The strength of this agreeable comedy, directed by Simon Shore from a screenplay by Patrick Wilde, is that it makes even the tiniest sexual encounters seem emotionally momentous.
July 24, 2007
Fresh, funny and thoroughly engaging.
July 24, 2007
Simon Shore's feature directing debut displays considerable confidence and aplomb. But his fairly hackneyed sense of storytelling seems to value accessibility above complexity, so don't expect any surprises.
July 24, 2007
An issue movie, a comedy, and a love story, this is pretty good at being all three.

The film is grounded in genuine emotions and its knowing humour serves it well. I laughed like a drain.
June 3, 2006
Charming and romantic enough to get by.
December 6, 2005
The rather unoriginal script, co-written by Shore and Patrick Wilde (who wrote the stage play upon which the film is based), has roughly an equal number of clever lines and embarrassing clunkers.
December 6, 2005
The performances are solid throughout, and the writing is straightforward and tight.

succeeds in conveying the misery that always results when people try to hide their true selves to impress others.

A by-the-numbers coming-out flick that's rescued by a bit of insight into human nature and some heartfelt performances.

It does a fair job and director Shore elicits a solid performance by Silverstone.

Get Real is essentially a conventional tale of forbidden young love that derives its emotional appeal from heartfelt performances by its young cast, particularly the charming Mr. Silverstone.
June 18, 2002
When the film's poised tone and occasional staginess threaten to intrude on the moving, sincere, recognizably true drama, the fact that the source material comes from a recent work, not some 400-year-old play, keeps it real.
