Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Walking on the Sky would barely pass muster as an Off-Off-Broadway offering."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Carl T. Evans's semi-autobiographical film is a modern-day Big Chill wannabe without the subtlety, humor, memorable soundtrack, strong performances or convincing dialogue."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"...a fine first effort..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This is grounded by a leaden, cliché-ridden script that lacks the emotional truth and depth to make us care much for any of these people."

"Carl T. Evans' tedious drama Walking on the Sky serves primarily as an acting exercise for its cast and a showcase for its primary location, a scenic Manhattan rooftop."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"I haven't spent an hour and a half with worse company since high school detention."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"A less-than-high-flown affair."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International

‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"Six Lower Manhattan thirty somethings ponder the suicide of a mutual friend in Walking on the Sky, a tediously self-absorbed variation on The Big Chill and The Return of the Secaucus 7."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"If Evans' own solipsistic characters are meant to reflect where some of us are in 2005, we're in deep trouble."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
