Village Voice
Forster not only makes this unlikely story emotionally believable, he moves you to tears. Lakeboat isn't much of a film, but for Forster fans, it's indispensable. Full Review

The New York Times
Mr. Mantegna, who as an actor is one of the leading interpreters of Mr. Mamet's work, gives generous room to the movie's first-rate ensemble. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
So fractured and so awkwardly staged that end result is an uninvolving film that’s dramatically inert and artistically shapeless. Full Review

L.A. Weekly
Mamet's fixation on language is, nonetheless, more effective onstage than onscreen, where the technical and visual requirements distract from the sounds of the words -- the heart of Mamet's work. Full Review

New York Daily News
Students of acting will appreciate the relish with which the characters bite off juicy chunks of dialogue. Full Review
