Consensus: Boys and Girls feels like a cheap rip-off of When Harry Met Sally. The predictable and stale story fails to engage.

Jonathan Rosenbaum
Chicago Reader

The cast is so charming and assured that it puts across most of this with a reasonable amount of conviction.

You might wish for some of the grosser excesses of Road Trip or American Pie just to stay awake.

Beth Pratt
Common Sense Media

Silly star crossed sex obsessed love flick.

Globe and Mail

This is less a movie than a casting call -- just round up a crowd of pretty young faces, fresh yet still familiar, and call it a job well done.

Boston Globe

A screenful of nonstop charm and credibility.

Michael Dequina

Prinze still delivers the faceless everyman performance he's given in his last few--make that all--his films.

Tom Keogh

If only Boys and Girls would trust its audience more by not pandering to the less intuitive among us.

Louis B. Parks
Houston Chronicle

[Boys and Girls] loses points for having the dreaded public place love pronouncement finale.

Brian Webster
Apollo Guide

While its parts are average to good, the sum of those parts is well above average. This film strikes a decent balance, despite its potential for childishness.

Generally awful movie, but 2 saviours: the dance scene and Jason Biggs are incredible. Predictably laughable to see Freddie Prinze Jr's transformation to… More

Awe come on everyone! This was cute. How can anything with Freddie in it be bad? Cute romantic comedy. Jason Biggs was pretty funny in this, which really added… More
