Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-intentioned but frequently inert coming-of-age saga."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"Murky, incomprehensible grade B romantic fantasy."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"This sappy fable about music's power to stir the soul to life never finds its groove."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide

"A slight, silly musical fantasy with two left feet."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Attempts unsuccessfully to liven up a tired scenario with a touch of Twilight Zone fantasy."
‑ Joshua Land, Village Voice
