“..until it flies off the rails in a third act so devoid of logic it could have been concocted on the moon..”
by Gary Goldstein [Los Angeles Times]
1.5 of 4

“..there’s a fair amount of greening, but that doesn’t make Whitney any less grating..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..the film, both in scope and tone, has a downsized vibe that would have made it a much better fit on an ABC Family than in a movie theater..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
“..its shiny confidence in the entertainment value of blaring soundtrack cues..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..it's all extraordinarily predictable, made no more palatable by flat characters and a dull cast..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..has few pretensions to depth, ambiguity or realism, relying on its name cast..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]
“..Gail Gilchriest's airheaded script grafts "Cinderella" to "My Super Sweet 16" with a grating lack of originality..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..by turns pleasant and preposterous..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
