"After seeing Love & Mercy, you'll find it nearly impossible to resist the urge to down to download (or re-listen to) a dozen Beach Boys classic."- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"It's a loving tribute to the Beach Boy and the man responsible for their distinctive sound, but it goes to deeper and stranger places than most movies of its kind."- A.O. Scott, The New York Times
