Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"They are an appealing, vulnerable group, and the film is a showcase for its gifted young actors."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"America's appetite for these yuppie-filled tales has worn down, but not soon enough to stop this collection of self-absorbed twentysomethings."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Yet another ensemble comedy about struggling but attractive young writers/actresses/film geeks/musicians ... zzzz."
‑ Merle Bertrand, Film Threat
"Despite the earnest predictability of all that occurs, the movie remains watchable thanks to the genuine comradeship one senses among the players, whose can-do spirit carries the movie along to its rather innocuous finale."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Despite the fact that it never seems particularly fresh, Way Off Broadway is consistently funny."
‑ Phoebe Flowers, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"An interesting look at failure, redemption and peer support."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"Looks and sounds very much like a sitcom."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"This movie wants you to like it, and it's easy to like. There's a warm fuzzy wrapped up in the too-quickly-and-easily-resolved ending, and in the end I was charmed enough to let the film win me over."
