“..there's something charming here-Ping Pong Summer itself feels like an underdog-and there are retro touches that children of the '80s will smile at (remember smelling the liner notes of cassettes?). But ultimately, those are too few and far between..”
by Carla Sosenko [Time Out New York]

“..it's clumsy and bumbling but disarmingly sweet in spirit..”
by Soren Anderson [Seattle Times]

“..here is the rare film that both celebrates an era and feels like it could have been made in it..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]

“..as a nostalgia piece redolent of '80s-era pop culture, "Ping Pong Summer" works better as an affectionate touchstone than fully realized movie..”
by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post]

“.."Ping Pong Summer'' certainly nails the era, right down to a lengthy pan across a none-too-appealing dinner buffet..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
