Sober Film Critic James Brown100 - If Wes Anderson and John Hughes were to have collaborated on a film, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl would have been the wacky, entertaining byproduct of their efforts.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's film works on many levels as it's a coming-of-age, buddy flick, high school movie, tearjerker, and inventive indie rolled into one.

Bryan Lienesch72 - What starts out as a sharp, funny take on the traditional high school film fades into a dull, depressing teen dramedy.
