...a well-intentioned effort...

The contrast is inviting, the emotional momentum is there, and the dramatic situations are ripe with potential...and then the viewer is faced with Klein, Prinze Jr., and Sigler doing all the heavy lifting. How deflating.

Uninspired performances and a lack of chemistry fail to project whatever has brought and kept the film's odd couple together.

Suffers from mediocre performances and a contrived and silly screenplay that, ultimately, makes it falls flat as a drama, comedy and satire.

One of those pointless indies that you'll have forgotten before the credits roll.

The overgrown boys at its center are so unappealing that the setting certainly won't make their trials worth your time.

The movie is a character study about two underachieving dullards scarcely worth contemplating.

The reason this 2007 drama has languished for so long could be that it's a bromance whose moment has only now arrived; more likely, it's because Frank Whaley's lightweight slice of life is so crashingly ordinary.

Possesses a poorly explored but fecund meta-analysis of juvenile semi-stardom that demands a more sensitive treatment.

Boxoffice Magazine

Prinze's limited range as an actor drags down a spirited performance by Klein, but the script is too awful to give either of them much hope.

Screen International

Doesn't break enough rules of the mid-1990's Sundance coming-of-age buddy template to bring any new insights to the bonds of male friendship.

This ersatz Swingers attempts to tap into the male psyche as represented by a pair of one-note losers (played by Freddie Prinze Jr. and Chris Klein), but the self-absorbed film keeps playing the same, talky refrain.

A series of sour notes.
