Movie Reviews

  • there's just too much of everything-snarkily translated texts, meta commentary, Scream jokes-to come together as a cohesive narrative
    2 of 5 by Sandie Angulo Chen [Common Sense Media ]
  • there are also plenty of sex jokes, vomit and exploding heads. It's not all highbrow
    5 of 5 by Fred Topel [Crave Online ]
  • the film offers a nonstop assault of stimulation - it's hard to imagine anyone would notice the distraction
    by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • that description implies a fuller sense of reality than can be found in this self-financed film's fractured matrix
    by Nicolas Rapold [New York Times ]
  • sort of like The Breakfast Club meets Donnie Darko, except without a hint of subtlety
    2.5 of 4 by Michael C. Walsh [Boston Phoenix ]
  • packing the movie with an endless supply of '80s and '90s jokes
    3 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • it all comes back to a detention class where teen stereotypes are celebrated and slaughtered, often simultaneously and always snarkily
    1 of 4 by John Hartl [Seattle Times ]
  • have imaginative editing and a stylish, candy-colored look-that is, so long as no one's vomiting
    1.5 of 4 by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post ]
  • for 20 minutes, i's one of the worst movies I've ever seen
    2.5 of 4 by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • exhausting before its first few minutes of whip-pans, smash cuts, coarsely self-referential jokes and on-screen text visuals is over
    1.5 of 5 by Robert Abele [Los Angeles Times ]
  • combines the bravura mash-up showmanship and Wikipedic '90s pop-culture savvy of a Girl Talk album with the frivolous
    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]
  • certainly lacks focus, eccentrically digresses wildly and should have edited out some out-there evolutions
    4 of 5 by Adam Fendelman [ ]
