Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A retread of every lousy '80s high school comedy you never bothered watching."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A modest but likeable spin on Groundhog Day."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"The rare teen comedy with serious raunch and heart, Premature is much, much better than any movie about ejaculation-triggered time travel has any right to be."
‑ Isaac Feldberg, We Got This Covered
"Even with all its shortcomings, that there's a film out there that uses masturbation as a time travel device is something to celebrate."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"Premature hits all the bases, but doesn't knock it out of the park."
‑ James Renovitch, Austin Chronicle
"Only undiscriminating audiences with a pronounced taste for crotch-centric tomfoolery will sample this goulash ..."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Mr. Beers and his fellow screenwriter, Mathew Harawitz, also have a numbing Seth MacFarlane-esque weakness for purely attention-getting crudeness and unfunny stereotypes."
‑ Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
"I remember laughing, but I don't remember why. It's a little like being stuck in time."
‑ Daniel Carlson, Movie Mezzanine
"It's not overbearing, nor is it explosively good."
‑ Kyle Turner, Under the Radar
"[T]he dim comedy Premature owes a debt to the looping time structure of Groundhog Day, but it owes more to those inglorious sex teases of the '80s, when wet dreams became waking nightmares."
‑ Scott Tobias, The Dissolve
"So now we're stuck with a main character we know is an unrepentant sex offender, basically. Dumb!"
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"While it's fun to imagine what John Waters might have done with that in the 1970s, Beers and Harawitz run dry (so to speak) very quickly, forcing them to return to their stockpile of mirthless lowbrow gags."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"The result isn't very inspired as it clumsily mixes sophomoric gags with a more genuine satire of high-school social life, with the obligatory teachers who are dumber than the kids."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"Beers' giddy feature embraces the sophomoric tradition of "Porky's"-era horny male humor with a warm, consistently funny attitude, like a scrappier version of "American Pie.""
‑ Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"This really is how Groundhog Day would go if Bill Murray was a high schooler."
‑ Fred Topel, CraveOnline
