This movie is the best movie of the new year! It is refreshing, especially where now a days movies are either overly romantic or overly filled with action/explosions. It is filled with love, laughter and true friendship. It was written, directed, and stared by Michael Rosenbaum. AMAZING MOVIE!!

So looking forward to seeing this movie from my hometown. Sadly, I could barely stay in the theater. Language was deplorable. Can anyone write a comedy that's cleaner? I felt dumber just for watching this movie!

Movie had a great story and they could of left out some of the bad language and the nudity. Very funny..

This movie was hilarious . I rate it at a level of a Fast Times at Ridgemont High coupled with a little bit of Ferris Buellers Day Off. Go see it awesome and filmed in the small but proud midwest!!

It's good for a couple of fart jokes and otherwise utterly forgettable. Full Review

There are a lot of odious movies yet to come in 2014, no doubt, but they’ll have to work to beat Back in the Day for awfulness. Full Review

The Dissolve
It’s a film that feels like it’s simply going through the motions—not to mention one whose ultimate critique of trying to relive the past is, in light of its mass of clichés, more than a tad disingenuous. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Cloying and smug when it's not being unfunny and crass, the high school reunion comedy Back in the Day hits lows with a frequency that suggests a world-class sharp shooter or free-throw king. Full Review
Sheila O'Malley
The film is shot in a pretty stock manner, with jokes falling flat (when one does land, it feels like a miracle) and musical cues guiding us toward appropriate emotional responses. Full Review
