Critic Reviews

Liked
Plenty of credit is due to Barbara Curry’s deranged script, set in a suburban fantasyland of doofus bullies, junior proms, and middle-class sex fears; it probably isn’t meant to be a Verhoeven satire, but it sure moves like one.
— Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (The A.V. Club)
Didn't Like
The film’s initial formulaic competence gives way to outright preposterousness rather quickly, hinging on idiot-plot character motivations.
— Andrew Barker (Variety)
