San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
A poignant, quirky and effective alternative to the usual soulless, computer-generated summer fare.

Lyrical and funny, Full Grown Men is a tough-minded film about the need to grow up.

Film Threat

In the end, Full Grown Men tells an amusing tale, and the cameo scenes from Alan Cumming and Amy Sedaris are not to be missed.

Variety

By Justin Chang
A strong cast, beautiful production values and generally pleasant execution can't disguise the fact both laughs and surprises are on the thin side here, despite the abundant care and affection lavished on the central characters by first-time writer-director David Munro.

Obviously, Munro is reaching for something about how people allow themselves to get mired in the past. But his characters and situations are so exaggerated and dreary that his point gets quickly lost.

Nicely photographed and has impressive sets; too bad there's so little going on that it seems long even at 78 minutes.
