Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine84 - From the outside it looks as if Jamie & Darby have a handle on truly living in the moment; but in actuality, they are just as unsure about the next steps in life as Josh & Cornelia. These themes, along with some examination of our - film everything culture, realizations on aging and losing friends to their babies; (something which I think every single person or couple without kids has gone through when the people they used to hang with become parents) are the reasons why While We're Young is the type of movie to which I gladly gravitate.

Sober Film Critic James Brown80 - While We're Young is a mixed bag of humorous goodies revolving around life and how to live it to the best of one's ability regardless of age .

Bryan Lienesch70 - The flaw with 'While Were Young' ultimately is that it can't be two things. It can't both be an essay on the internal battle of getting older and the awkward middle ground between youthful angst and older rationality but also be a drama playing out between two documentarians. And 'While Were Young' so very much wants to do both.
Often Off Topic Allie Adkins50 - What started out as a heart warming romantic comedy sadly ended in a dull drama with a drastic shift in tone.
