What Goes Up Reviews

S. Jhoanna Robledo
Common Sense Media

High school drama tale is too edgy for young teens.

Cinema em Cena

O humor melancólico estabelecido pelo estreante Glatzer funciona na maior parte do tempo, sendo beneficiado ainda pela impecável performance de Coogan.

| Original Score: 4/5

Monsters and Critics

An epic dramedy of teenage angst that is too much drama and not enough comedy for Steve Coogan's good.

Brian Orndorf

The film opens chaotically, perhaps randomly, and it never finds its proper footing. Most movies take their sweet time to reveal incompetence. What Goes Up boldly advertises it within the first 60 seconds.

What Goes Up is an earnest morality tale. It's very uneven, but it also seems sincere.

About as cruddy as a cruddy little indie can get, especially given a cast that should've known better.

The whole thing feels like a premeditated attempt at a Sundance sensation, a mix of cast members (and ideas) from Juno and Hamlet 2 spiced up with the now obligatory '80s references.

Director and co-writer Jonathan Glatzer handles his talented cast well, and the movie is dark, droll and sentimental in roughly the correct proportions.

I never know quite what they were saying about heroism and then there are all these unanswered questions.

The film really struggles to find its voice and to find purpose and meaning.

Has a charismatic performance by Steve Coogan, but that's not nearly enough to save it from drowning from its bland, awkward and lazy screenplay that fails to generate any real laughs or palpable dramatic tension.

A rambling, self-serious and chronically unfocused look at '80s-era small town America and the socio-psychological anguish of disaffected youth.

[Director] Glatzer aims to wring laughter out of this desperation but succeeds only in producing a series of contrived characters and situations that make The Breakfast Club look like an unfiltered documentary.

An unusually subdued Coogan does his best, but this is the kind of pretentious nonsense he usually satirizes.

Mr. Coogan doesn't seem altogether comfortable with his part, which, like the story, undergoes a number of unconvincing changes.

Such a confused, convoluted, odd piece of cinema that I almost recommend seeing it just because it is so very unusual.

While it's often as amateurish as it is assured, Glatzer and writer Robert Lawson want to convey so much that the sheer breadth of the movie means they hit a few of their targets.

If What Goes Up is what we can expect in the post-Juno era of alt-dramedy programming, then burn, Indiewood, burn!

Muted and never moving, instead finding no insight while dragging its feet along a variety of forced quirks.
