Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's problems are too numerous to list, but look for the boom mic at approximately 45m."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"An amiable but highly didactic romantic drama."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"The timeliness of this subject, a lively cast and an unfamiliar setting -- Columbus, Ohio -- help offset heavy-handed melodramatics and plotting."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Unhappily, the film would embarrass a first-year film student."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"The result is earnest but not terribly original."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
