Critic Reviews for Little Manhattan

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (7)

  • As directed by Mark Levin, Little Manhattan is an endearing, affectionately humorous and even lyrical depiction of the dawning of adolescence amid the privileged.

    December 2, 2005 | Rating: 3/5
  • A moderately charming comedy depicting a fumbling prepubescent first romance in a beautiful, fairy-tale version of the borough.

    September 30, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Seeks to be a whimsical premise but, except for a few moments, proves ponderous instead.

  • A big surprise, a comedy detailing the angst of first love with rare candor.

    September 30, 2005 | Rating: 3/4
  • What a treasure -- a funny, tart, romantic comedy about tweens suffering the pangs of first love. It makes the cityscape an essential part of the romance, like a junior, vintage Woody Allen.

    September 30, 2005 | Rating: 3/4
  • This small-scale, perfectly acted family film listens in on all the doubts and desires of an 11-year-old as he confronts new feelings about a girl he has known practically all his life.

    Little Manhattan is not your ordinary story about love and perhaps a very realistic tale about first romance. It's really cute and sweet. It is slightly reminiscent of (500) Days of Summer for me. Honestly, I already fell in love with it even before it reached its first minute. Like most of the films that captured my heart, Little Manhattan's beauty is beyond words, too. Sometimes, a motion picture can be very simple and still manage to be a true marvel. I now have a new addition to my favorites.
