Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Their characters may feel lost, but Ms. Perabo and Ms. Paré rank among the finds of the year."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"Evokes the intimacies of teenage girls with unusual delicacy, and Perabo's performance is a geyser of emotion."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"During the long sit, we get symbolism lobbed into our laps like a large you-go-girlfriend beach ball."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Way too little, too late."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Well-intentioned but curiously out-of-date...far too earnest for its own good."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Barely skirting the lip of the ridiculous."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Equally earnest and unconvincing."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Pool convierte el inerte celuloide en un pedazo vivo de realidad humana. Una película que navega de lo frágil a lo tosco y de vuelta."
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"Rarely has a filmmaker captured the essence of those moments between adolescence and adulthood with the skill and sensitivity Pool does."
‑ Ted Murphy, Baseline.Hollywood.com
"Perabo is a revelation, wild and fiery."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Pool and Thompson have turned a tough-minded, solid narrative into a campy piece of kitsch that panders to teenage angst."
‑ Kevin Courrier, Globe and Mail
"Its treatment of the operatic highs and lows of young love and heartbreak feels right emotionally, even though the film tells its story rather awkwardly."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"A teen-lesbian Phenomenon without the maggots and psychotic chimp."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Shakespearean drama as penned by a love-struck pubescent girl."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"This movie goes so far in the opposite direction of most films about teenagers that it might anger some viewers with its no-holds-barred honesty."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
