Critic Reviews of "Hit by Lightning"Los Angeles TimesOctober 30, 2014
An offbeat rom-com that ventures down the film-noir path, "Hit by Lightning" manages to make dark comedy fresh by combining two formulas.New York TimesOctober 30, 2014
"Hit by Lightning" often resembles a laugh-deprived "Seinfeld" episode.New York PostOctober 30, 2014
From its uninspired, sitcom-y look to its phoned-in dialogue ("I love you plus infinity"; "I love you plus double infinity") to its creaky plot, "Hit by Lightning" is anything but electrifying.New York Daily NewsOctober 29, 2014
Cryer makes a likable sad-sack and Will Sasso provides balance as his narcissistic best friend. But both guys deserve better. As do we.Village VoiceOctober 28, 2014
It's a black-comedy plot without any blackness or actual comedy, unless mugging and bro-heiming by Mad TV's Will Sasso counts as hilarious.Blu-ray.comNovember 07, 2014
Never gets past mildly amusing, finding Blitt unwilling to spin the effort dizzy with madcap encounters and pitch-black comedy.The DissolveNovember 03, 2014
Hit By Lightning might have worked as black comedy, but Blitt clearly lacks any instinct for genuine darkness.Film Journal InternationalOctober 30, 2014
[A] turgid, static, ineptly made first directorial feature from Blitt.Tribune News ServiceOctober 27, 2014
Jon Cryer plays another lovesick loser, only this one can swear and gets mixed up in a lame "murder my husband for me" comic thriller
