Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Irresponsible content notwithstanding, it's the low standard of filmmaking that really defies belief."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Not for the faint of heart, the movie is unsettling and startlingly true to life."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Mixes youthful angst and hilarious hijinks in a way you'd expect from the creator of Freaks and Geeks."
‑ Alonso Duralde, Movieline
"Predigested drivel."
‑ Kam Williams, EURWeb
"Designed only for the youngest of children, who might be roused by the silly action, or perhaps for John Hughes, who might delight in the fact that his influence continues to color the landscape."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"Most Saturday morning cartoons are more realistic, and actually funnier."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Unaccompanied Minors may not be the worst holiday comedy ever made, but frankly I can't think of something from that genre that sinks lower than this frighteningly bad movie."
‑ Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
"There are fragments of good comedy packed amidst the many forgettable scenes that you've seen a dozen times before in a dozen other forgettable comedies"
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"The kids in the film behave badly. The adults behave worse."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Feig's sympathies toward young misfits are still thankfully evident, but the mature, realistic approach that made 'Freaks and Geeks' so refreshing is missing here."
‑ Dan Lybarger, eFilmCritic.com
"Unaccompanied Minors is packed with talent in front of and behind the camera, which makes its bland mediocrity even more unforgivable."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"If you really must find something to distract your children from Christmas shopping and material yearning, this one gets top recommendation for happily occupying 90 minutes at the mall."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Why, and at what point, did Feig choose to ally himself with the bullies of the world and substitute broad stereotype for insight into character?"
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Unexpectedly warm and huggable, and far funnier than you'd ever guess... one of the wittiest, most endearing holiday films in recent memory."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
"It's clear very early on that Warner Bros. wanted less a thoughtful film about divorce or coming of age than a chipper family pick-me-up. And thus we have Unaccompanied Minors, which is one-third heart and two-thirds cheese."
‑ Steven Snyder, Zertinet Movies
