Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The script, by Matt K. Turner, is loaded with contradictions, its hollow flirtation with subversion amount to airplane pablum. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Mar 28, 2013

Rotten: The kind of dark-for-dark's sake, wannabe quirkfest that proves indie films can be just as cliched and vapid as the most soulless Hollywood movies. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Mar 28, 2013

Rotten: The direction by Benjamin Epps, who has an early cameo as a jump-rope judge, shows decent comic timing, but needs to dial the histrionics way down and find a script that has some substance beneath the shenanigans. – Eddie Cockrell, Variety, Mar 27, 2013

Fresh: What keeps the film afloat is the buoyant young cast, with Rulin especially watchable as the tightly wound lead and Joey King as her younger sister, who's an aspiring actress. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Mar 28, 2013

Much better than I thought it would be the trailer does not do this movie justice. The last 20 minutes of this film was the best part I loved it

best movie!!

this movie was great everyone should watch this it is funny and sad sometimes

Hilarious & Light-hearted

From the music to the rhythms of the jump rope, this movie is hilarious from start to finish. Matthew Modine's Dad is as clueless as he is well-intentioned. Kristin Chenoweth and Olesya Rudin nail tightly-wound. And Adam Saunders steals the show, which is impressive, given how funny Joey King is!
