‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"It floats effortlessly over its landscape, seeing all from a marvelously cockeyed perspective all its own."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A funny and touching teen romance from Scottish director Bill Forsyth."

‑ Janet Branagan, Apollo Guide
"Quirky and utterly endearing."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"It's hard to warm to a film as intentionally slight and safe as this."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"As charming a provincial romance as ever there was."
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, ▄berCinÚ
"A revealing and credible portrait of adolescence that captures all the confusion, yearning, and terrors of adolescents trying to cope with their ambivalent desires."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Maybe only grown-ups should see this movie. You know, people who have gotten over the pains of unrequited love (hollow laugh)."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A charming but slight teen movie about sports, a first romance and growing up."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The film has fresh, no-nonsense performances and a script so rooted in truth that it seems to have materialized not been written."
