Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Avoids preachy didacticism, presenting an impressive range of credible characters undergoing eye-opening experiences."
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"I couldn't help thinking that the standard of writing and characterisation was a little bit broad, and frankly not up to the level of TV dramas such as Skins or Queer As Folk."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"There's a genuine vibrancy and the championing of sexual diversity and tolerance is heartfelt."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"Not exactly the most subtle of films, Fit does muster some touching moments as it illustrates the campaigning slogan Some People Are Gay. Get Over It."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"The film is on the money, morally and humanistically. Whether it will earn any, in the big bad popcorn world, is another question."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"An engaging and likeable teen drama, thanks to lively direction, strong characters and superb performances from its young ensemble cast."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Lively characters and realistic attitudes fill the screen, making it easy to identify with."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
