Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What makes High School Confidential a spectacularly unconvincing anti-marijuana manifesto also makes it a consistently amusing, eminently re-watchable camp comedy."
‑ Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve
"Hot stuff in '58, but period sleaze is nostalgic fun now."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"As astringent a vision of the late-'50s as Frank Tashlin's are opulent"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Hilariously broad exploitation stuff."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"A most ridiculous classic cult teen-exploitation film about juvenile delinquents in the 1950s, but not without being entertaining."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
