Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Filmmaker Gay nimbly navigates the raging waters of burgeoning sexuality."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Manages to be both joyful and unnerving in its unflinching portrayal of emerging sexuality."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"Rare handling of an emotional and important theme."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"You can only like these guys, and sympathize with their stumbling into adult life."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
""Nico and Dani" is refreshing after the lowbrow sniggering found in American teen sex comedies."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"For a movie that has been praised for its sensitive realism, Nico and Dani takes some large liberties."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Although films about adolescents stumbling urgently toward sexual self-identity are plentiful, most are put to shame by the delicacy, poignancy, and honesty of Nico and Dani."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"...sexual scenes are all composed tastefully, and larger themes of sexuality and how it affects friendship override individual scenes"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"It makes up for much of its shortcomings with its sensitive consideration of sexuality, adoration, friendship, and late adolescence."
‑ Rob Maitra, PopMatters
"I wish there were more such honestly rendered and thoughtfully told coming-of-age films."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Could be useful to a confused teenager, suggesting that we all have to choose our own paths in life."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The film seems unfocused at times, but on reflection, stands out as an unusually sensitive and honest view of teen sexuality, straight or gay."
‑ Louis B. Parks, Houston Chronicle
"A highly enjoyable, extremely sensual coming of age film"
‑ Brandon Judell, PopcornQ
"Merely a slice of life, but it's a well-observed, wonderfully-acted slice of life."
‑ Edward Johnson-Ott, NUVO Newsweekly
"The rare coming-of-age film that avoids cliches, refuses to engage in stereotypes, and wins over both your intellect and your heart."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
