The First Time

Drama . Comedy . Romance

Dave, a high school senior, spends most of his time pining away over a girl he can’t have.

A casual conversation sparks an instant connection, and, over the course of a weekend, things turn magical, romantic, complicated, and funny as Aubrey and Dave discover what it's like to fall in love for the first time.

  • Noel Murray

    In the first 15 minutes, viewers may be rolling their eyes at these kids; by the end, they might be eager to re-watch that opening scene, to get to know them all over again.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Something of a wonder, a palm-size ball of banter and irony and earnestness that never stops rolling and almost never misses the sweet spots.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Sure, you've seen this story before, but this version has a freshness nonetheless.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    There is much to like here, a sense of nuance and nonjudgmental emotional openness, yet Kasdan's teenage miniaturism never quite blooms. The First Time is respectfully delicate, a little too polite.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    An inoffensive but bland ode to the talky high school movies of John Hughes and Cameron Crowe.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Feels slight and pretty ordinary by the end, with no edge or compelling insights, just a reasonable feel for teen attitudes and banter.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    This teen romance proves perilously short on substance, insight and novelty, unless you count its characters being afflicted with a case of "Juno" mouth.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Sex and love are both novel experiences for two high schoolers in this talky affair that suggests a hybrid of Before Sunset and Some Kind of Wonderful.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Let your mind wander during this painfully generic teen-sex dramedy (trust us, it will), and there might be emotions worse than frustration in store.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The First Time sets out to be the thinking kids' teen sex comedy but misses the mark by failing its characters. [18 Oct 2012]
