Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Focusing on the lack of women in technology, CodeGirl seeks to make a difference by offering a positive representation of entrepreneurial girls excelling in the field.
Rotten: However polished the doc's tech and score, it simply doesn't find drama in this familiar template.
Rotten: The documentary grows to feel like a parent describing their daughter's involvement in an international competition. The girls' achievements are impressive, but you definitely don't want to hear about them for nearly two hours.
