Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 3.7
San Francisco Chronicle -
Raises the bar for movies geared to teens.
Boston Globe -
The movie's enthusiasm is as indelible and shiny as the lip gloss its star wears to bed.
USA Today -
Actor John Corbett, so clean-cut in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and "Raising Helen," goes surprisingly scruffy here as someone who apparently studied music under Grizzly Adams.
Chicago Sun-Times -
Her dad was right about one thing. Something terrible did happen to her (Duff) in Los Angeles. She made this movie.
