All Critics (25) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (5)

  • "Alex Strangelove" is witty, compassionate and enjoyable throughout; a charming movie and in many respects an enlightened one.

  • Alex Strangelove ultimately serves as a funny-and occasionally filthy-commentary on heteronormativity and the work that goes into overcoming certain ingrained expectations about the trajectory of a life.

  • As a modern coming-of-age movie, one that's especially meant to keep the progressive values of teen Netflix on the home page for another week or so, it does have a fair amount of charm.

    June 9, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a lovely little gem.

    June 8, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • It can't help but hit a lot of familiar beats. But its script feels personal, and less airbrushed than most in its recollection of the utter uncoolness of being a teenager.

    June 7, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's hard to fault the bigger message here: that we all deserve the right to be true to who we are, even if it takes a few hard turns - and some collateral emotional damage - to get there.

    Even if the beats are predictable it feels honest, like Johnson is pulling from his own memories. It's also funny which is a bit of a relief.
