Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You can see the emotions of the characters pass through the actors' faces and bodies. Mr. Baumgartner shines brightest, perhaps because his character is the most conflicted."
‑ Matt Weitz, Dallas Morning News
"There are countless teenagers living secret lives right now, and they don't need hurrahs. They need honesty -- and better films than this."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"undercooked in comparison to similar feature films"
‑ Don Willmott, Filmcritic.com
"A well-done version of an old tale - they manage to make it interesting and Julien Baumgartner makes it feel like his personal story."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"The story's celebration of honesty is commendable, even if the treatment of homophobia is no deeper than the hero's swimming pool."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"There's a naturalness to the entire cast, yet there is considerable depth to the portrayals, and the interplay between the characters is exceptionally rich and nuanced."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Does anybody care?"
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Even if [it] has a slightly mustry, afterschool special message to impart...the picture delivers it with sufficient charm and complexity to escape TV-movie mediocrity."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Genuinely engaging performances from Baumgartner and Maravalidealized are kind of wasted in this idealized and dramatically weightless coming(-out)-of-age story..."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"Resonates with earnest truthfulness and packs a surprising dramatic punch."
‑ Gabriel Shanks, Mixed Reviews
"This fast-paced, well-acted film brings emotional integrity to a familiar tale."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Well-meaning and hopelessly bland."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"A sensitive coming-of-age story that, while not trailblazing in terms of originality, manages to be quietly affecting."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Sensitive and uplifting."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Couldn't be more honest or compassionate in depicting the handsome sensitive teenager's coming out story."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
