Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The director and her capable cast appear to be caught in a heady whirl of New Age-inspired good intentions, but the spell they cast isn't the least bit mesmerizing."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"This story of unrequited love doesn't sustain interest beyond the first half-hour."
‑ Rob Sharp, Village Voice
"Hardman is a grating, mannered onscreen presence, which is especially unfortunate in light of the fine work done by most of the rest of her cast."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The whole thing comes off like a particularly amateurish episode of Bewitched that takes place during Spring Break."
‑ Megan Turner, New York Post
"Nothing here amuses or delights or rings true."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"Like a soft drink that's been sitting open too long: it's too much syrup and not enough fizz."
‑ Elvis Mitchell, New York Times
"From the choppy editing to the annoying score to 'special effects' by way of replacing objects in a character's hands below the camera line, "Besotted" is misbegotten"
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
