Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This realist fairy tale of impossible love has a fair amount of nuance and charm."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"It's sad that Moore's first major cinematic outing scrapes the bottom of the melodramatic barrel."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"Adopts a breezy anti-cynicism as a pose, and then spends the rest of the time failing in the most spectacular way to competently execute it."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A shameless, compassionate tearjerker about hope, inspiration and courage."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"A monstrosity of a movie that I am all too eager to forget."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"It's an overwrought teen weepy, Terms of Endearment for the TRL crowd."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"So boring that even its target audience talked all the way through it."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Too-syrupy re-tread of Love Story."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"For anyone under 13, free from cynicism and with a need to believe that 17 year-old boys aren't just after one thing, maybe this film rocks."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"Those raised on idealized romances (the Ken and Barbie kind) where love conquers all will no doubt love this sappy tale."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"An adolescent romance we've seen a million times before."
‑ , Time Out
"A fifty car pileup of cliches."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
"This is a great romantic tearjerker."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Succeeds modestly as a teen movie. Expect anything else from it and you'll be disappointed."
‑ John Venable, Supercala.com
"[A] wretched teen dramedy."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
