Directed by Joe Nussbaum, Sleepover revolves around one of the hallmarks of female friendship: the all-important slumber party. In hopes of shedding their not-so-cool reputations during the summer before their freshman year, best friends Julie (Alexa Vega), Hannah (Mika Boorem), Yancy (Kalli Flynn Childress), and Farrah (Scout Taylor-Compton) decide to host the sleepover of their lives. Far from a mere pillow-fight-laden girl talk-fest, this sleepover includes an intense scavenger hunt against the most simultaneously loathed and envied young women they know: the infamous "popular"… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nussbaum's attempt to capture the 'tween zeitgeist fails: The Spice Girls-infused soundtrack is dated, and the feel-good progressiveness forced."
‑ Kris Wilton, Village Voice
"Just when the big screen could use an injection of frothy, giggly girl power -- all in the name of a covert feminist message, of course -- Sleepover squanders that promise with a blah story and even bigger bummer of a take-home message."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"How many 14-year-old girls do you know who would set up a blind date with a grown-up over the Internet? (Yeah, I found this creepy too.)"
‑ Uri Lessing,
"Thanks to a few wacky set pieces, it's not quite as excruciating as it could have been."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"...Sleepover" will have you snoring in no time."
‑ Tony Toscano, Talking Pictures (U.S.)
"A terrible film."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Fairly standard tween-oriented fare."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Approaching Sleepover with any sort of sensitivity or intelligence is an act of extreme masochism."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Generation X-ers continue to feel superior about their teen films...adding intelligence & darkness can make a generic teen romp into a rewatchable touchstone. Not Sleepover."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"'This is excruciating,' Stacie tells Liz, which could be said about all of this charmless comedy."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Not overwhelmingly original or funny."
‑ Sara Gebhardt, Washington Post
"Not for younger kids, despite its PG rating."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"There's not a scene that doesn't feel as if we've been there before."
‑ Anthony Del Valle, Las Vegas Mercury
"Suffers from heavy-handedness, obvious plotting, and a basic dearth of wit."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A less-than-average take on teen life that's been done better. This year, in fact."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
