...Sex in the City meets Queer as Folk in New York City's bear scene.

Slant Magazine

Director Douglas Langway is aware that while bear-ness could be seen as a response to a culture obsessed with gender-conformant and hairless young bodies, it can also be a rather unoriginal one.

Enjoyable. The script...features nice, authentic repartee among the guys but can't quite decide whether to show the bear lifestyle as wholesome or debauched.

With its voyeuristic gawking of faintly explicit sexual acts in a dark club setting, BearCity has more in common with William Friedkin's Cruising (made in 1980) than an upbeat modern film should.

Of the crop of gay-centered features from TLA Releasing...the romantic dramedy BearCity certainly shows the most complexity.

Douglas Langway's middling comedy is sort of a Sex and the City for big, hirsute gay guys and the younger cubs who fancy them...

There's probably an audience for this literally fuzzy slice of gay life, but as Sam Goldwyn was wont to say, include me out.

Eventually buckles under the weight of affable but unfunny camp.

Despite a schmaltzy original score and some clunky direction, the film's well-portrayed characters and spot-on depiction of the scene make this a pleasant enough romp.

Eye for Film

A film which is part coming out story, part romcom, and utterly uninspired throughout.
