Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hey, hey, we get it already."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Comic potential is frittered away by lazy plotting that requires Esther to jump through only the most perfunctory of hoops while hiding the secret from her family."
‑ Richard Kuipers, Variety
"The film starts slowly, but gets an energy burst when Keisha Castle-Hughes' enigmatic spiky-haired Sunni with a single earring and provocative gaze appears onscreen."

"The sometimes strained efforts at quirky humour and the more melodramatic moments in the later scenes can feel like they belong in different movies altogether."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"Appearances by Toni Collette and Whale Rider's Keisha Castle-Hughes should draw a few curious parents to what is, most of the time, a quirky and quite enjoyable coming of age saga."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
"The filmmaker's overreliance on oddball characterizations and easy-bake kookiness often derails her seemingly loftier intentions."
‑ Mark Olsen, L.A. Weekly
"If you're sick of Hollywood teen movies that can't see past the end of their next tube of lip gloss, this Aussie alternative is well worth checking out."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, iofilm.co.uk
