C.R.A.Z.Y. reviewed in Variety

The whole family can feel comfortable watching "C.R.A.Z.Y.," Jean-Marc Vallee's bouncy coming-of-age tale that coasts along on a terrific soundtrack and a spot-on feel for period detail. Story of a tight-knit Catholic family and their sexually confused son never goes near anything that might make mainstream auds uncomfortable, sticking with an old-fashioned tone balanced by inventive lensing that gives only the illusion of dipping its toe in risky waters. Local bizbiz has been boffoboffo, a good indication of high B.O.B.O. potential across the board -- sales at Venice were said to be brisk.
