Uneven in visual and dramatic quality, are unquestionably sincere in their efforts to examine the sexual and psychological nuances of a range of relationships from adolescence to old age.

As a whole, the appeal of Boys to Men has more to do with its uncommon subject matter than with its original cinematic qualities.
