Critic Reviews of "Breaking Away"TIME MagazineAugust 03, 2008
There are a few moments when the picture's easygoing pace turns into wobbliness, but these are insignificant compared with its many moments of shrewd insight into the lives of amusingly shaded but very recognizable human beings.VarietyMarch 21, 2007
Though its plot wins no points for originality, Breaking Away is a thoroughly delightful light comedy.Chicago ReaderMarch 21, 2007
Peter Yates, previously typed as an action director, lends the film a fine, unexpected limpidity, and the principals are mostly excellent.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Displays the kind of unsentimental optimism that went out of fashion with Hawks.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
Breaking Away is a wonderfully sunny, funny, goofy, intelligent movie that makes you feel about as good as any movie in a long time. It is, in fact, a treasure.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Here is a movie so fresh and funny it didn't even need a big budget or a pedigree.Common Sense MediaDecember 18, 2010
Rousing bicycle race story is a family favorite.CinemaniaJuly 22, 2010
Breaking Away embraces the good old fashioned small town family values that would catapult Ronald Reagan to an enormously popular two term presidency. And still, I like it.Film and FeltMarch 12, 2010
The triumphant ending teeters on twee, but feels warranted enough to give it a pass and enjoy the moment right along with him.Film4August 03, 2008
Christopher is so good in this quietly charming, Yates-drected tale of four high school graduates trying to decide what to do with their lives that it's a wonder he didn't achieve the heights of co-star Quaid.TV GuideMarch 21, 2007
A delightful sleeper.
