Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite its shortcomings, Summerhood is an earnest effort from a first-time director who clearly enjoys stoking and poking at his campfire memories."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Let the record show that it's better than Hot Tub Time Machine, though that's not much of a compliment."
‑ Adam Nayman, eye WEEKLY

‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"The movie has none of the awkwardness or clunky moments you might expect from a low-budget first feature."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
