Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With its deliberately washed-out color palette, affectless dialogue and nearly event-free story line, Steve + Sky is a mere slip of a movie, a wan character study of people who add up to little more than a series of studied quirks."
‑ Dana Stevens, New York Times
"The sense of midnight-movie déja vu carries into the herky-jerk, non-linear screenplay and the fluorescent, life-is-a-sex-club-at-two-a.m. art design."
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"1 + 1 may equal two, but Steve + Sky doesn't add up quite as well."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"The film never decides where it wants to go."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Felix Van Groeningen's low-budget romance is also sly -- if utterly superficial -- fun."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"As aimless as its protagonists, Steve + Sky proves equally inept at irreverence and profundity."
‑ Drew Tillman, Village Voice
"A tedious movie about very unpleasant people."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"The completely random Steve + Sky competes with The Bridge of San Luis Rey for The Most Torturously Banal Cinematic Experience of 2005."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Hugely tedious and mostly incomprehensible, Quentin Tarantino-wannabe Dutch director Felix van Groeningen's Steve + Sky is the kind of foreign movie that gives subtitles a bad name."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"...empty and ultimately pointless..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Though undeniably gorgeous, there's considerably less to Van Groeningen's film than meets the eye."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
