ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Introducing the Dwights is a coming of age story that (thankfully) doesn't play coy with issues of sexuality. The film, from Australian director Cherie Nowlan, doesn't always move smoothly (it has a tendency to jump around a little, especially in the early going) and it avoids overt heartstring tweaking...While the material may not be new, its handling is fresh and honest and the lead performances are top notch...Introducing the Dwights is being marketed as a comedy, which is probably a mistake. While there are some laughs to be had (most notably during a scene when Tim's dad provides his son with a few life lessons about what women want and how to deal with them after an argument), the movie is darker and more weighty than one might expect from a so-called "comedy." Just because one of the main characters happens to be a stand-up comedian does not automatically mean the production will be wall-to-wall laughs. Dramatically, the film is on solid ground - it gives us a few interesting characters and allows us to follow them through a critical phase of change and growth. It does what all good coming of age movies do, and that makes it a worthy and welcome entry into the genre.

Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer ...Nowlan creates vivid personalities for the entire family and exposes the raw nerves of the biting humor.
Stephen Schaefer, Boston Herald Nothing less than exhilarating...Fresh and heartbreakingly real.
