Kate Taylor Globe and Mail It is intensely well observed, but somewhat lacking in drama. It is lightly nostalgic about its moment in history. It's probably autobiographical. And it doesn't have much of an ending. Rated: 3/4 Jun 19, 2009 Full Review Liz Braun Jam! Movies A tiny perfect gem about the no-man's-land of adolescence.

Audience Member A decent drama set in Toronto 1988!!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best canadian films i have seen. A very real life, normal depiction of teens in a movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This film was wonderfully delightful. The hockey references were so amusing. I feel it ended too abruptly. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw this at the Calgary Film Festival. A very nice little Canadian movie. It really captures life in Southern Ontario suburbs in the 1980's. Lots of pressure on Ben as he juggles parents, girls, hockey playoffs and his future. You can sure pack a lot into a long weekend when you're in High School, eh? Not very satisfied with ending but the parallel with the 1988 NHL playoffs is a "Great One". Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A nuanced perspective of growing up as a 2nd gen Russian immigrant in North York in the 80s. There isn't really an ending to speak of but the scenes, characters, and humour are really well done. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member One of those movies where I end up a little envious of the main character -- a liar with lots of integrity.
