Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Toplined by handsome Brit thesp Rupert Graves, offbeat serio comedy concerns the evolving friendhsip and eventual love between a rambunctious macho and a quiet insecure transsexual."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"The subtlety with which Mackintosh conveys her complicated mixture of vulnerability, defensiveness and pride makes [Kim] one of the most fully realized characters to be portrayed on the screen in a long time."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Charming, offbeat serio comedy about the relationship between a macho and a transsexual"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Bland and conventional, despite the sex-change angle, Different for Girls is ultimately not different enough."
‑ Shlomo Schwartzberg, Boxoffice Magazine
"Not funny. Not interesting."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"The story has a TV movie shorthand calculation and slightness."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"This irrepressible and sensitive romance brings new flavor to the term odd couple."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Different for Girls staggers around, keeping its lovers apart as in any conventional romantic comedy."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The film engages the audience on a gut level so that we care about Kim and Prentice."
‑ Leslie Rigoulot, Film Scouts
"I don't mean to be a stick-in-the-mud, but apart from school days and friendly shared memories, these two truly have nothing in common."
‑ Barbara Shulgasser, San Francisco Examiner
"One of the reasons why Different for Girls works is because of the caliber of acting."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"As Kim, Mackintosh's performance finds and holds the right notes, of shyness, determination, privacy and love."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"What makes this wonderfully deranged film fly is Rupert ("Maurice"; "Where Angels Fear to Tread") Graves."
‑ Brandon Judell, Critics Inc./America Online
"It's rather ordinary stuff."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"Richard Spence's film doesn't have the courage to examine forcefully the issues at its center."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
