Film critic Roger Ebert gave the movie a one-star rating, but admitted that he already walked out after 8 minutes. After receiving heavy criticism for rating a movie without having the courtesy to watch it completely, he went back to see the movie in its entirety, and promised to 'never, ever' do it again.

Done as a light comedy, while dealing with serious subject matter, this was a very worthwhile and valuable movie. I enjoyed it very much, as did those all around me. It was done with both serious straight on acting and also tongue in cheek comedic acting, which somehow balanced out well – a perfect fit! The lead actress who played Tru was just wonderful. She was so natural and real. All the young actors were wonderful and played their parts perfectly. -- Our big stars of the future! ( I'm serious!!)
Those who played their parts just slightly over the top, as their parts were clearly meant to be, were fabulous. They made it fun and kept it all rolling along.
There it all was – the social struggles of high school, the foolishness of our actions in those years of growing and finding ourselves – the pain and cruelty and strength and kindness and sadness and young love and yearning --- and, and, and -- .
Personally, I could have done without the fantasy scenes; I found them okay, but unnecessary and somewhat distracting, however in talking with others that were there, they loved those scenes, so who's to say.
All in all, the cast was fantastic, the subject matter timeless and always important in our growth, and --very entertainingly presented.
