Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Preeiding the glitzy Big Chill by three years, John Sayles' first feature offers a poignant look at the reunion of 1960s activists; there's not much to look at this talking heads feature, which was shot for $40,000, but the dialogue is good."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"The sort of small-scale, sharply observed character drama Sayles' admirers know and love."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"a peculiarly literate lack of focus indicative of a brilliant novelist moonlighting, at this point, as a filmmaker."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Granola theater on the cusp of the New Right"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Return of the Secaucus Seven delivers a rueful portrait of a handful of members of the baby boom generation."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The much praised film upon its release, a tribute to indie filmmaking, seems to have badly dated."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Fresh, smart, endearing."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
