"[I]t feature witty dialogue and good performances...Church has some of the film's funniest lines, along with Ellen Page..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/11/2008
"The film is the kind of observational comedy that should be enjoyed while there's still a chance....Poirier's feel for character, ear for dialogue and eye for detail are superb."
New York Times - 04/11/2008
"[T]he great virtue of SMART PEOPLE, attributable to Noam Murro's easygoing direction as well as to Mr. Poirier's wandering screenplay, lies in its general preference for small insights over grand revelations."
Entertainment Weekly - 04/18/2008
"[A] small, sharp, and pleasingly literate comedy....Poirier's script is full of nicely offhand slap-down banter..." -- Grade: B
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2008
"[K]nowing, pleasingly literate and modishly melancholy comedy-drama....As smart as its title suggests."
Uncut - 06/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "The real stars are JUNO's Ellen Page...and SIDEWAYS' Thomas Haden Church....They give SMART PEOPLE an edge..."
