Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Late-night cable, here it comes!"
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"Late-night Cinemax fare inexplicably granted a theatrical release."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"Dark and twisted, with sexually suggestive undercurrents, this one's as safe to miss as a sunburn by the club poolside."
‑ Katherine Dillin, Christian Science Monitor
"The In Crowd's deep, dark secret? That it, too, is just a mediocre movie-of-the-week in feature-film clothing."
‑ James Keith La Croix, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"...if you're a fan of cat fights, you'll have it made in the shade."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Brittany is so obviously wicked, from the first glimpse we get of her, that there's nowhere for Ward to take her, except over the top."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"The In Crowd isn't a movie, it's Gorgonzola, a crumbly summertime stinker veined with pop-cultural fungus."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The movie is billed as an erotic thriller, but it's not very erotic, nor is it really all that thrilling. It's just there, a languid, workmanlike time-waster that's the multiplex equivalent of sitting around the country club pool and working on your tan."
‑ Dennis King, Tulsa World
"Stone the crows! Or is that flog the dead horse? Either way, this is cobblers."
‑ Mark Dinning, Empire Magazine
"Somebody wrote this, directed this, and wrote out checks for the actors. They all have family somewhere proudly boasting that their child makes movies in Hollywood."
‑ Jim Shelby, Palo Alto Weekly
"The press release makes a "special request" to not reveal the ending. They didn't need to worry. Anyone over PG-13 age is going to know exactly where this movie is going long before it gets there."
‑ Vicky Edwards, Chicago Tribune
"A country-club member takes a club employee under her wing in this cagey formula thriller that exploits homosexuality better than murder-mystery clues."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"The acting is universally abysmal, although so are all the lines of dialogue. So I can't entirely blame the cast members."
‑ Bruce Kirkland, Jam! Movies
"The In Crowd isn't a movie--it's a J. Crew catalogue. Junk mail, junk movie."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"This is the stuff of good, clean, campy fun. But instead of titillating, The In Crowd is nothing but a deadly dull business."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
