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.
Fresh: Its romance regarding the significance of teen experience might not work on everyone, but its earnestness, wit and stirring music ought to leave few hearts wholly untouched.
Fresh: Miller and Watson are in their element here, helping to shore up Chbosky's sophomore effort, which is likely to offer a pivotal moment in time for its leads.
Rotten: Seek out the infinitely superior The Myth of the American Sleepover for an original and moving take on similar material.
My favorite book became my favorite 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.
This is a great movie in so many ways. You can really connect with the characters. It's a great movie overall.
