Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ambles back and forth between tomfoolery and strained seriousness."
‑ Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader
"A smarmy little road movie about a Southern teenage girl losing her innocence the hard way during the Reagan era."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Derek Martini's second feature - after the competent Lymelife - is a confused mess of awkward tonal shifts and boring narrative tangents all encased in the discomforting shell of a Lolita fantasy."
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"And so it came to ChloŽ Grace Moretz, as it must to all child actors: puberty."
‑ Matt Singer, Time Out Chicago
"Director Derick Martini basically gives up on storytelling about 20 minutes into the feature, hoping a grubby atmosphere of creepy men and vulnerable women is enough to patch the abyssal holes in the plot."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"It contains some effective performances, it does a good job of evoking bereft and empty landscapes, but what is it for? Has she learned anything? Have we?"
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Mostly plays like some creepy-perv fantasia looking for mileage from the mature-beyond-her-years presence of young star ChloŽ Grace Moretz."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Just a notch above dismal. Even with the star power"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Recognizes that kids can't expect the grass to be greener but comes too close to suggesting that you can expect others to mow your lawn."
‑ Matt Pais, RedEye
"...shows that the era of the redneck road flick isn't over, but by God should be."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Film Journal International
"Hick wants to come across as trippy and offbeat but its bizarre, surreal approach is more off-putting than effective."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Forced irony or klutziness? Too often that's the question you ask of "Hick," which makes the answer all too clear."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"Hick is worth the effort -- and it does have some genuinely witty writing."
‑ Stephen Fitzpatrick, The Australian
"Though Hick promises danger, sex (or at least sexiness) and adventure, it delivers a dry tale lacking in real action or intensity."
‑ Shannon M. Houston, Paste Magazine
"Runaway teen faces violence, harsh reality in mature drama."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
