Rob Gonsalves

Different for Girls staggers around, keeping its lovers apart as in any conventional romantic comedy.

Richard Spence's film doesn't have the courage to examine forcefully the issues at its center.

This would be infinitely more likeable if it wasn't for some irritatingly unreal plot development.

Austin Chronicle

Outstanding performances help this provocative British drama seem to tally up to something that is greater than its individual parts. But parts alone do not a solid movie make.

I don't mean to be a stick-in-the-mud, but apart from school days and friendly shared memories, these two truly have nothing in common.

Bland and conventional, despite the sex-change angle, Different for Girls is ultimately not different enough.

The story has a TV movie shorthand calculation and slightness.

As Kim, Mackintosh's performance finds and holds the right notes, of shyness, determination, privacy and love.

One of the reasons why Different for Girls works is because of the caliber of acting.

The subtlety with which Mackintosh conveys her complicated mixture of vulnerability, defensiveness and pride makes [Kim] one of the most fully realized characters to be portrayed on the screen in a long time.

There are all kinds of love relationships in this world, and perhaps they all deserve a romantic comedy this unflinching and this sensitive.

The film engages the audience on a gut level so that we care about Kim and Prentice.

What makes this wonderfully deranged film fly is Rupert ("Maurice"; "Where Angels Fear to Tread") Graves.
