Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This unrated film is best suited for television exposure to young teenage girls, who might actually fall under the spell of its particular brand of hokum."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Even a Sixth Sense-style twist at the end isn't enough to redeem Now & Forever."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"This poorly executed film is riddled with every cliché in the book and then some."
‑ Angel Cohn, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Has some of the schmaltz but little of the appeal of Arthur Hiller's 'Love Story'."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"At least the title's accurate: This is a viewing experience that feels like it will never end."
‑ Matt Singer, Village Voice
"Perhaps it was the film's irrevocable destiny to eventually find its way to the big screen, where, like its heroine, it can live out its last days in peace."
‑ Dana Stevens, New York Times
"A small jewel of a film about American Indian spirituality"
‑ Louis Proyect,
"Heaven help us avoid saccharine sentiments, especially if they're wrapped in a candy-colored package like Now & Forever."
‑ Susan Green, Boxoffice Magazine
"A story told with all the subtlety of an old country song."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Clark's direction is professional enough, as are the lead performances, but the movie is doomed from the get-go by Bill Boyle's mawkish, cliché-ridden screenplay."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"Shows genuine compassion and understanding of faith and culture clash."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
