Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Two of the screenwriters, Steve Zacharias and Jeff Buhai, also wrote Revenge of the Nerds, so it's not surprising that they're more interested in tame teen-age fantasies than in social satire."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"Johnny be worthless."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's bad, even by 80's standards."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"The people who made this movie should be ashamed of themselves."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Reflects the mentality of great swaths of artless, ignorant slobs."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"If Chuck Berry were dead, he'd be spinning in his grave."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"It's not funny, it tells a surface story and nothing more, and there's no sense of effort to correct any of these deficiencies."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
