Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What a mess."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Overembellished to distraction."
‑ Tom Sime, Dallas Morning News
"The cast is appealing but often looks lost, stranded between all of the conflicting directions."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A lousy movie that's not merely unwatchable, but also unlistenable."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"Occasionally amateurishly made but a winsome cast and nice dialogue keeps it going."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"Winds up feeling like lots of other quirky movies that try to score hipness points with young adults."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"For the most part Stevens glides through on some solid performances and witty dialogue."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"Most of the actors struggle with the clunky dialogue and often look almost as uncomfortable delivering it as you'll feel sitting there watching them do so."
‑ Rachel Sanders, Apollo Guide
"Breen's script has deadpan wit, though it becomes a little labored as it goes along."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"The rather unlikable, unsympathetic characters make what is less than 90 minutes seem much, much longer."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"We have poignancy jostling against farce, thoughtful dialogue elbowed aside by one-liners, and a visual style that incorporates rotoscope animation for no apparent reason except, maybe, that it looks neat."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Just a Kiss wants desperately to come off as a fanciful film about the typical problems of average people. But it is set in a world that is very, very far from the one most of us inhabit."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"A near-laughless comedy."
‑ Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News
"Can't get enough of libidinous young city dwellers? Try this obscenely bad dark comedy, so crass that it makes Edward Burns' Sidewalks of New York look like Oscar Wilde."
‑ Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly
"An imponderably stilted and self-consciously arty movie."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
