Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It may be a cheesy lark, but life bubbles through the cheese."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Although it's all but forgotten before the fade-out, you don't rush to turn it off, either."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"Undiscovered has about as much emotional depth and romantic sensibility as an episode of a Simpson sister MTV reality show."
‑ Clare Pfeiffer Ramsey, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"How bad is it? Ashlee Simpson has a supporting role in it and her singing isn't the worst thing about it."
‑ Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com
"It's all very tacky, overheated and derivative, like Los Angeles itself."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"It isn't bad enough to be good."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"An enjoyably cheesy teen melodrama with a touch of indie edge."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"There is not a single moment in the undistinguished Undiscovered that will do for [Pell] James what those couple of compassionate, moving minutes do in Jim Jarmusch's [Broken Flowers]."
‑ Christopher Borrelli, Toledo Blade
"Undiscovered is a lifeless affair, as disinterested in its own characters as moviegoers are likely to be."
‑ Gary Dowell, Baltimore City Paper
"This thing makes Glitter look like gold."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"Undiscovered feels more like a pilot for a glossy nighttime soap on Fox -- probably one that would be canceled midseason -- than a feature film with even a modicum of discernible originality or depth."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Director Meiert Avis is a veteran helmer of music videos, so while it is not entirely surprising that he has no feel for character or structure, it is strange that he doesn't breathe much life into the frequent musical performances and montages either."
‑ Mark Olsen, L.A. Weekly
"Prolific music-video director Meiert Avis is making his feature film directorial debut with Undiscovered -- and his obvious greenness shows."
‑ Brian Marder, Hollywood.com
"Some movies just deserve to be tucked away into obscurity. This is one of those movies."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Undiscovered would like to think of itself as a gritty, documentary-style indie about hopefuls on the fringes of the industry, but it's more like one of those lame hair-metal bands that went out and bought flannel shirts after Nirvana hit it big."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
