“..with a screenplay lacking the freshness and credibility of Foner's best work, this all-around misfire saddles a miscast group of name thesps (including Foner's son-in-law Peter Sarsgaard) with some strikingly awful costume design..”
by Alissa Simon [Variety]
“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
“..the drama feels more like the stuff of a mild - and dated - YA novel than an involving exploration of female experience..”
by Sheri Linden [Los Angeles Times]
“..in more ways than one, "Very Good Girls" is a family affair..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
1 of 4

“..a drama that feels like an old person's idea of what young people are like..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
