Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This self-styled self-reflexive comedy asks the question, just how stupid are teenagers?"
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"Their cool-to-be-cruel stance is too hip for the room and a likely turnoff for preteen girls who don't like fluff balls laced with bile."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Movie rates itself out of an ideal audience."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Scratch this one off your must-see list."
‑ ,
"Once again the nostalgia of our youth has been strip-mined for a Hollywood remake . . . At least this one doesn't have any CGI talking-dog monstrosities in it"
‑ Brian Mckay,
"This is one sharp pussycat."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"When on work release from the Von Trier festival, I like such cheap thrills."
‑ Jane Dark, Village Voice
"Ranks a 'one' next to Spinal Tap's '11'."
‑ , Film4
"Boasts a self-referential irreverence that gleefully attacks pop culture by using members of pop culture"
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"About as fresh and fun as week-old kitty litter."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"Aaaaah, what a classic!"
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"The concept is so hypocritical, it's like Britney Spears calling Christina Aguilera underdressed and overexposed."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"The sour notes are all in a dumbed-down script, canned-ham performances that soon wear thin."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"Alan Cumming (who's picked up where Richard E. Grant left off in Spice World) seems to be doing an impression of Stewie, the megalomaniacal baby on Family Guy."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The best praise I can offer is it could have been worse."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
