ReviewSource Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Review The film ends like all Bujalski's scenes end, he simply cuts away from the action and leaves us in the dark to make of it whatever we can. Since the characters are best understood when they are unsure of their own footing and their riffs always end up unclear, the brilliance of this paradoxical comic dramatization is that it doesn't have to go anywhere to arrive at where it's going. The often stale contemporary movie scene for the youth market needs films like this to pump new blood into its system, as after seeing so many recent Hollywood and indie formulaic films about these very people this seems to be the best one to get at the human condition and what the hell is going down with these disenfranchised young bloods.

ReviewSource Chicago Tribune
Review "Mutual Appreciation" is a realistic comic movie about a raffish young Boston singer-composer named Alan (Justin Rice) and his erratic (and sometimes erotic) adventures after he moves to New York and his band breaks up. And though what follows may sometimes seem like a too-obvious wish-fulfillment youth fantasy about crashing the big-city scene, writer-director-actor-editor Andrew Bujalski - who made the well-regarded "Funny Ha Ha" (2002) - has a flair for casual naturalism and dialogue to match. He and the cast make it work.
