Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Attempts to pay homage to the '80s oeuvre of filmmaker John Hughes, but its singular lack of emotional logic, charm and humor bring to mind a couple of hours in detention instead. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Sep 15, 2011

Rotten: This is thoroughly a family affair, but with the Polish brothers' upcoming film Manure just around the corner, Stay Cool feels a bit rushed, suggesting nothing more than an homage to Pretty in Pink or Some Kind of Wonderful. – Adam Keleman, Slant Magazine, Mar 5, 2015

Worth Watching @ < $3

There's more to this film on a 2nd viewing and it reminds me of a friend retelling me some story about high school. Nothing really unusual or really funny happens but I'm interested in my friend anyway.

When Shasta first appears on the screen, if this was the movie Pleasantville, the film print would go from black & white to color each time Shasta appears.

Shasta does not appear often enough!

If the movie had pivoted around her character, I think we would have benefited from her natural, comedic charm and she'd have more room to express her seduction.

The same might even apply to Winona Ryder's character which even though she's the ultimate object of affection, deserved more screen time.
