Despite Greta Gerwig starring as lead role, Lola Versus is a movie that aspires to be deep but never quite gets out of the shallows.

Garbled GarbageBy 5ft7offootballheaven (300 reviews) from London , 16 Dec 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Dont do it. Dont read the stuff on the front of the DVD packaging. They lie. Or well exaggerate anyway. This is a vanity puff movie made to fill time and waste a budget. Poor.

Not the worst, but a long way from even poor...By a customer , 17 Apr 2013Slow to start, non-believable characters with an awful unbelievable plot was sure to create something this bad. The acting was OK, but with nothing else going for it, 1/2 star was being generous .......
A good sedativeBy tim1901 (1 review) , 26 Mar 2013The only thing I can say about this movie is that I fell asleep 15-20 minutes in and woke up feeling quite refreshed. Awful
Don't waste your timeBy a customer , 06 Mar 2013All I can do is agree with the other reviews-just don't bother! That's two hours of my life that I will never get back. I can't believe I sat through it but I just kept thinking that the film would get started soon...it didn't!
Greta not greatBy Declanmm (2 reviews) from London , 27 Feb 2013Thin and repetitive tale of failed romance. No real character development and focused on an endless round of coffee shops and parties. I found myself losing interest in the plot and characters half way through. One to avoid.
90's throwback in 2012 formatBy Mrs_Lamb (4 reviews) , 05 Feb 2013It was okay, not really believable at times. I chose to rent this film after seeing others from the lead actress and liking her work. It was an easy watch but my other half was ready to switch it off within 10 minutes but hung in there till the end. At times the acting all round seemed a bit forced and didn't realise that this was actually a 2012 release until I came to review it. If you think of a 90's film following the lead character's mini meltdown & subsequent journey through it, then this is Lola Versus. I'm glad I watched it but I wouldn't call it a classic.
