Coming-of-age comedy with some sex.

April 29, 2009
It's a flawed but satisfying movie with a great leading man, and a slew of great supporting performances.
January 7, 2004
Oscar's romantic plight plays well for subtle pathos in addition to laughs.

May 20, 2003
In a summer wrought with action adventures and dramatic epics, it's a refreshing change to trust in the teachings and maturity of a 15-year-old.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

The worst movie of 2002: 'Any film with such a formulaic foundation...faces the burden of succeeding in spite of it, yet Tadpole just dumbly offers it back up to us.'

Like a final project from a student film class, it has a raw and unsophisticated look...But that might be a good thing.

The film might have been more satisfying if it had, in fact, been fleshed out a little more instead of going for easy smiles.

The film pivots entirely on Aaron Stanford's performance, and he is super.

A real step forward for the digital video revolution.

September 5, 2002
Tadpole has more than its share of problems, true, but they are problems that can be borne.

August 23, 2002
It lacks the lushly romantic sensibility that made Woody Allen's similarly themed (and unfortunately prophetic) Manhattan seem plausible.

While this is no Harold and Maude -- one of the best films about an older woman and younger man -- Tadpole has an irresistible charm.
August 22, 2002
Short and sweet, but also more than anything else slight... Tadpole pulls back from the consequences of its own actions and revelations.

A small, charming indie.

Its direction, its script, and Weaver's performance as a vaguely discontented woman of substance make for a mildly entertaining 77 minutes, if that's what you're in the mood for.

August 21, 2002
In every respect, director Gary Winick has served up a delectable, entertaining film.
August 20, 2002
It has little teen humour, with the majority of the cast unlikely to see 40 again, and there is not enough plot substance to constitute an incentive for the older crowd.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 16, 2002
The terrific performances of Weaver and Neuwirth notwithstanding, little of this is very amusing. And it doesn't help that the film is visually offensive.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

This particular Tadpole grows into neither a frog nor a prince.
