“A John Hughes movie directed by François Truffaut. The laughter is weirdly muted, and there’s a rueful longing that undercuts the farce. At heart, this is the story of a kid discovering that the world is really a much smaller, sadder place than he’d ever imagined. It’s gangly, deeply felt and ends at least a scene or two after it probably should. Still, lovely.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 04/01/2009
