Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Suitable entertainment for boys too young to shave."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The worst movie of the summer."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Pretty much a complete waste of time."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"It's the sort of movie that makes American Wedding look... subtle by comparison. [T]his summer's notorious bomb Gigli is starting to look better and better."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
"Director La Scala can't direct his way out of this can of half-baked beans."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"Brody and Vogel anchor the cast, portraying likeable, charismatic dudes with a friendship that is genuine and enduring in spite of their differences."
‑ Daphne Gordon, Toronto Star
"Without the charm or irrepressible imagination of the Farrellys or 'American Pie' writer Adam Herz, the filmmakers succeeds only in making their protagonists look like jerks, who well deserve the misfortunes that befall them right up to a happy fadeout."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Cinematic fecal matter at its best."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"First-time director Casey La Scala may have taken his fledgling film's title too literally, grinding together borrowed ingredients like a mischievous chef."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
"You've seen and heard it before, dude."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"Among those rare films that starts at the bottom and burrows downward."
‑ Bob Campbell, Newark Star-Ledger
"A logo-laden celebration of the joys of sponsorship wrapped inside an innocuous teen-pic package."
‑ Ed Halter, Village Voice
"If you love skateboarding, feel free to rent Grind, hit the mute button and fast forward through anything that doesn't involve a half-pipe."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Brings Out The Worst Of A Fringe Sport That Fights For Mainstream Acceptance...this Film Fails So Completely In Almost Every Aspect."
‑ Michael Drakulich, Star Newspapers (Chicago, IL)
"Viewing the earthbound sequences in "Grind" is like watching the dialogue portions of pornos. Pity the viewers who catch this one without the benefit of a fast-forward or chapter select button."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Kansas City Star
