A man (Chris Evans) engages in a drug-fueled conversation with a man (Jason Statham) he barely knows, as he tries to find the courage to dissuade his ex-lover (Jessica Biel) from leaving town.
" Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy spends hours in a bathroom snorting a mother lode of cocaine while annoying everyone within earshot with his tales of woe. Sounds like a great idea for a movie. Let's do it! "
" Be very afraid. "
" An aggravating twerp of an indie. "
" For those who enjoy fashion-model-looking twentysomethings yelling at each other in bathrooms while doing too much cocaine, voila! Heaven is a place called London. "
" Perhaps the best compliment that can be paid to Hunter Richards' directorial debut is that it nearly manages to make some of the most irritatingly shallow human beings on Earth seem tragic. "
" Syd's emotional tailspin is embarrassingly banal, and his assertion that 'everybody here hates me' quickly applies to the audience as well. "
" Don't you hate it when you're holed up in a bathroom with two egocentric guys snorting coke and kibitzing about the meaning of life and their failing love lives? Me, too. "
" It's not so interesting to watch people on cocaine babble back and forth at each other. "
" 'You are so annoying!' our hero screams in the heroine's face, halfway through London. 'You are 10 times more annoying than me!' our heroine quickly answers. They're both right. "
" I have seen all of these actors on better days in better movies, and I may have a novena said for them. "

" You should avoid it like a bad case of whooping cough. "
" Richards mistakes boorishness for drama, and the seemingly tendentious desire to be off-putting succeeds all too well. "
" A misfired attempt at provocation and the exploration of philosophical thought, London is little more than an immature display of male bonding on speed. "
" London has nothing to do with London. It has nothing to do with anything, except the same heavy-breathing preppy Walter Mitty fantasy that drove A Million Little Pieces. "
