The critics agree: there’s nothing funny about Frances Ha.
The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Steven Rea couldn’t follow the story. ”It’s kind of hard to explain,” he says.
Moira Macdonald of The Seattle Times agrees. ”Things don’t entirely make sense,” she adds.
Kimberley Jones of The Austin Chronicle says the film’s use of 3D made her feel “ill.”
Las Vegas Weekly‘s Josh Bell thinks Noah Baumbach “struggles” to tell a story as he “careens” from one nonsensical scene to the next.
Josh Larsen of Larsen on Film put it even better, calling Frances Ha “a hallmark” of “aimlessness.”
Frances Ha? More like Frances Ugh, it seems.
