Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Regardless of the viewer's proximity to his or her own high school experience, "Perks" seems to get it right, precisely because it's not about a specific time or place. – John Anderson, Newsday, Oct 4, 2012

Fresh: "Like real teenagers, Watson and Miller convincingly move from glowing objects of desire to comic relief to deeply troubled human beings." – Violet Lucca, Film Comment Magazine, Jun 28, 2013

Fresh: While most films about teenage life tend to trade on a nifty hook, and sometimes even a plot, The Perks of Being a Wallflower chimes in as an unusually incisive, character-driven ramble through the inevitable awkwardness of teen life. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, Dec 7, 2012

Rotten: Something's missing in this film. It just feels constructed and flat. And I found the casting uninspired as well. – Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia), Nov 29, 2012

Fantastic Movie

This is a touching movie which really shows the way it is to be a teen. However, it is definitely a strong PG-13 -- not PG by any standards.

Rent?

A great movie, but why can't we rent it?!! I don't want to buy it, make it rentable!
