The Verge isn't quite as enthused as other reviewers of Anomalisa. The headline is "Do we need another Charlie Kaufman film about a sad man and the woman who reminds him to smile?" and the answer leans toward Betteridge's Law.
Anomalisa is a remix of Charlie Kaufman's previous films, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: the never ending hallways, and mysterious middle management office spaces; a male lead who has it all, but is crippled by a fear that happiness is impermanent; and a just-quirky-enough woman who exists to remind this man how it feels to really be alive. We've seen parts of Anomalisa in Kaufman's earlier films, and often to greater effect. (Source)
Can't please everyone.
