Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has a straight faced camp about itself that makes it a blast from the past worth sitting through"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A memorable movie with some fine performances"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Em seu esforço risível para criar um ícone de independência, rebeldia e juventude, o filme soa apenas incrivelmente absurdo, artificial e patético, mesmo que Helen Slater seja uma protagonista obviamente sedutora."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Strident, borderline campy drama, complete with a raging Pat Benatar theme song"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Above average teen melodrama"
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"This far-fetched movie munches on the mythology of heroism but is too manipulative and shallow to be taken seriously."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
