Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Everything you've ever hated about American teenagers, their music, money, fashion sense, their values, and most of all their pin-ups, in one auto-destructive movie."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"About all that's worth noting is that the Caddy gets demolished and that the stars remain intact (though practically everyone will wish that it were the other way around)."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"One of the best teen comedies ever absolute blast!"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
"I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I liked this movie. The Coreys were actually funny in this one."
‑ Bob Grimm, Las Vegas Mercury
"Anyone old enough to have a license is probably much too old to be amused by License to Drive."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"Although the premise of getting or not getting a first driver's license is a solid-enough base for 90 minutes of teenage comedy, License To Drive misses the point on all counts."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's got the two Coreys...need I say more?"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Up until about the halfway mark of this movie, I was having a very good time. Then, somehow, it ran out of energy."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
" a breezy, mindless little comedy, License to Drive undoubtedly fits the bill."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's the two Coreys at the height of their popularity; make sure your children avert their eyes... by gouging them out if necessary."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
