Village Voice
Bacon the director indulges his wife, letting her play crazy and emotional in a showy performance that screams "serious actress." Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
Loverboy is a grim little story, but it's leavened unexpectedly with humor and energy. A stylish and thoughtful director, Bacon marries music to image beautifully. Full Review
Chuck Wilson
L.A. Weekly
actor-turned-director Kevin Bacon (Sedgwick's husband) can't seem to decide if he's making a film about a loving eccentric or a sociopath. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
A classic case of "Better if you didn't read the book" cinema, Loverboy emerges an OK character study of an abnormally possessive mother. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
The real trouble is at its core, with an over-the-top performance from Sedgwick that borders on Baby Jane campiness. Full Review
