Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"These girls are brilliantly un-victimy and always come out fighting. If only they weren't incessantly paraded about in their underwear for the viewing pleasure of men."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"There's something a bit off about the whole film for me. It just wasn't making it. It was chaotic without being very illuminating."
‑ David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia)
"Clarke does all he can to grab your attention but then you learn he has nothing worth saying. A big disappointment."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"It brings me no joy to say it, but Clarke's filmmaking is like a narcissistic strut from someone who needs to brush up on walking."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"I admire the ambition. Unfortunately, it's the execution that fails here."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A complete absence of wit and some truly terrible writing and acting makes for one bluntly bad movie."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia)
"This is pretty much a girl power movie, Tarantino style, with jump cuts, fast cuts, split screens and a lot of lip. And for the most part it's fun."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"4.3.2.1. is shrill, histrionic and a little bit naff when it could have been cool, hip and exciting."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"The dialogue's clunky and the ludicrous plot is full of holes. It's a great relief when real talent like Ben Miller appear -- but he's only in it for a couple of minutes."
‑ Roz Laws, Birmingham Post
"The plotting is clumsy, the characterisation scraggy and the dialogue clunky- but you can't accuse Clarke of lacking ambition, even if his film does display a yawning gulf between aspiration and accomplishment."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"I regret to say I enjoyed nearly every minute."
‑ Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
"Like most of those movies that purport to tell it like it is for the fashionably chic young, the result is as cheesy and sentimental as it pretends to be streetwise."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"The multithreads, a la Pulp Fiction, weave and collide, but it's all too linear, too telegraphed, its influences too obvious, its edges sanded down by compromise."
‑ Tom Seymour, Little White Lies
"Paragraph after paragraph can be spent dissecting the flaws, the portrayal of men as either evil or nerdish, and the cringeworthy decision to make the lead actresses all strip down to their skimpies at various stages of the movie."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
