Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There are some entertaining and moving scenes here, but, overall, it's a bit softhearted for my taste.
Fresh: Liberal Arts maneuvers its story in a philosophical way that is anything but detached. There's a warmth here that reminds audiences why college -- and, dare we say, their core curriculums? -- matter.
Fresh: Poetic justice Is served in insightful LIBERAL ARTS
Fresh: Liberal Arts is a resolutely vanilla-flavored concoction but still pleasant, amiable, and a little more thoughtful than your average rom-com.
Finally I found it - the worst movie of 2012…. SLOW … Really slow…
down and out in college
The student roles in this movie are well defined and very well played by Olsen, Efron, and John Magaro. The adults in the movie are generally non-descript--save for the always great Allison Janney--with incomplete plot arcs.
Overall, the movie is a enjoyable take on the college experience from both sides of the lectern/diploma, and that the view from either side is quite different.
Mock on, mock on, etc.
I found this little film to be intelligent, literate, and quite a nice surprise. At first, I was certain I knew where the film's plot line was headed, but soon discovered that the screenplay was not trying to be "typical" in the way it approached the subject matter. The result was highly entertaining. The performances by the main characters were convincing and genuine and the movie's end left me smiling.
