Ratings & Reviews

  • Ostensibly a story about first love in college, and I never believed a frame of it.

  • The highlights of the movie are a great song, Sam Phillips' "I Need Love,'' which comes at the end, and Stiles' affecting crying scene.

  • There's nothing wrong with Down to You that a smart script and savvy direction couldn't cure.
