Arquette and Spano hit exactly the right note.

TV Guide
February 27, 2008
Sayles's class-consciousness is telling as always, and the director is so good at creating complex, persuasive characters that one is tempted to overlook narrative weaknesses, especially in the final third of the film.

John Sayles takes on a genre movie and makes something that ends up as distinctive as his trademark ensemble films.

As a filmmaker, Sayles still seems more likable than incisive or original, but it's a likability with a certain brilliance.

One of John Sayles' lesser films, but Arquette and Spano are good, and Sayles manages to make an "opposites attract" story that doesn't seem stale.
| Original Score: 3/5

Arquette, still green under the gills when this flick was made, doesn't light up the screen. Neither does Spano, despite being dubbed one of the "12 most promising young actors of 1983".

A peculiarly absorbing and sticky film, Baby, It's You is all the more so for its relative uniqueness in Sayles' oeuvre.
