Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It may be a cheesy lark, but life bubbles through the cheese."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"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
"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
"Although it's all but forgotten before the fade-out, you don't rush to turn it off, either."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"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
"An enjoyably cheesy teen melodrama with a touch of indie edge."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"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
"A nice portrayal by Ashlee of a wanna-be rocker, in a music story in L.A. without drugs!"
‑ Michael Szymanski, Hollywood.com
