Village Voice
Despite its chic pedigree, the film projects a shy modesty, a virtue largely attributable to Emile Hirsch's unflashy performance. Full Review

L.A. Weekly
(Emile Hirsch) a miraculous young actor. Full Review
Dave Kehr
The New York Times
Depending on your choice, the film is either an unpleasantly masochistic fantasy or an unpleasantly sadistic one. Full Review
David Rooney
Sensitive direction and a touching performance from Emile Hirsch in the title role help counter some dramatic naivete and awkward, at times unintentional, humor in The Mudge Boy. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
Deeply disturbing, but dramatically realized, and the movie marks Burke as a young talent to watch. Full Review
