Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Moss brings warmth and dignity to a part that could've easily slid into stereotype, while Camryn Manheim owns her few scenes as Amanda's best friend."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"A flat-footed sitcom with unconvincing situations and comedy."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"It's bloodless material, sluggishly captured by Barra, who's trapped in directorial survival mode, terrified to color outside of the lines."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"The direction rarely rises above acceptable, but anytime the camera's pointed at Grant, it doesn't matter."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
" utterly misbegotten piece of work..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There's a perfectly likable, sitcomish romantic comedy buried somewhere deep inside Barra Grant's indie Love Hurts, but it would have taken some very significant rewrites to unearth it."
‑ Andrew Barker, Variety
"This is not muddy storytelling, just bipolar and unconvincing, as Grant force-feeds us comedy to soften us up for the emotional kill."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
