How are girls supposed to behave in a culture that tells them they're Disney princesses for the first 12 years and sex toys after that? Girls Rock! has one answer: Strap on a Fender and rage against the machine.

There is a slightly patronizing flavor to portions of this mostly enjoyable film. But the interview subjects are very likable and charismatic, which certainly helps.

Girls Rock! is scrappy, but at its best, it shows you humans blooming with the speed of flowers in time-lapse photography.

'Why don't you start your own band? That's a lot cooler than having a boyfriend in a band!' So says 15-year-old Laura, who makes a better pitch for the 'empowerment' aspects of the Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls than do the adult counselors...

There's so much joy and coming-of-age angst turned into nuggets of gold that it seems uncharitable to ask, what might be missing (more onscreen appreciation for rock's goddesses and gods, perhaps.)

Never seeks to be anything more than a simplistic look at young women not just learning how to create music, but how to take hold of their talents and use it to their advantage...

Music -- as a general concept and in the daily details of rock camp -- occasions this ideal state, connected and creative.

Girls at risk take the world by storm at an artists' refuge where it's all right to scream.

Rhetoric far outweighs substance in this vaguely satisfying and preachy doc.

captures a good deal more than the sometimes discordant music produced by these young, would-be chick-monsters of rock.

Young women find expression for more than their music in Girls Rock!, a jubilant documentary about a place where power chords and empowerment go hand in hand.

Girls Rock! happily pulls off the trick of being both entertaining and moving; grown-up girls may well watch with an occasional tear as we see the campers subtly transform.

The directors take a compassionate approach that encourages their young subjects to open up in remarkable ways, making this a must-see both for girls and the grownups who love them.

Girls Rock! is a success story because of the earnest heart with which it introduces us to some girls who don't realize how much they really do rock.
