Village Voice
Boys is first-rate cinema archaeology. What pushes it beyond that is the brutal honesty with which the sibling rivalry between the elder Shermans is depicted; theirs is a palpable mixture of love and disdain that led to the men not socializing with each other for more than 40 years. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
A touching and illuminating documentary. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Engaging documentary draws on plentiful archival footage and A-list interviewees, and should lure dedicated nostalgists. Full Review

New York Daily News
A vital one for movie fans. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
The Boys is so heartfelt that it elicits a sense that complex creative relationships may ultimately elude explication, leaving Jeffrey Sherman to speculate that the friction between his father and his uncle was what brought their songs alive. Full Review
