“Teeth bites off more than it can chew.” –Todd McCarthy, Variety

“One wonders if this is what a teenage romantic comedy might look like if David Lynch had made it.” –James Berardinelli, ReelViews

“Even if the movie’s little more than a curio, I love the thought of Lichtenstein at the pitch meeting: ‘It’s Jaws meets The Vagina Monologues!'” –Jim Ridley, The Village Voice
