- "Elizabeth McGovern, scuffing up her goody-goody Downton Abbey image, is surprisingly touching and funny as a blousy, white-wigged swinging sensei.... "
- "The film [is] sleek, funny, and honest about life’s discomforts. Anaya is so warm and attractive that you can almost forgive her character’s weirdly 1970s habit of calling her partner ‘Daddio’; and Elizabeth McGovern of Downton Abbey fame has a winning supporting role as a surprisingly sensitive orgy queen."
- "Although Swung is explicit in its nature and its content – to a lesser degree than might be expected, however – it’s neither smutty, depraved nor gratuitous and is anchored around an admirably acted and believable central pairing. "
