Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Subscribes wholeheartedly to the history-as-pornography school of thinking, in which all will be revealed if you can figure out who is sleeping with whom, when and where and what they do in bed. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Feb 27, 2009

Rotten: The title sums up the bland, unimaginative and cliche-laden thriller/coming-of-age tale. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The Cuban Missile Crisis is a year passed and the assassination is looming, and yet Adam's pubescent crises are given Wagnerian emphasis. – John Anderson, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: There are scenes that work here and there, but regrettably not nearly enough to hold the film together. In the end, this affair is definitely not one to remember. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2010

Why am I the only one

This movie is great why I'm I the only one to make a comment?

This movie was terrible!

From bad acting (Noah Wylie perhaps the only exception), this movie with it's implausible plot, one-dimensional acting, less than sympathetic acting and limited talent in terms of the direction really stank. The only thing going for it was the music by Dustin Halloran. I actually rented it by mistake, thinking I was purchasing the soundtrack, so decided to watch it. Total waste of my time.

Very Good:-)

Great acting and good plot
