Reception[edit]

Get Along has received mixed reviews. Allie Conti of Paste stated that "Get Along has something to offer everyone, no matter where they lie on the spectrum of fandom",[2] while SheWired's Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim stated that "overall, the films were a bit of a disappointment. I wanted to learn more about them, and I didn't really feel like I did."[3] A review in Consequence of Sound criticised the repetitive nature of some of the included songs, but concluded that "...imperfections and the occasional lack of focus aside, Get Along is a thoughtful gift to (Tegan and Sara) fans, who will no doubt cherish it."[4]
