  • Staff (not credited)

    Insubstantial, predictable and often dull, it's a dismaying move from director Allen Moyle, who displayed a real grasp of pulp energy in 1990's "Pump Up the Volume".

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    The film exists for its shots of telegenic youngsters busting loose to a bankable soundtrack, and it's the cheesy dialogue, overstuffed plot, and predictable character arcs that come across as superfluous.

  • Ty Burr

    The movie is too blatant a throwback to crass '80s teen fodder to really work.
