Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A bitingly funny tale of frustrated sexuality."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"A very intriguing independent movie with stong performances."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Quirky is too mild a word for it."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"David O. Russell's gleefully subversive family saga offers a twisted coming of age tale that begins realistically before pushing its characters over rhe edge into lunacy."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Excellent art-house dark comedy with a strange, incestuous theme."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"a small, formidable film that seems to pride itself on looking at the oedipal complex in new, fresh ways"
‑ Chris Cabin, Filmcritic.com
"Plays as a bad middle-class suburban joke that hits the right note between satire and being a shocker."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"An outrageous, assured debut from a talented new director."
‑ Blake Davis, KFOR Channel 4 News
