    Reception

    Stephen Holden of The New York Times wrote that the film initially has the potential to be "an American neo-realist gem" but descends into melodrama. Leonard Klady of Variety wrote, "While director and co-writer Chris Kentis' debut feature is not distinctive visually or more than mildly intriguing dramatically, neither is it offensive or inept." Nathan Rabin of The A.V. Club wrote, "While Grind captures its blue-collar milieu with a certain amount of accuracy and conviction, it can't overcome its weak, predictable script and uneven performances." Kevin Thomas of The Los Angeles Times called it "a fine and involving accomplishment" that should launch the careers of all involved.
