Reviews

Village Voice - Simon Abrams
Barely Lethal's combination of bawdy humor and earnest affection for its high-school-aged protagonists is surprisingly well-balanced.
60
The New York Times - Neil Genzlinger
This isn’t exactly “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”; it’s more like a film version of a TV series you could comfortably let your tweens watch.
60
Empire - Kim Newman
Hardly groundbreaking but this high-school actioner ghosts by on its charm and sense of fun.
50
Slant Magazine - Nick Prigge
The film settles into a time-honored groove of so many forgettable juvenile comedies before it.
50
Movie Nation - Roger Moore
A fairly amusing rough draft for a high concept high school romantic comedy.
