Consensus: This black comedy wavers between sleaze and satire, without ever fully committing to either.

Colin Covert
Minneapolis Star Tribune

A lethal joyride through the debauched lifestyles of L.A.'s glamour-industry elite.

Kyle Smith
New York Post

Surrounded by all these pros, Reed more than holds her own: She has so much integrity about being amoral that she keeps the audience dangling between disgust and admiration.

It doesn't help that first-time screenwriter/director Nick Guthe created such a superficial group of characters. Few, if any, seem believable or are interesting enough to care about.

Mini's First Time is delectably vulgar for 20 minutes or so, almost too bad to be true, but it soon loses its cheap-thrills appeal.

Jack Mathews
New York Daily News

Mini has a cleverly devious wrap-around ending, but you have been warned: It's twisted.

The characters in Mini are played by fine performers (Alec Baldwin, Jeff Goldblum, Carrie-Anne Moss), but they're still one-note.

Mini's First Time is not about taking an honest look at adolescence. It's not even really about teens, or high-school life, or upper-class marriages. What it's about is an unpleasantly pervy adult male view of teenage girls.

Los Angeles Times

The swirl of bad girl shenanigans, Hollywood satire and noir-ish melodrama in Mini's First Time that was intended to make for an icy cocktail of prurience and moral insight tastes more like freezer burn instead.

The Cinema Source

Mini's First Time is a down-and-dirty exercise in depravity and debauchery; in other words, just the kind of plot that gets us to turn off the TV and head for the multiplex -- blue states and red states alike.

Very dark little story - I didn't expect too much from it, so I was pleasantly surprised. The plot is a little silly - a young teenage girl (Nikki Reed)… More

This movie is extremely twisted. Normally I like this type of movie, but this one was just bad. Lots of good actors, but it fell short somewhere.
