Reviews for Violet Tendencies have been rolling in (the DVD came out this past Tuesday) and the critics have agreed on one thing: Mindy Cohn rocks as the lead.
The “Facts of Life” star takes a decidedly more risqué turn as Violet, a lovably raunchy middle-aged woman who struggles to distance herself from her adoring gay friends in order to nab a boyfriend. Below is a sampling of what critics are saying about Mindy’s performance. Let’s hope she takes a cue and shows more of her “adult” side on the big screen in the near future.
- “Cohn is vibrant and funny and sensitive as the searching Violet and, admittedly much to my surprise, she's perfectly cast.” — The Independent Critic
- “[Violet Tendencies] moves smartly and delivers outrageous one-liners with rapid-fire efficiency, particularly in the hands of ‘Facts of Life’ veteran Mindy Cohn, who tosses off vulgarisms with seasoned aplomb.” — Variety
- “Mindy Cohn — you might remember her as Natalie from “The Facts of Life” — is likable as Violet, the profane yet rueful center of gravity among a group of younger gay men who are not inclined to share her.” — The New York Times
- "Mindy Cohn is amazing here. You are in love with her from the single second she appears on screen. She is totally adorable, totally loveable, totally fabulous, and totally hilarious!” — The M Reporter
- “[Cohn is] a gifted comedienne and actress and lights up the screen with every scene.” — Entertainment Focus
- “this is The Cohn Show and here the girl does not disappoint” — Gay Celluloid
- “Cohn is great in her role” — Oasis Magazine
- “Cohn's performance and those of the supporting cast are great.” — Movie Dearest
- “funny and engaging thanks to Mindy Cohn’s delightfully charismatic performance and terrific comic timing as Violet” — NYC Movie Guru
