Hartley's soft spot for offbeat romances is trumped by irony and sloganeering dialogue.
70
Chicago Reader
Flaky, funny, and sexy.
63
New York Post
Not one of Hartley's most successful efforts, but it's witty, daring, different and a welcome alternative to Hollywood pap.
60
The A.V. Club
There's ample opportunity here for a sharp consumerist satire, like a dryer cousin to the candy-colored pop-culture send-up “Josie And The Pussycats,” but Hartley misses his own joke.
50
Variety
Unconvincingly attempts to update the futurist dystopian traditions of Orwell, Huxley and William Gibson.
50
Portland Oregonian
As satire, it doesn't add up -- but it's an admirable, if dull, experiment.
50
Hartley's score is lovely and he makes excellent use of digital video, but the film's paucity of provocative ideas is its undoing.
30
The New York Times
Evokes a mood of tenderness. Beyond that, it is a weightless, sentimental and intellectually lazy effort from an independent filmmaker whose movies seem increasingly insubstantial.
20
Film Threat
A profoundly unnecessary movie, The Girl From Monday is an embarrassment.
20
Village Voice
A monotonous, unenlightening experience.
