Sitcom humor substitutes for wit, and tedious angst supplies the drama.

Jay Carr
Boston Globe

Sweet but often tedious.

Blake French

This isn't another one of those annoying gay rights movies -- it just wants to have fun.

Terry Lawson
Detroit Free Press

It is not a surprise to learn that Bucatinsky is developing a sitcom based on this film, because it plays like an overly long pilot.

Eric Harrison
Houston Chronicle

Probably plays better on the stage. On film, the dialogue sometimes seems too writerly, too cute.

Clint Morris

Better than "The Opposite of Sex", all-round good fun!

Jane Sumner
Dallas Morning News

It may not be totally fresh and original, but All Over the Guy is nearly void of gay stereotypes.

Desmond Ryan
Philadelphia Inquirer

A nicely turned and witty screenplay from Bucatinsky.

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

A funny and warm little film that really deserved more attention than it got.

I really liked this movie. Its characters are quirky but believably so, which is rare. Really funny.

This is one of my absolute favorite movies! Love the track "Please Forgive Me" by David Gray.
