Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide 7 of 10
Sharp bits of humor and the blue-collar setting add punch to the proceedings, resulting in a winning coming-out/coming-of-age story. - Leonard Maltin

San Francisco Examiner 8 of 10
Beautiful Thing manages to do what few films have done--convey coming out with the specificity that draws viewers in while conveying a universality that hits home... its tale of how a teenage boy's self-discovery affects his relationship with his mother will no doubt resonate with gays, lesbians and their families everywhere. - Barry Walters
