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.

Los Angeles Times
An exceptional coming-of-age film--subtle, humorous, compassionate, acutely perceptive.
75
Portland Oregonian
Delivers the oft-trod subject of boys' sexuality with intelligence and freshness.
75
Baltimore Sun
A more honest version of "Summer of '42."

New York Daily News
Director Gay deals so honestly with the boys' emotions, it's almost a revelation when compared to Hollywood fabrications.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Rambling and easygoing, Nico and Dani is a modest but frank look at adolescent lust, both heterosexual and homosexual.
50
Christian Science Monitor
The acting is amiable but the story isn't much deeper than the callow main characters.
50
Sweet and harmless -- a beach movie in more ways than one -- but it doesn't run awfully deep.
50
L.A. Weekly
Filled with the kind of frank, nonsensational sensuality that eludes American filmmakers, this movie proves again that the most interesting cinema about teenage life -- gay and otherwise -- is being made far from our provincial shores.
20
Everyone will be indifferent, as indifferent and uncaring as the characters the film portrays.
