Boston Globe
The film is rightfully carried by Nico and Dani and under Gay's artful helmsmanship it's carried with remarkable sympathy and believability.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
American teenage movies tidy things up by pairing off the right couples at the end. In Europe they know that summers end and life goes on.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
Honest, sensitive and keenly observant.

New York Daily News
Director Gay deals so honestly with the boys' emotions, it's almost a revelation when compared to Hollywood fabrications.
75
Chicago Tribune
While Nico and Dani presents itself as a no-frills coming-of-age tale, its soundtrack seems lifted from a teen comedy like "American Pie."
75
Miami Herald
The movie ultimately turns out to be less about sex than it is about the point in a friendship where two people decide they will both be better off if they part ways.
75
Baltimore Sun
A more honest version of "Summer of '42."
50
San Francisco Chronicle
Sweet and harmless -- a beach movie in more ways than one -- but it doesn't run awfully deep.
50
Christian Science Monitor
The acting is amiable but the story isn't much deeper than the callow main characters.
38
New York Post
A movie more interested in shocking than in entertaining.
