Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The premise sounds like a playpen for vulgarity but Michael Lucas's script is smarter than that."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Performances are impressive - particularly Snook, who seems destined for greatness - with screenwriter Michael Lucas serving a suitably gentle helping of humour throughout."
‑ Ed Gibbs, The Sun Herald
"The writers have tried too hard to fit these likeable characters into this strange, drawn-out premise."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"This smart, soulful and surprisingly darkly-hued comedy throws up a handful of interesting questions about personal responsibility."
‑ Erin Free, FILMINK (Australia)
"The more open-minded viewer...will enjoy a warm, funny, contemporary comedy-drama that will serve the director and, in particular, leading lady Sarah Snook very well."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"A film with great characters, laughs and earned emotion, Not Suitable isn't a revolutionary film, but it does what most of its romantic ilk doesn't: it actually works."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
"Breaking down some stereotypes and making you think about a common issue in an uncommon way, this is a smart little flick, with some top acting and fine humour to boot."
‑ Tim Martain, The Mercury
"Despite some contrived plot points (the convenient pay-to-get-in house parties, for one), Not Suitable for Children is more than suitable because it doesn't treat viewers like children."
‑ Adam Bub, MovieFIX
"This is the genre that has made Judd Apatow a 'brand' filmmaker, a contemporary love story with hard edges and patches of vulgar, lowbrow fun. The comparison is meant as a compliment"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"The film benefits greatly from taking characters and stories down paths you don't expect, but unfortunately this is also the films biggest flaw."
‑ Josh Forward, Trespass
"A heartily welcome sex comedy with a few sneaky surprises."
‑ Alice Tynan, Limelight
"Wonderfully bright, smart, honest look at kidulthood...This energetic and extremely well-acted film manages to avoid the cliches that beset most manch-coms."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"What lifts this Australian romantic-comedy above the level of most of its Hollywood counterparts is the reality of the characters and the situations and the honesty of the film's approach."
‑ David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia)
"It's an assured and promising first picture from this writer and director, but if Not Suitable for Children is to be remembered for anything it'll be as the movie that introduced us to Sarah Snook."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"With its unlikeable characters and comedy that is awkward at best, Not Suitable for Children does little for the modern secular family cause."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
