Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Another Los Angeles-set multistrand drama "Crash"-es and burns."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Variety
"A serendipitous erotic thriller reminiscent of Crash in the way that lots of Angelenos' lives intersect serendipitously, except that here the characters have a seedy strip club in common instead of car accidents."
‑ Kam Williams, Sly Fox
"Few will remember Powder Blue as a desperate copy job of Paul Thomas Anderson's brilliant Magnolia but rather as the film where Jessica Biel finally took it all off."
‑ Erik Childress, eFilmCritic.com
"A movie full of egregiously overdramatic stupidities."
‑ Vadim Rizov, Village Voice
"They seem to be real and they are certainly spectacular--too bad that one can't say the same for the film featuring them."
‑ Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com
"It's not likely [Biel] is comfortable with her nude scenes (which are neither lengthy nor discreet) being used as a selling point, but Bui fails to provide much else worth discussing."
‑ Geoff Berkshire, Metromix.com
"Patrick Swayze's final feature film role as Wild Velvet strip club boss Velvet Larry is a flamboyant extravaganza"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"an embarrassing display of directorial exploitation and a waste of acting goodwill."
‑ Jason McKiernan, Filmcritic.com
