Though hypocritical in the way it sensationalizes sexuality, this serious and funny 1998 movie about a 15-year-old coming to terms with her body and her family in 1976 is, refreshingly, never coy or ironic.

A small film with plenty of incidental pleasures, writer/director Jenkins' debut feature puts a winning new spin on the adolescent comedy-drama.

A marvelous, fresh new coming-of-age comedy-drama, one that breathes fresh new life into the genre.

Jeanne Aufmuth
Palo Alto Weekly

Intelligent, humorous and thoroughly poignant, this can easily hold its own with the best comedies of the year.

Nitrate Online

Terrific performances from Alan Arkin and Natasha Lyonne dominate this engrossing look at a financially strapped Jewish family trying to survive despite their penury.

Lyonne is a natural, and clearly a young actress to watch.

Ultimately it's all a bit predictable -- the cyclical story more or less ends where it begins -- but it's nevertheless a charming and delightful romp, with keen observations about character, time and place.

This zany comedy written and directed by Tamara Jenkins is filled with humorous takes on sexuality in the 1970s.

What lifts this brash comedy above the vulgar herd is Tamara Jenkins in a heartfelt feature debut as writer and director.

James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

It covers some serious topics about adolescence, but it does it with a wink and a knowing nod; some things that are tragic when you're 14 are quite funny in hindsight.
