Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sincere, somewhat nuanced, relatively uncliched, and actually judicious look at both the 60s and 80s and what they mean in relation to each other."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The dialogue of the characters is half-witted, their actions are inexplicable, and to the degree that they possess personalities, they are boring, self-important clods."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The result is a movie with only a few amusing gags -- all emanating from Marin's spaced-out character -- while the rest of the film is at best bland and at worst obnoxious."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Only Louise Lasser, as the vivacious owner of the Nouveau Woodstock vegetarian restaurant, gives any hint of what might have been achieved with a little imagination."
‑ , Time Out
"A stupefyingly idiotic comedy about the way we were vs. the way we are."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Surprisingly pleasant and moving little social commentary film."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The characters are more interesting than their circumstances."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A promising premise -- 60s hippies confronting 80s yuppies -- goes badly awry in this comedy from directors Aaron Russo and Robert Greenwalt."
