Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This film's real trouble lies in its joyless, pointless execution. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Mar 9, 2009

Rotten: The movie stands as a textbook demonstration of why they don't -- and probably shouldn't -- make 'em like they used to. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, May 20, 2013

Rotten: The writers have created cardboard cutouts instead of flesh-and-blood characters. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: An old-fashioned musical that is better when its characters sing and dance than when they talk. – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, May 20, 2013

I Need Newsies. Let us buy it not just rent it. A lot of people would buy it. FACT!!"


The critics need to take a good look at themselves. Apparently their hearts are three sizes too small. This is one of the greatest movies ever, and I myself draw a LOT of inspiration from it and the soundtrack. Joyless, pointless execution? This movie is exactly the opposite!

Rent? I want to BUY!

This movie is SO good and I've been waiting for it to come out on that I can BUY it, not rent it.

I especially love Christian Bale in this movie. It was the first movie with him that I had seen and now he is one of my favorite actors and I absolutely adore him <3
