Slashfilm - Unnamed
Shephard's steady direction and clever script allow things to hit exactly the right note. Deutch, O'Brien, and Isaac are all terrific, and "Not Okay" is one of the most pleasant surprises of 2022.

IndieWire - Kate Erbland
Being perpetually online sucks, but movies about it don’t have to, as Not Okay shows time and again.

We Got This Covered - Scott Campbell
Writer and director Quinn Shephard's Not Okay takes thing near to the knuckle, but the biting jet-black comedy never loses sight of its intentions, deftly balancing humor and bile with heart and hard-hitting themes.

Paste Magazine - Lex Briscuso
The movie is an incessant interrogation of what our young people are becoming, what they want and what the rules are to get it, yet its humor and humility make it stand out as one of the better recent satires.

Variety - Amy Nicholson
Shephard jabs well-placed elbows at modern day media celebrity, where the public’s attention veers in an instant from tutting about death to applauding as Danni does goat yoga.
