The film's examination of the first-generation American experience feels fresh. The delivery, however, is hardly original.

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, 2016-09-29

 

It's a root-worthy picture with its share of warm, amusing moments, an attractive pair of leads and a vivid use of Big Apple locales.

Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 2016-08-11

 

If there isn't much subtlety or surprise in Yeung's screenplay, his direction is graceful enough to make this a pleasant if unmemorable bittersweet love story.

Dennis Harvey, Variety, 2016-08-05

 

Whatever nuance can be found in Front Cover, the story of an openly gay fashion stylist and a seemingly homophobic Chinese movie star, belongs chiefly to the performances of Jake Choi and James Chen.

Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter, 2016-08-05

 

[A] sexy, ambitious comic drama.

Robyn Bahr, Village Voice, 2016-08-05

 

While the film adheres to the conventions of romantic melodramas, its fascinations from a cultural perspective remain strong throughout.

Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com, 2016-08-05

 

Though too slight to be memorable, the gay romance "Front Cover" takes a gentle, thoughtful look at the intersection of ethnicity and sexuality.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2016-08-04
