There's heavy influence from the "Brave New World" brand of dystopian fantasy, but engaging performances and a stylized visual approach lend it originality.
75
Hartley's soft spot for offbeat romances is trumped by irony and sloganeering dialogue.

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.

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
Numbing story.

Hartley's score is lovely and he makes excellent use of digital video, but the film's paucity of provocative ideas is its undoing.

Portland Oregonian
As satire, it doesn't add up -- but it's an admirable, if dull, experiment.
38
New York Daily News
Hartley's satire of consumer-driven sexuality is undermined by the straight-faced decision to cast affectless model Tatiana Abracos as the heroine.
20
A profoundly unnecessary movie, The Girl From Monday is an embarrassment.
