Movie Reviews

  • while plot-wise it's a little slender, not to mention heavy on studied eccentricities, Jordan Vogt-Roberts' debut feature also has a generous share of rewards
    by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the movie's raw materials feel just rough-hewn enough to draw us in
    3 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • The Kings of Summer sails right down the middle, safely tacking between sitcom setups and grandiose MGMT-scored montages without forming its own distinctive feel
    2 of 5 by Eric Hynes [Time Out New York ]
  • The best way to enjoy "The Kings of Summer" is to view it as a likable comic fantasy dreamed up by filmmakers who are close enough to adolescence to infuse their ramshackle story with a youthful, carefree whimsy
    3 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • it is acidly funny
    3.5 of 4 by Sean P. Means [Salt Lake Tribune ]
  • fourteen is a tricky age to convey, but director Jordan Vogt-Roberts and writer Chris Galletta nail it, with wonderful absurdist humor
    3.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
