Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 08/09/1990
"...[A] wildly hilarious black comedy....[Hartley] combines a rigorous social conscience with the exuberance of fresh comic thinking..."
New York Times - 07/20/1990
"...Arch....All the offbeat appeal of its strange characters..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/17/1990
"...It's fresh and actually gets somewhere....Hartley reveals a serious concern for how people tend to look at relationship as if they were business deals and how alienating the results are..."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2004
"Hartley's determination to skew convention at every turn remains diverting."
A.V. Club - 11/03/2010
"THE UNBELIEVABLE TRUTH was still like nothing else at the time, an offbeat relationship study with dialogue pitched somewhere between Jim Jarmusch deadpan and the rhythms of a Samuel Beckett play."
