  1. Diderot's rating of the film Brad's Status

    Too cliché in almost every aspect, even in the ways it tries not to be.

  2. Oluseyi's rating of the film Brad's Status

  3. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Brad's Status

    mike white made an alexander payne film. i'll take it.

  4. wi.bi's rating of the film Brad's Status

    plus a half star. this is the type of film where the character emotion is messed up but in individual way. Like so... private. maybe there's even one who notice that or maybe the caracter it self didn't realize it and become selfish. and Mike White choose to had a narrator for the film and that was the risky thing for dramedy like this. but the results is very good.

  5. janh24's rating of the film Brad's Status

    But really a 3.5, innit.

  6. Bob's rating of the film Brad's Status

    Existential comedy that relies heavily on inner monologue, which brings humor out of otherwise dark places. It's not quite "Adaptation" level of quality but it's recommendable little flick for moody afternoons that presents the problems of self-worthiness and accomplishment as a state of mind of the individual and not society as a whole.

  7. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Brad's Status

    Greenberg got older and bitter. A man with an inferiority complex as big as his ego, Brad is a delusional, insecure, entitled, egotist, self-centered male in his late Forties. Luckily, this parable delivers no uplifting, positive message. As in real life, there are no real epiphanies, no changes of heart, no deep transformations. Ben Stiller is the epitome of White American bourgeois malcontent in the Facebook era.

  8. Mirela Dudaş's rating of the film Brad's Status

  9. ABVH's rating of the film Brad's Status

    Middle class, mid life crises man feels better when finds out his friends have problems as well.

  10. cineholic's rating of the film Brad's Status

    6/10. Some good life advice and a very nice score, but BRAD'S STATUS ultimately suffers from too much navel gazing from the perspective of the Ben Stiller character.

  11. Renton47's rating of the film Brad's Status

    Nothing objectionable here, but is Brad really the most worthy of our critical appraisal right now? It's such a precise indictment of this obliviousness, this entitlement, that you'll see its premise and agree early on. As such, it would have been nice to see more bite, or a subject whose revelations won't seem so contrived to the rest of us. 2.5

  12. Matt Richards's rating of the film Brad's Status

    Aside from wearing too much make-up Ben Stiller really puts his emotions bravely on the line here in this very topical look at ageing, jealousy, entitlement, self-worth and fulfilment. Supporting cast are all great, particularly Austin Abrams the son who provide the perfect teenage mumble and grounded balance for Dad. Never judge a book by it's status update. 3.5 stars

  13. Artemis's rating of the film Brad's Status

    Bittersweet and refreshingly neurotic, this one hits all the right notes without being superficial or condescending.

  14. smokescreen's rating of the film Brad's Status

  15. bryanvmh's rating of the film Brad's Status

    God, just shut up mid-life crisis Ben Stiller

  16. paul_quixote's rating of the film Brad's Status

    A deeply uncomfortable investigation of male delusion. Very good. My critique: it doesn't quite add up that the wife and son would have so much love for such a narcissistic neurotic. The wife character was ridiculously underdeveloped and probably shouldn't have been a character in the main narrative. It would've worked well if she was just a voice in the opening scene and then only featured in the flashbacky moments.
