Village Voice
Loosely based on writer-director Adam Sherman's similar cult upbringing and disillusionment, the film builds on a fascinating cautionary tale, but doesn't develop its characters past whatever movie-of-the-week crisis each suffers from. Full Review
Amy Nicholson
Boxoffice Magazine
We get the broad strokes of how the hippies corrupted their own movement, but there isn't a single lead character we'd give a dollar to on Haight Street. Full Review
Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times
An astoundingly bad memory piece that blows its potential dramatic heft at every turn. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
The kids' story gets out of control, but Andie MacDowell is a pleasantly earthy mess as Victor's out-of-it mother, and familiar New York faces (Ann Magnuson, Mark Boone Jr., Richard Edson) lend quirky support as the out-of-it elders. Full Review
Peter Debruge
Sherman's personal wounds feel fresh, which makes for a superficially beautiful but otherwise bitter story. Full Review
