Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Strong supporting actors ... give performances that serve to make their co-stars or the material look worse."
‑ Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
"The acting surprise in this odd and interesting film is Anne Heche, who suppresses her sexy, acerbic essence and completely slips into the skin of Auggie's pen pal."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Tabak's directing debut is carefully plotted, well acted and surprisingly free of cheap thrills."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Mostly succeeds, thanks to Tabak's level pacing and Goldblum's rich performance."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Begins to feel like a coffeehouse conversation about a movie that's all about meanings and motif rather than substance and characters."
‑ Elvis Mitchell, New York Times
"Has the earmarks of a sleeper: an unusual and involving premise persuasively and fully realized."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Goldblum gives a satisfying performance as a man desperate to escape his mundane, privileged life."
‑ Michele McCole Moss, Citysearch
"A much better film than I ever expected it could be, largely thanks to Goldblum's prodigious acting chops."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Only the latest feature to suck the air out of Destiny, moviedom's current bogeyman."
‑ Jessica Winter, Village Voice
"A picture that feels awfully slight."
‑ Luke Sader, Hollywood Reporter
"Auggie Rose has the makings of a TV movie though director Matthew Tabak engages noir idiom to quaint effect."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
