Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There are a lot of odious movies yet to come in 2014, no doubt, but they'll have to work to beat "Back in the Day" for awfulness.
Rotten: Cloying and smug when it's not being unfunny and crass, the high school reunion comedy "Back in the Day" hits lows with a frequency that suggests a world-class sharp shooter or free-throw king.
Rotten: Good for a couple of fart jokes and otherwise utterly forgettable.
Rotten: [A] stale, schmaltzy and testosterone-drenched comedy.
Witty, funny and you will laugh hard!
Witty, funny and you will laugh hard! Every high school across the land had/has this motley crew of characters and Back in the Day will become a cult classic. The hilarious writing in the movie delivers all the way through.
All dudes who grew up in the 80's should watch this trip down memory lane.
Rosenbaum and cast captured the essence of the time period while making the scenes through-out the movie absolutely comical.
I rented the movie when it first came out but now have purchased it. Caveat: the adult scenes are not over the top but may make your mom blush (but this is good!).
This movie is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!
I preordered it a few days ago, but didn't want to wait til the 17th to see it so I rented it. Hilarious movie! Very well-written and acted. Great job to all the cast and crew.
