Critic Reviews of "She's Funny That Way"Chicago Sun-TimesAugust 27, 2015
The actors do their best with a hit-and-miss screenplay.Chicago ReaderAugust 27, 2015
The giggly men's-magazine tone, especially in Bogdanovich's treatment of call girls, makes the movie seem weirdly anachronistic.New York Magazine/VultureAugust 24, 2015
She's Funny That Way often displays an old-school generosity and polish, and at least one breakout performance - but just as often, its moments of inspiration are tempered by miscasting and shrill attempts at humor.RogerEbert.comAugust 21, 2015
Too many times the characters in this movie sprint across the line separating quirky charm from know-somethingish affectation, and then stay on the wrong side of it.Los Angeles TimesAugust 20, 2015
So hopelessly nostalgic about the madcap fizz and fury of screwball pictures, it never works up a head of steam as a funny, in-this-moment comedy on its own.The Asahi Shimbun GLOBE (Japan)December 19, 2016
She's Funny That Way is trying very hard to be a sexy screwball comedy. It tries so hard, with such a contrived and silly story, that it only succeeds in wearing the audience down. [Full review in Japanese]rec.arts.movies.reviewsSeptember 04, 2016
Bogdanovich, the principal proponent of the latter-day screwball comedy, wastes a large and capable cast here.New Zealand HeraldMay 04, 2016
It's a lighthearted, somewhat amusing romp written by Bogdanovich and his ex-wife Louise Stratten, filled with interweaving stories that twist and turn, and are amplified when it becomes clear this isn't the first time Arnold has "mentored" a prostitute.South China Morning PostApril 06, 2016
Co-written by Bogdanovich with his ex-wife Louise Stratten ... the story is brisk, breezy and executed with panache.East Bay ExpressSeptember 16, 2015
Amusing piffle for audiences congenitally annoyed by new-fangled comedies.
