Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The actors are forced to grapple with hazy motivations that never come into focus."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"Faultlessly professional but finally slight."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"Though it pretends to expose the life of male hustlers, it's exploitive without being insightful."

‑ Megan Turner, New York Post
"An encouraging effort from McCrudden"
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
