      Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.

Movie Reviews

  • what seemed charmingly provocative onstage falls thuddingly flat
    by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • has a focus problem that leaves its humorous moments obscured and its intentions hazy
    by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times ]
  • although the story, which feels a tad past its expiration date, never digs too deeply into its central issues (hypocrisy, loneliness, censorship, finding one's voice), Dan Harris' peppy direction and nimble turns by the film's young leads prevail
    by Gary Goldstein [LA Times ]
  • although the plot meanders wildly and the message of the film lacks focus, this is consistent with the character of its protagonists, convincingly muddled teenagers who are trying to find their voices at the same time as they're trying to make them heard
    2.5 of 5 by Jennie Kermode [Eye for Film ]
