Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Baby-Sitters Club is like an average installment of the series, aimed at girls who can't get enough of their fictional friends in any form."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"Were there not 125 million of Ann M. Martin's Club books currently in print, this cinematically destitute movie might have gone directly to video."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"A girlfriends story with a great message."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"A beautiful film that possesses the power to enchant all ages."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"A colorful, buoyant, loving tribute to the notion of girlfriends forever."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"Salutes the virtues of friendship."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"85 minutes doesn't provide an adequate format for developing seven distinct characters."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"Fans and would-be fans of Ann M. Martin's books may be enthralled, but, for the rest of us, The Baby-Sitters Club is something of an endurance contest."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The Baby-Sitters Club has a youthful buoyancy and whimsical rhythm that catches even the most jaundiced (i.e., 16-year-old) viewers up in its play of light and energy."
‑ Hollis Chacona, Austin Chronicle
