“In addition to nailing Holly’s look, Ambler lets a hint of Texas twang peek around the edges of his lines, and he does an excellent job communicating a wide range of emotions”
- Gary Zeidner, Boulder Weekly

“When Buddy (Brett Ambler) first appears, he’s young, naive, and frankly, musically embryonic. When Ambler finally takes the stage at the 'Winter Dance Party', he has matured into a full-fledged, confident, premiere performer… Ambler is a spitting image of Buddy, and his vocals are often indistinguishable from the original. What Ambler adds is an unexpected wink and a smile, giving Buddy a human side that we never really knew. Ambler is convincing as a capable business guy, and as an artist who values his music more than his fame. Where he shines, though, is when he meets his future wife, Maria Elena (Sarah Grover). It’s love at first sight. Ambler turns on the charm and sweeps her off her feet. Ambler does this despite being a geeky, bespectacled oddity, and he does it as if he doesn’t realize that he’s got some baggage. Come to think of it, Ambler does the same thing to the audience. He wins us over despite his lack of a Rock Star appearance and demeanor”
