G.B.F is a breath of fresh air to the tired and usually mundane teen genre.
May 8, 2020
On the surface the film resembles a gay reworking of a John Hughes teen flick, except the slang often rings hollow and the script too often falls back on cliché and caricature.

Director Darren Stein's frequently on-target satire had me laughing enough to keep it interesting.

G.B.F. is an endearing and sweet coming-of-age comedy, as good a teen movie as the classics we know and love.

The film is cliché-heavy, yes, but GBF has some LOL moments and real heart, and gets its point across without too much Hollywood sentiment.

Even as its large smattering of one-liners contains as many hits as it does misses, G.B.F. does what many films of its ilk often forget to do, which is portray realistic and believable characters that are as flawed as they may be innately charming.

If you like any teen comedies that fall into similar categories as Mean Girls or Easy A, then you'll find this film enjoyable.
July 12, 2017
Writer George Northy embraces the high school dilemma and fuses it with a touch of drama that gives the film massive heart.
May 20, 2014
Extremely edgy comedy sends up gay best friend stereotypes.

It's a light, fluffy concoction but one so playful and unpretentious that it's easy to like. This is the high school movie gay teens have been waiting for.
March 21, 2014
When you reach the end of this title you feel rather exhausted, so maybe an entire season would be pushing it just that little bit too far.
March 20, 2014
The result is mostly swishy, sweet fun, although admittedly it might have benefitted from a bit of tweaking to fluff up bigger, better, and bitchier one-liners.
March 20, 2014
Chronic bubble-gum highschool farce in which gay characters are reduced to tokenistic social accessories.
March 18, 2014
An original premise and earnest tone go a long way.
March 17, 2014
A colourful, hyperactive romp that, despite attempting to bust apart teen-flick clichés, quickly conforms to type.
March 16, 2014
Fun, sugary sweet and just the right side of kitsch.
February 4, 2014
Politically gentle but winningly averse to any kind of piety.
February 3, 2014
Employing cliches in fresh and unexpected ways, "G.B.F." is endearing, energetic and thoughtful. Parents shouldn't be afraid of the unnecessary R-Rating.
January 30, 2014
There are many moments when the dialogue strains too hard to be hip, and when the humor goes too broad [...] [b]ut it's hard to complain when every scene in G.B.F. seems to unearth a new, pleasant surprise.

I guess I've seen worse teen sex comedies, but it's rare to encounter one this stupid.
