      Dave Kehr New York Times It's the best kind of homemade movie, created with skill, modesty and a pleasing awareness of what works in an ultra-low-budget format that tends to be performance and storytelling, rather than visual expressiveness and technical polish. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 26, 2002 Full Review V.A. Musetto New York Post The story doesn't break any new ground, but the movie has energy. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 26, 2002 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Merle Bertrand Film Threat Most of the performances are solid, if a bit over the top. Rated: 3/5 Dec 8, 2002 Full Review Ken Fox TV Guide Bitingly funny, poignantly sad. Rated: 4/5 Sep 26, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews
