Critic Reviews for You're a Big Boy Now

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (2)

  • It's clear Coppola had storytelling talent to burn, and this whimsically sweet movie is certainly one of the best Manhattan time capsules from that era.

    October 3, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Francis Coppola has drawn topflight performances from his talented cast.

    December 11, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Coppola's style had healthy roots in the screwball comedies of the '30s, and the glorious performances litter the film with moments to treasure.

    June 24, 2006
  • A magnetically exasperating comic strip of a movie.

    May 9, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Coppola has fun directing, and his film is filled with sight jokes, high-spirited performances and a lively sound track by the Lovin' Spoonful.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • You're a Big Boy Now slides up and down the escalators of charm, wayward fancy, stabs at taking itself seriously, and exuberantly crisp and funny observation.

Audience Reviews for You're a Big Boy Now

  • Jul 12, 2007
    Francis Ford Coppola's introductory offering gives primarily a different take on the 1960's coming-of-age genre, different than say "The Graduate", although many of the same elements are present (part of my recent return to some of the films that formed my ideas about film). Novel editing, music that syncs with the story, quirky characters, all present. "This is the same guy who made "The Godfather", and "Apocalypse Now"," you will ask yourself while smiling throughout at this little gem. And one of the few times Karen Black played "the good girl" (nearly making it must see for that reason alone).
