Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For anyone who ever took drama in High School, Coogan's character will surely ignite memories of quirky, even downright crazy teachers you may have encountered over the years."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"[A] dazzling little comedy."
‑ Philip Kennicott, Washington Post
"High school theater spoof lacks some spark."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Moments of demented inspiration as the ridiculously catchy ditty 'Rock Me Sexy Jesus' are few and far between."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Coogan is a master at playing jerks, but Dana is too silly, too stupid, and too unappealing to enlist us on his side."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"The funniest Shakespearean sequel since Richard IV."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Not since Death of a Salesman has failure been quite so entertaining."
‑ Joanne Kaufman, Wall Street Journal
"Some of it doesn't work at all, but much of it is both sharply astute and hysterically funny"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"That sound you hear is Shakespeare spinning in his grave after watching Hamlet 2 from the Great Beyond."
‑ Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?
"i pio anatreptiki komodia poy ehei ksepidisei ap' to aneksartito kykloma ta teleytaia hronia"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"A high school musical that would make John Waters proud."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Bafflingly, this poorly executed, undercooked comedy was the big winner at Sundance this year."
‑ Hank Sartin, Time Out New York
"I haven't laughed so hard in years. Coogan is pure brilliance..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Buoyed by Steve Coogan's unapologetically go-for-broke performance..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Oddly, what's supposed to be a great comedy about a bad play is in fact a bad comedy about a play that looks pretty frigging amazing"
‑ Amy Nicholson, I.E. Weekly
