Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
It's a funny, fearless, poignant, spectacular performance. Come to think of it, those words could well apply to the entirety of Tadpole. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
An irreverent and witty comedy in which the events aren't predictable but are well paced. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Doesn't need the passage of time to become a classic. It's one already. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Oscar's life has the potential to become a Greek tragedy, but Winick keeps things light enough that it resolutely stays a comedy. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Though sloppily structured and sometimes dangerously flimsy (not to mention truncated at a mere 78 minutes), Tadpole has an unforced charm that compensates for the absence of more traditional cinematic virtues. Full Review
