“..you're supposed to make one movie for you and one for them - not everything for them..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..transgressive humor isn't nearly as offensive as the phony sentiment that's supposed to redeem it..”
by J. R. Jones [Chicago Reader]
Review rate : D

“..to feature this stuff with teens or adults in the cast, but having a 9-year-old girl along for the ride is especially noxious..”
by Peter Rainer [Christian Science Monitor]
“..this movie, considerably funnier than director Green's last..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]

by Andrew Lapin [NPR]
