Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mike Binder places his well-acted comedy in the familiar turf of other "reunion" films (Return of Secaucus Seven, Big Chill), adding one element to the genre: Instead of indoor weekend, the regrouping is set in a beloved camp of the 1972 summer"
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"A mish-mash of mediocre formulas."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"...with this group of actors (including Sam Raimi, of all people, as a clumsy handyman) it's hard to ever really get bored."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Binder serves up an unappetizing concoction of Big Chill and Ernest Goes to Camp stew."
‑ Hollis Chacona, Austin Chronicle
"If you like to go to weddings of humdrum people you don't know, you won't want to miss Indian Summer."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"This is a story more interested in tone and mood than in big plot points."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Big Chill-ish camp reunion movie with some lovely performances."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Just too pat, too predictable and too generic."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"A truly enjoyable movie, with a truly wonderful ensemble"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Indian Summer is a feel-good comedy about eight friends who are reunited with each other at a camp."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
