Consensus: Though Breakfast with Scot is a well-intentioned movie with some charming performances, it suffers from sitcom humor and predictable setups.

Rene Rodriguez
Miami Herald

Breakfast with Scot isn't much on originality, but it is sweet enough to overcome the most cynical skeptic.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

Anyone who's ever seen an After School Special knows where the family-friendly Breakfast With Scot is headed, no matter how well intentioned.

Mike Scott

Although it dishes up an original premise and tries to mine laughs from a setup most studios wouldn't have touched with a 10-foot feather boa, it stumbles when it comes to generating any real laughs.

Wesley Morris
Boston Globe

It lacks the psychological realism of certain decent dramas and is too reliant on cheap pratfalls and Cavanagh's pinched approach to comedy.

It's refreshingly snarky and quick.

One of the worst concepts for a movie in the history of cinema. I can't really think of anyone who would like this pathetic comedy since the target audience would be put off by the homosexual angle. Avoid.

What elevates way above the merely adequate script by Sean Reycraft based on the novel by Michael Downing and Lynd's competent direction is young Noah Bernett as Scot. This kid is so great, he could give kid actors a good name again.

All the filmmakers are really after is a heartwarming little object lesson. ... [But] they perch their tidy little dramedy somewhere between sitcom and Movie of the Week.

Paste Magazine

The film's reliance on an otherwise clichéd plotline cuts out a lot of its fangs, giving it an ending that feels good but doesn't really deal with the issues at hand

A cute story but so many situations seemed exaggerated and distracted from the heart of this movie.
Jason Vargo
Breakfast with Scot is not refreshing, quirky, comedic or, frankly good. From the get go, Tom Cavangh's Eric is entirely unlikeable while Ben… More

This is a sweet, if rather formulaic family comedy. The genuine laughs seem a little few and far-between, but I really liked the twist on functional nuclear… More

Pretty damn good film. Review soon.

I enjoyed this movie. Eric is trying the keep his lifestyle private. After all he is a tough pro hockey player - an enforcer no less. Eric's partner,… More
