It's a wistful charmer.

"The Giant Mechanical Man" won't change your life but it might lighten your heart.
Tom Long, Detroit News  full review
Replete with eye-roll-inducing contrivances and heavy-handed symbolism - both lovers share dreams of their teeth falling out - this arrested-development comedy panders to the work-averse by taking easy aim at ambitious careerists.
Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times  full review
Under a few layers of urban twee is a sly, knowing little romantic comedy full of spiky performances.
Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News  full review
Grinding its gears a bit in an attempt to achieve maximum quirkiness, "The Giant Mechanical Man" will meet most audiences' standards for "charming."
John Anderson, Variety  full review
Fischer ... imbues Janice with a wounded soulfulness that cuts right through the cliches.
Ernest Hardy, Village Voice  full review
A romance whose anodyne find-your-bliss theme is likeable but underwhelming, Lee Kirk's The Giant Mechanical Man doesn't fully exploit its premise's charms.
