“A playful buddy comedy with notes of Neil Simon – and a little 50 Shades of Grey.” – The Film Stage
“Moviegoers may expect something sexier than what they get here, but Neil LaBute's focus on just-talk between Broderick and co-star Alice Eve, funny but never uproarious, provides its own modest rewards.” – Hollywood Reporter
“Mr. LaBute is not a moralizer as much as a lamenter-his people usually bring unhappiness upon themselves. In the gently joyous "Dirty Weekend,” though, they are capable of finding a flight path to contentment." – Wall Street Journal
