream romantic comedy? The result, in all its charming perversity, is "Results."
Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2015-06-04
"Results" is a smooth transition for Bujalski from the fringes to more commercial work. It's heartening that he didn't give up his calling-card observational humor to do it.
Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, 2015-06-04
There's an absurdist edge, but with nothing of the smart aleck about it. Rather than use wit as a way of bypassing thought and emotion, Bujalski's concerns are serious and his attitude toward his characters is warm without being indulgent.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2015-06-04
This droll, intelligent farce is most poignant as a portrait of modern alienation that explores how money, service work and self-improvement leave individuals stranded and alone.
Inkoo Kang, TheWrap, 2015-05-29
Somebody needs to give Andrew Bujalski a TV series. If "Results," his unlikely but delightful new film set in and around an Austin fitness studio run by hard-bodied Guy Pearce, were a TV pilot, I would be hooked on the show already.
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, 2015-05-28
Only toward the end do you realize that the characters have been arranged into a pleasing and familiar romantic-comedy triangle and that you've been watching a beautifully played game of underhand slow-pitch screwball.
A.O. Scott, New York Times, 2015-05-28
You'd expect Bujalski, who made Beeswax and Computer Chess and a couple of other extreme indies, to poke fun at gym culture, the ultimate soft target. And he does, but sweetly and without disparagement ...
Ella Taylor, NPR, 2015-05-28
Bujalski crafts a quirky romance with fitness-industry comedy Results, shaping flawed characters into people you might just admire.
Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 2015-05-28
With Bujalski, this is business as usual, but by the standards of the contemporary indie rom-com, it's refreshingly unpredictable and thoughtful.
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club, 2015-05-28
A perfectly chosen cast sells this unhurried comedy, which flows unconventionally but is still, by a long stretch, the most mainstream-friendly picture Bujalski has made.
John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-05-26
Bujalski knows how to reveal the immaturities and hangups people hide behind money, ambition, and the pursuit of a better body.
Abby Garnett, Village Voice, 2015-05-26
Like Bujalski's early mumblecore work, this is sensitive and meandering - and just a little bit patience-testing.
Cath Clarke, Time Out, 2015-05-26
One of the strangest and strongest of recent romantic triangles forms in the course of this lyrical, fanatically realistic comedy, written and directed by Andrew Bujalski.
Richard Brody, New Yorker, 2015-05-25
