REVIEWS of TWO'S A CROWD:

★★★★★
“Funny and lovable ...
Allen and Collette seemingly walked out of a Woody Allen film onto the screen....
One of the most enjoyable films I've seen at [Hot Docs].”
artdepartMENTAL

“One of my all time favourite short films.”
Hilarious look at non-traditional, monogamous love.
— Donna G, THE MORE THE MERRIER ARTS RADIO (second review here)

“I highly recommend it. ...
An enlightening take on contemporary attitudes of marriage.”
cinemablographer

“A must see ... Hilarious, and surprisingly touching.”
Southampton Patch

Terrifically fun.”
Downtown Express (NYC)

“Collette and Allen could provide enough fodder for a feature-length
documentary, but we'll have to settle for 20 minutes with them.”
— Stephanie Merry, The Washington Post

One of “ten films to see at DC Shorts festival ... that may stay with you
long after their short run times. ... This film could double as a premise
from the current season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'”
WTOP 103.5 FM (Washington, D.C.)

Cute and funny documentary. . . .
An excruciating — or, depending on your perspective,
excruciatingly entertaining — peek at living in Manhattan.”
— Christopher Lloyd, THE FILM YAP

“A heartwarming, quirky docu-comedy.”
— Fraser Mills, FILM ARMY

“A love story that could only take place in NYC.”
— Christopher Campbell, Doc Channel Blog

“With TWO'S A CROWD, we all can learn a thing or two about relationships.”
— Christopher Misch, NEXT PROJECTION

“Allen and Collette are the epitome of the adage 'for every shoe there is a mate.'
It is hard to believe that they are real people but the fact that they are so
strange only proves their authenticity.”
— Carmen Albano, TORONTO FILM SCENE
