  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: a tale of arrested development that strains credulity to an overly literal soundtrack.

    • Excerpt: Poolside Growing Pains: Kristen Bell hits honest notes in familiar but frank, moving “Lifeguard”
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
  • Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live
    • Excerpt: The Lifeguard is like the bummer sibling to last year’s acclaimed “Hello I Must Be Going.” Bell gives a strong performance, eschewing her own perky persona to navigate the melancholia, but the conclusion of writer/director Liz W. Garcia’s script fails to go as deep as the heavy lead-in requires.
  • [New – 9/5] | Cole Smithey @ ColeSmithey.com
    • Excerpt: Five years of unprecedented economic collapse has led many Americans to travel a path similar to Kristen Bell’s 30-year-old character in Liz W. Garcia’s spotty debut feature.
