Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Audience enjoyment is ... likely to be dictated by tolerance of generally aimless, often witty, sometimes pretentious West Coast hipsterdom."
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"It's a sweet, slight movie that, while hardly a paragon of dramatic originality, executes a simple idea very effectively."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"An enjoyable and controversial drama with impressively naturalistic performances and a strong soundtrack, but the graphic gay sex scenes feel too overdone."
‑ Jennifer Tate, ViewLondon
"An excellent work by a talented emerging filmmaker."
‑ Thomas Caldwell, Cinema Autopsy
"[I]t's a shame then that the film doesn't do all that much with the promise of this more honest material."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Glenn Dunks
"A film named after Chic's finest dancefloor offering frankly demands more dramatic pulse and thrust."
‑ Mike McCahill, Guardian
"It's consistently intriguing, but realistically fragmented."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"It's a tad inconsequential, but Travis Mathews offers a believable slice of San Franciscan life with his graphic debut feature."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"A well-meaning ensemble drama about boho San Franciscans sorting their love lives, it never heats its faltering fictive story to the temperature of its unfaltering sex scenes."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"Graphic, gritty and uncompromising, it explores love through the act of sex - an admirable experiment."
‑ Josh Winning, Total Film
