Like the poster, Meet Monica Velour is engaging to a point, but leaves much to be desired.
63
Writer-director Keith Bearden was also smart enough to round up a couple of other old pros: Brian Dennehy, as the hero's eccentric grandfather, and Keith David, as a wise collector of pop-culture artifacts.
60
The effectively deglamorized Cattrall is terrific, investing her portrayal with a complex mixture of vulnerability, toughness and still-powerful sexuality.
60
Beautifully acted, it's a tender love story with one or two belly laughs.
60
Both emotionally charged and at times extremely funny, with humor emerging naturally from the characters' predicaments, Meet Monica Velour has the feel-good factor without comprising its ideals.
50
It's definitely worth seeing for Ms. Cattrall. This gal can really act.
50
A road trip into the heart of that bumpiest of territories, the adolescent id.
50
The role of a former star of the "golden age" of porn sounds perfect for Kim Cattrall, and she handles it nicely - at least, in the rare moments when this indie comedy isn't terminally contrived.
50
Poor Cattrall is caught in a script that, much like the white teddy, is an impossibly tight squeeze, obliging her to hit the farcical laughs while still playing the cellulite realism.
40
The deepest chord is hit by Cattrall, who almost manages to wipe away the memory of "Sex and the City 2."
20
The film succeeds only in turning one's stomach via implausibilities, inanities and the unwelcome sight of Brian Dennehy's naked ass.
