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.

[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.

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!

I've seen a lot of terrible movies in the line of duty, but What Goes Up might be the only genuinely unreleasable one.

Without a trace of tempo or one shred of narrative pacing, What Goes Up is not really a movie; it's the cheapest kind of amateurishness that looks like it was shot with a cell phone.

Given its title and direct linkage to the 1986 Challenger shuttle disaster -- nearly adds tasteless to its unflattering hat trick.
