Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Under the circumstances, Anjelica Huston and Lukas Haas manage not to embarrass themselves, but only because they're pretending to be in a different movie."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"An incompetent spin on the poor-little-rich-girl story, the film involves a lot of wardrobe changes and product placements, and a smidgen of intrigue and some chaste romance."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Lessons about social responsibility are submerged in a bubble bath of innocent glamour; Amy Heckerling's Clueless looks like a mordant social satire by comparison."
‑ Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
"A brain-numbing, fluffy flick for tweens."
‑ Jane Boursaw, Common Sense Media
"Along the way, self-discovery bangs 'em over the head."
‑ Brian Marder,
"[It] isn't some light send-up of materialism. It's a light endorsement of it."
‑ Amelie Gillette, AV Club
"It succeeds on its own terms. These days, even pre teens live in a material world."
‑ Michael Hardy, Boston Globe
"Even Anjelica Huston as a rival cosmetics magnate struggles to inject any venom into the proceedings."
‑ John Ferguson, Radio Times
"An insipid mess not worthy of the tweens who flock to such flicks."
‑ Brooke Holgerson, Boston Phoenix
"The Duff sisters are pleasant personalities, but the vapid bimbosity of their characters quickly becomes grating."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"It's not Clueless, just clueless."
‑ Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly
"Even by the low standards of the genre it represents, this female teen comedy represents a new nadir."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Welcome to adulthood, Hillary and Haylie Duff. Here are your T-Mobile Sidekicks and Tabloid news stories. Leave your personalities at the door."
‑ Rafe Telsch,
"Fans of the Duffs finally have a film to look forward to while they're doing their nails and staring off into space."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Forced to endure such casually offensive nonsense, the viewer ends up slumming it far more than the duff protagonists."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
