Sean Kelly’s review published on Letterboxd :
I don’t know how Pond Life worked as a play, however it makes for one complete mess of a film. Right off from the start, the film doesn’t get off on the right foot, as the child narrator is quite distracting and obnoxious. The point of this narrator is that Pond Life is in a roundabout way the “story of his birth,” even though it reaches this in a very contrived manner. Overall, I would say that Pond Life is a complete disappointment that does not deliver on its promise of being a biting suburban satire.
