Critic Reviews for Front Cover

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

The film's examination of the first-generation American experience feels fresh. The delivery, however, is hardly original.

September 29, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's a root-worthy picture with its share of warm, amusing moments, an attractive pair of leads and a vivid use of Big Apple locales.

August 11, 2016 | Full Review…

If there isn't much subtlety or surprise in Yeung's screenplay, his direction is graceful enough to make this a pleasant if unmemorable bittersweet love story.

August 5, 2016 | Full Review…

Whatever nuance can be found in Front Cover, the story of an openly gay fashion stylist and a seemingly homophobic Chinese movie star, belongs chiefly to the performances of Jake Choi and James Chen.

[A] sexy, ambitious comic drama.

August 5, 2016 | Full Review…

While the film adheres to the conventions of romantic melodramas, its fascinations from a cultural perspective remain strong throughout.
