Critic Reviews for Before You Know It
The dialogue is clever and the premise witty. It's a New York-y film that has the zip of a farce, without all the nuttiness. (There's a little nuttiness.)
A charming and quirky New York tale, if a bit disorganized, finding its voice when it quiets down to just listen to the three women at the center of the story.
"Before You Know It" isn't without its moments, but it could have used more of them. Sometimes it's a slog.
"Before You Know It" isn't a deep movie, or a hilarious one, and Utt and Tullock probably don't expect it to be. But it is, in its undemanding, almost effortless way, warm and wise and watchable enough to be just this side of wonderful.
Before You Know It shifts seamlessly from quirky to sad to mysterious to wacky to surreal within just the space of a few days, so much so that you'd never know it's director Hannah Pearl Utt's feature filmmaking debut.
