Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Is Morgan Freeman the greatest American actor?"
‑ Pauline Kael, New Yorker
"A clever thriller with a lot of unbelievable scenes and a sappy ending, but two wonderful performances."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Freeman is remarkable."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"Street Smart winds up being a bit too smart for its own good, but it's compelling and complex."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"There's something about seedy undersides that brings out the best (or at least the personal) in director Jerry Schatzberg ... though his Elia Kazan social consciousness could use a little toning down."
‑ Pat Graham, Chicago Reader
"Justified by Freeman's amazing performance"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"Schatzberg's major problems are lethargic pacing and a strained plot."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"...the movie's still worth seeing, though, if only for Freeman's electrifying performance."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
