Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®
" Better than it has any right to be. "
" Filmmaker Josh Stolberg claims to have been inspired by real-life events, but mostly he ineptly rips off other movies and wastes a cast that includes Rosanna Arquette, Adam Arkin and Elizabeth Perkins. "
" A comedy so inane and tedious that it buries its premise and its various worthy points under too many arch and improbable shenanigans and endless dialogue, much of it seriously under-inspired. "
" Josh Stolberg's mild-mannered satire imagines that teenage rebellion in the Bush era has gone soft. "
" Would be easier to root for if it weren't so very pleased with itself. "
" A feeble call to arms, and inept entertainment to boot. "
" What a wasted opportunity. "
" An anti-Bush, pro-First Amendment, completely ridiculous fight-the-power comedy that happens to have been inspired by actual events. "
" A trite teen comedy burdened with lofty aspirations of rallying adolescent audiences to political action. "
" Proceeds to rip off every teen flick from Heathers to Napoleon Dynamite. "
" The movie delivers little more than fast reflex laughs. "
" Short on real teenage angst and emotion, the film is long on caricatures. "
" You get the exhausting feeling that Stolberg is desperately trying to prove how cool he is. "
" Well-meaning but woefully unconvincing. "
" While a title card at the beginning of the picture says the story is inspired by true events, it really should read, 'Inspired by another film.' "
" You know all those 'brainless high school comedies'? Here's what one would look like if it had brains. "
" This indie teen movie is like a cafeteria lunch tray: lots of little compartments, with nothing particularly appetizing in any of them. "
