What begins as a sweet story about young love quickly swells to absurd proportions.
Rob Gonsalves

During the long sit, we get symbolism lobbed into our laps like a large you-go-girlfriend beach ball.

Not a single thing anyone says feels true or original.
Christopher Null

Way too little, too late.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Never touches a core of real feeling, instead becoming monumentally silly as Paulie descends into obvious metaphor.

The people who made this movie apparently aren't satisfied just to let you see something when they can talk about it too.

Much of the time Pool seems lost herself, resorting to clichés, redundancy, and dead-end allegory.

It often has a camp ludicrousness, evoking an 'Afterschool Special' inspired by the pages of Penthouse Forum.
| Original Score: 2/5

[Pool is] working with a bigger budget, glossier production values and a much dumber script ... than usual.

Pool can't avoid force-feeding us metaphors -- avian to Shakespearean -- whenever she wants.

Isn't it possible to be true to one's heart without self-destructing?
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Equally earnest and unconvincing.

Barely skirting the lip of the ridiculous.

After a dismal first act salvaged only by Barton's natural talent, Lost slowly settles onto its chosen path.

Cumulatively excruciating in its mawkish symbolism ... quasifeminist posturing (men bad!), and strenuous heterophobia.
Gregory Weinkauf
New Times
July 5, 2001
Festering somewhere between an after-school special and kiddie porn lies this frank but heinously melodramatic open wound.
Dave White
July 5, 2001
It practically slits its own wrists with desperate longing.
Top Critic

Los Angeles Times

The film's title refers to its heroine but ends up describing the movie itself.

Paula Nechak
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
July 20, 2001
The full-throttle, almost Victorian Age hysteria overcomes Pool's usually dependable direction as well as her actors' performances.
