Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Every couple of years a film comes out that takes the independent circuit by storm. It’s usually a film billed as a romantic comedy, but ends up being a straight forward, brutally honest romantic drama. Two young, kind of popular stars are cast and a no name director that is sure to get a few project offers that he or she might not have gotten before is in charge. The problem I have with these movies is simple; they aren’t that great. They’re not bad films by any stretch of the imagination, there in fact really enjoyable because of their honesty, but the flaws drag them down from being a great, small little picture that manages to completely capture every audience to a typical depressing romantic drama that struggles staying afloat because of a minor misstep that could have easily been fixed. Like Crazy is one of those movies."
