Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ably shot and well-performed and observed, Slumming, initially manifests an interesting and unsentimental impassivity and moral neutrality before succumbing to a more-or-less orthodox story of redemption through love. Impressive all the same."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"It has promise, but it is mostly unrealized. ... The story doesn't develop but just falls apart."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Darkness overshadows humor with characters that are either so overbearing or misanthropic that they destroy any enjoyment of its quirky nature."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"The rich toy with the poor and enjoy themselves, so what's new?"
‑ Boyd van Hoeij, european-films.net
"A provocative, finely crafted pic that becomes alarmingly disjointed in the last reels but casts enough of a spell."
‑ Eddie Cockrell, Variety
