    Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle

    A pleasant addition to the time-honored genre of terminally cute youth romance movies, roughly equivalent to staring at a saccharine greeting card for a while. show more

    Philadelphia Inquirer

    The highlights of the movie are a great song, Sam Phillips' "I Need Love,'' which comes at the end, and Stiles' affecting crying scene. show more

    Just another cutesy, rather toothless comedy about the pitfalls of first love. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    The confusion it mistakes for true soul-searching is about as realistic a look at the politics of youthful attraction as one of those "Did somebody say McDonald's?" commercials is a look at mainstream American family values. Did somebody say McCheese? show more
