Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cusack and Skye's relationship develops nicely and believably, but Crowe has not written an entirely convincing character for the latter to play."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"The film is all charming performances and grace notes, but there are plenty of worse things to be."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"Cameron Crowe creates a beautiful film filled with uncertainties and paints romance as horrifying, but an experience that's also very much worth it."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Say Anything was a singularly three-dimensional teen romance after a decade of broad gags and breakfast-club stereotypes in John Hughesland."
‑ Bill Weber, Slant Magazine
"John Cusack has unwittingly become Generation X's romantic screen icon."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"At last, a teenage love story with real characters instead of cliches, poses, and attitudes."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The cast is irresistibly charming, down to the bit parts by Lili Taylor and Amy Brooks as Lloyd's best friends."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"This is an iconic role for John Cusack and easily one of the movies that made him such a respectable actor today."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"One of the very best teen movies."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"Great dialogue, dead-on performances from all three leads, Cusack, Skye and Mahoney, a nice romance, cool soundtrack and some funny lines."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"he love story is as old-fashioned as the jokes are old hat, but Crowe's amusing script and unforced direction allow the actors to develop reasonably authentic characters from stereotypical roles."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Smart, well-developed characters, believable situations, and a solid emotional investment for us in the film's people and circumstances"
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A gem of a coming-of-age story."
‑ Randy White, Common Sense Media
"Rewarding if slightly off-beat, and genuinely funny."
‑ Mark Salisbury, Empire Magazine
"Even as a cynical, anti-romantic teen, I loved this movie."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
