A pulsating snapshot of America caught in a mad, liberating identity crisis.

Christian Science Monitor
The story is a mess, as usual with Toback's movies, but intricacies of contemporary urban culture are vividly illuminated by his insistence on blurring the boundaries between fiction and reality.

Slate
Gleefully pushes everyone's buttons...and that manages to exploit our own racial discomfort and envy in ways that leave us hungry for more.
67
Fascinating, perplexing, amusing, and irascible.

It's another of Mr. Toback's quick-talking autobiographies that, like the best pop, have a clock running on their expiration dates.

New York Daily News
There's something deeper at play in the film, something psychologically foul, voyeuristic and personal.
50
New York Post
At heart a cliché-strewn melodrama about a bunch of white, upper-class Manhattan kids who aspire to ghetto culture.
40
Strident and bombastic.
20
Chicago Reader
An extravagant mess.
20
Village Voice
Peaks with its opening scene.
