Critic Reviews

  1. The movie's entertaining for some wickedly funny situations and witticisms.
  2. 80
    Surprisingly, this didactic and self-consciously clever romantic comedy isn't annoying -- it's refreshing, moving, and at times quite funny.
  3. Mr. Showbiz

    While both leads are appealing enough, it's the stuff on the sidelines that keeps All Over the Guy entertaining.
  4. Davis, with a nicely turned and witty screenplay from Bucatinsky, freshens up the familiar predicament by having her two lovers recount the affair to a stranger.
  5. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon
    Lightweight but likable romantic comedy about two mismatched gay singletons who are, of course, made for each other.
  6. A romantic comedy of wit and substance that actor-writer Dan Bucatinsky and director Julie Davis have moved gracefully from stage to screen with a change of title and sexual orientation.

    Snappy but sappy romantic comedy.
  8. 58
    It's still trite and a little too cutesy for its own good. Gay or straight, the cliches remain, but not to a stultifying degree.
  9. The film leaves an acrid taste with the viewer who sits through its long and winding tale of tortured courtship.
  10. 50
    A delight when its comic elements are in high gear.
  11. This modest picture is distinguished by some marvelously bitchy dialogue.
  12. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    Little more than a screenful of boy meets boy, boy meets baggage, boy loses baggage.
  13. If you want to watch a gaggle of pretty faux-neurotic people hang out and throw quips, you're probably better off watching "Friends."
  14. 40
    The redeeming features of All Over the Guy are the consistently engaging performances and some genuinely funny dialogue.
  15. May be free of gay stereotypes, but it's absolutely riddled with romantic cliches. It's hard to see the progress in that.
  16. 30
    Sitcom humor substitutes for wit, and tedious angst supplies the drama.
  17. 30
    Some kind of equality has been achieved when it is impossible to distinguish heterosexual clichés from homosexual ones.
  18. 25
    Indulges in some of the crudest Jewish stereotypes seen in a recent movie, right down to the crack about every Jewish girl having a nose job.
  19. The movie means well, but neither its emotions nor its performances ring very true.
  20. 20
    A painfully earnest case of generic romance spiced with queerness.

    Honestly, I loved this movie. Will it win an Oscar, no, but the writing and performances are snappy and quite true characters in real life,Honestly, I loved this movie. Will it win an Oscar, no, but the writing and performances are snappy and quite true characters in real life, sure some of it is over the top ridiculous, but you can't help but laugh and all 4 leads did a really good job.
