The A.V. Club

By Scott Tobias
From the combustible opening-credits sequence, Caan displays a whip-crack sense of timing, pace, and energy that's so rare for a first-time filmmaker that it's tempting to call him a savant.

Variety

By Scott Foundas
Has a relaxed poeticism to it; it's a sweetly naive, adolescent Hemingway fantasy with a star-making performance by Shawn Hatosy and good ones from everyone else (including Caan).

By Jack Mathews
Clearly, Caan's major influence is Quentin Tarantino, though he manages only a weak imitation. But give him credit for casting Kelly Lynch and Jeff Goldblum and letting them go.

By Phil Hall
At 100 minutes in running time, Dallas 362 can be called "The Amateur Hour-and-40-Minutes."
