‑ Boo Allen, Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
"A wonderful, refreshingly simple romantic comedy set amongst a cozy Manhattan backdrop,"
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid

‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A well directed and sensitive portrayal of match-making in the 20th century"
‑ Niki Patton, Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
