Critic Reviews for Hard Sell

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Eventually ... the movie finds its own voice and groove, and avoids being a mere retro exercise.

Hard Sell isn't very attentive to its own subject matter and treats its female character as expendable

August 14, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

... it's one of the most gently subversive films on the topic I've seen in some time, but Hard Sell treats these ideas as window-dressing for Hardy's coming-of-age story.

May 29, 2016 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

... strains to be edgy while failing to reconcile its broad comedy with the earnest drama.

Think Hard Sell is another naughty coming of age yarn? Get ready for a pleasant surprise.

May 20, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A weird mashup of cliches that don't go together and appear to have been assembled by someone with no understanding of actual human behavior or motivation.
