Los Angeles Times
Berlanti brings a smart, witty, mainstream style to his well-crafted picture, which surely enhances its crossover appeal.
75
New York Daily News
It's the first mainstream gay movie that feels totally comfortable in its shoes.
75
Baltimore Sun
A slice-of-life where being gay is a fact of daily existence, not an excuse for existential dilemmas or grand tragedies.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
So likable, we go with it on its chosen level.
67
Funny and friendly and all-inclusive and unremarkable.
63
New York Post
Turns out to be a choppily written, unevenly acted exercise, no less shlocky and predictable than any of Hollywood's average second-string heterosexual comedies.
63
Philadelphia Inquirer
An undemanding and reassuring amiability that made it a crowd-pleaser at Sundance.
60
Emerges as an engaging if occasionally hokey inspirational melodrama about the importance of community in the face of life's disappointments.
30
L.A. Weekly
He (Berlanti) shoots for bland entertainment and scores.
20
Village Voice
Bloated loquaciousness, damp self-absorption, and defensive reflexiveness on display here.
