    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Yup, director Michael Lehmann, far from the glory days of "Heathers," has made a movie about a hard-on, in which he relentlessly pounds a flaccid premise. show more

    San Francisco Chronicle

    Builds up comic force in its first half. But then it blows it, leaving the audience feeling unsatisfied. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Within a certain narrow range, Hartnett shows some comic flair -- though not enough to carry the picture over its considerable rough spots. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    It's very funny, terrifically lively and, considering how awful it might have been, surprisingly tender in its portrait of a young guy who learns sensitivity the hard way. show more

    It's rare that a movie is so graceful and so gross. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    A curious entry in the current wave of raunchy youth comedies. It's refreshingly free of scatological humor, but even while aiming higher, it can't raise its focus above the belt. show more

    Hartnett shows here a breezy command of his charming, likable character. It is a reminder of his talent and versatility. show more

    The quality writing, delivered by likable Hartnett and his talented co-stars, makes up for the sometimes flat production. A richly humorous background is provided by well-played eccentric minor characters. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    This pretty but witless movie is well-produced, slickly directed -- full of jokes about hot dudes and hot babes pitched right at the "American Pie" crowd. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    The film's biggest problem, however, is its naive inability to understand that sex comedies, to amuse, must be about more than sex. show more
