Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A highlight of the 1999 Sundance Film Fest, Jim Fall's charming romantic comedy deviates from mnny gay-themed by not dealing with AIDS or other "serious" issues, instead centering on "simple" matters like dating and getting laid."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Sexual orientation is moot in first-time feature director Jim Fall's breezy, single-day-spanning romantic comedy."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"But what makes Trick different is that it tells a story that heterosexuals can also relate to."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Apollo Guide
"Thoroughly entertains in the context of this genre, but it also stands as being the most uplifting and romantic love story of the year."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Jason Schafer's writing and Jim Fall's direction invest this with a loopy humor and skewed sensitivity that bring an essential freshness to all the blue-balled agony."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
