Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Skillful, tight editing reveals the volatile patterns of behavior, shifting suddenly from fights to confessions, dancing to despair, yet in the end the girls are always fiercely supportive of each other."
‑ Jay Weissberg, Variety
"Fun precisely because it allows its characters to have theirs."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"You can't make a movie about the Boogey Man without showing him at least once."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"What could have been a rather nasty dark comedy is a wildly funny satire on the art of seduction."
‑ Louis B. Hobson, Jam! Movies
"A rousing documentary on the street children of Cairo, These Girls is an agonizing and uplifting depiction of street survival at its most daunting."
‑ Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
"This summer-fling comedy turns out to be as generic as its title suggests."
‑ Ken Eisner, Variety
"Director John Hazlett imbues the film with all the style of a movie-of-the-week, something that's reflected in the routine, predictable storyline."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A surprisingly likeable, albeit morally ambivalent little film."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"Can a yarn without credibility, can a comedy without laughs, can characters without a centre, can direction without discernment, add up to a movie?"
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Director Tahani Rached's documentary These Girls exudes empathy and respect for its destitute Egyptian teenage subjects' plight."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"It has similar observational humour toward young life as past Canadian productions My American Cousin and New Waterford Girl."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
