Critic Reviews of "The Art of Getting By"Globe and MailJune 17, 2011
The vapidity of The Art of Getting By goes beyond the anthill-sized dramatic stakes. The dialogue, while occasionally epigrammatic, is tone-deaf to individual speech rhythms.Detroit NewsJune 17, 2011
The Art of Getting By wants to be sweet and insightful, but ends up scattered and slight.Newark Star-LedgerJune 17, 2011
A dull yet extremely self-important drama about rich, badly parented kids who feel sorry for themselves.Washington PostJune 17, 2011
For anyone not in a similar state of age-related solipsism - i.e., anyone outside the 16- to 25-year-old age bracket - this is more than a little annoying.New York Daily NewsJune 17, 2011
There are several lessons to be learned in "The Art of Getting By," though all arrive too late to save this well-meaning but dreadfully executed movie.Seattle TimesJune 17, 2011
Though Highmore and Roberts are appealing performers, Wiesen never gives us much reason to care about them.Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
Pathetic. Nothing but an over-privileged filmmaker mining his prep school diaries for narcissistic roleplay.We Got This CoveredMarch 02, 2013
Excellent performances by Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts make this one an enjoyable watch.Tribune News ServiceJanuary 04, 2013
Gets by. Barely.Movie MetropolisDecember 29, 2011
An easygoing film that's not as quirky as it wants to be and does just enough to make you glad you watched.7M PicturesDecember 13, 2011
This film tries to be a rallying cry for the disenfranchised youth of today. Not being a disenfranchised youth of today, it was mostly lost on me.Flick FilosopherSeptember 13, 2011
None of this first feature from writer-director Gavin Wiesen rings true, and most of it is preposterous and self-conscious.
