Despite its awkward title, Starter for 10 is a winning coming-of-age tale told with grace and charm.

Wall Street Journal
A surprisingly agile and delightfully warm romantic comedy.
75
There's a tidiness and affection to this British homage to John Hughes movies.
75
Jolly good show.

Philadelphia Inquirer
McAvoy is charismatic, funny, and on the mark. Hall and Eve are both just right in their roles - bringing depth and detail to what could have been caricature parts. And if Starter for 10 takes a turn into foolhardy tragedy, it doesn't linger too long there.
75
Chicago Tribune
Starter for 10 is cute and smart, just like its star triangle, and it's also well-written, acted and directed.
75
Shifting the self-deprecating japery of "High Fidelity" from a record store to a quiz show makes Starter for 10 a sweetly endearing date movie.
75
San Francisco Examiner
Some nice performances and modest laughs highlight this amiable British comedy.
75
While at times overly familiar, the film never feels self-mocking.
63
New York Daily News
This is cheeky sitcom in a minor key, and fated to be a mere footnote on McAvoy's resume.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
The film successfully replicates the mellow charm of Brit hits "About A Boy" and "Love Actually."
