Village Voice
A tender and hilarious vision of female adolescence.
80
A freshness and intensity that recall the television series "My So-Called Life."
75
Christian Science Monitor
Balaban's superb performance blends with Moyle's mostly understated directing to produce an uneven but sometimes enchanting comedy-drama.
60
Balaban and Nairn are radiant, with none of the mannerisms that so often make Hollywood actresses look like Stepford teens.
50
New York Post
Under the direction of Allan Moyle ("Pump up the Volume"), Nairn, McCarthy and Balaban give confident, believable performances but overacting plagues the rest of the cast.
