Critics: A moving tale with wryly funny moments. - USA Today

- This film rebukes and corrects countless brainless and cheap sex scenes in other movies. It's a reminder that we must be kind to one another. - Chicago Sun Times

- This is one of the best, and certainly one of the best-acted, films of the year. I can't think of another film that mixed compassion and carnality in such an eloquent way. - Capital Times
