Consensus: A clumsy and scattered comedy with a poorly executed script.

Ray Conlogue
Globe and Mail

There's no sign of the writerly derring-do that is really essential to daisy-chain storytelling.

This movie isn't merely disrespectful; it's contemptuous.

New York Magazine/Vulture

Everybody vamps and preens as if it were amateur night in SoHo, and a few of the performers, such as Kate Hudson, appear ill-used.

New Years Eve, 1981. Disco was on its way out, and the "New Wave" was pounding on the shore, bringing in a fresh tide of angst for a new decade . . . good for a laugh

Cincinnati Enquirer

In the hands of director Risa Bramon Garcia and writer Shana Larsen, their predicament is funny, sad and wistful as only young lust can be.
