Unicorn Store has so much going for it -a great cast, solid premise, an exciting director - but the magic falls flat. That's no fault of Brie Larson, whose endearing performance and uneven yet promising direction keep the movie afloat.

UNICORN STORE has a stable of ideas that scatter like glitter. It can occasionally be a delightful and charming story of self-discovery, but all too often it'll lose the reins and buck wild.

Unicorn Store does get points for being unique, but this slow, twee fantasy doesn't have enough interesting ideas to offset its many dull moments.

April 4, 2019
a whimsical comedy that jumps between the awkward humor of The Office and the outrageousness of Office Space with rainbow sprinkles and a touch of Wonka magic thrown in.

Unicorn Store is so preoccupied with being different that it lets its greatest elements slip away from the film. [Full Review in Spanish]

July 25, 2019
You can practically see the gears of Larson's earnest intentions straining to churn out an earned resolution for her heroine, but it's tainted by the botched coming-of-age lesson we all have to endure to get there.
July 2, 2018
A comedy drama that treads the line between kooky and irritatingly silly and winds up on the wrong side.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 11, 2019
...the set-up gets a little too whimsical and abstract for its own good.

April 5, 2019
Unicorn Store, with as much charm and glitter as it tries to dispense, is the cinematic equivalent of an empty Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper.

Brie Larson's directing debut includes a promising premise that unfortunately deflates along the way. [Full review in Spanish]

April 8, 2019
The film's major strength is that Larson's sardonic humor translates well onscreen, but the film is too conventional to be genuinely memorable. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 5, 2019
It's more often than not something of a slog, its insights shrug-worthy and its tone jarring in its shifts from candy-coloured whimsy to weepy dramatics.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 13, 2017
Brie Larson's directorial debut falls short on a modest goal rather than taking a big, ambitious swing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 17, 2017
A quirky little movie that takes its whimsical, embrace-your-inner-kid metaphor much too seriously.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
April 4, 2019
Unicorn Store only ends up infantilizing millennials and, when it comes to Jackson's ethereal character, playing into offensive tropes.
April 8, 2019
The movie practically begs you to indulge your inner child. But the adult in me prevailed, and I spent too much of the running time desperate to scream at the screen: Grow up already.
April 3, 2019
Unicorn Store is so myopically intent on creating a whimsical bubble for its protagonist to live in that it ends up trapping itself inside.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
April 5, 2019
The best thing I can say about Unicorn Store is its only 92-minutes long.
April 5, 2019
Quirky to an extreme with not much to say about the millennial resistance to maturity.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Brie Larson's directorial debut is nothing so much as a series of quirks.
