TV Guide

By Ken Fox
Christensen simultaneously avoids all the cliches that might have been heaped upon her beautifully rendered characters and roots their travails in everything that makes for a good soap: tragedy, tears, sexual tension, misplaced letters and a slightly sardonic voice-over that teases the plot lines like the old-fashioned, "tune in tomorrow" narrator of yesteryear.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Ruthe Stein
An amusing melodrama.

Casts an entrancing spell thanks to understated perfs by leads and Christensen's featherlight touch with Kim Fupz Aakeson's screenplay.

By Andrew O'Hehir
If Christensen's conventional plot is somewhat at odds with her downbeat realism, the idea that these characters are willing to fight like cats and dogs, and destroy each other and themselves, to avoid confronting their intense attraction to each other is totally convincing.

The New York Times

By Stephen Holden
So sensitively acted you can almost buy its premise that love (in this case, neighborly affection and dependence) might rewire sexuality.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
The movie strands you in two miserable flats with these cliche-ridden characters and a static love story that is as predictable as it is pedestrian.
