New York Magazine (Vulture)
A hushed and powerful piece.
So emotionally overwhelming that its aesthetics seem almost beside the point.
Short without feeling scant. That's how big its sense of grief is.
New York Post
A devastatingly straightforward chamber piece that goes straight to the heart of what this city was feeling in the days right after Sept. 11.
TV Guide Magazine
Simply and eloquently articulates the tangled feelings of particular New Yorkers deeply touched by an unprecedented tragedy.
A small, heartfelt film.
Christian Science Monitor
A very well-meaning movie, and it will stand in future years as an eloquent memorial to the World Trade Center tragedy.
The A.V. Club
In spite of some affecting moments, the film never quite works. It's too theatrical, perhaps unavoidably.
The New Republic
Nelson's writing, as arranged by Simpson, adds absolutely nothing to our experience of September 11.
The New York Times
What limits The Guys -- what makes it an exercise in art therapy rather than a work of art -- is its decorous refusal to probe deeply into its characters, or to exploit any of the dramatic potential their accidental relationship might contain.
