Critic Reviews for Behaving Badly

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

This ruthlessly unfunny misfire should be quickly relegated to an IMDb trivia question after a brief theatrical bow.

Top Critic

Aside from a few lines of juicy bad language, Gomez plays the innocent in this fast-paced screwball farce, which is full of cheerful vulgarity but dangerously low on wit, charm or narrative logic.

Top Critic

Behaving Badly is a contender for the worst film of the year...

Movie Mezzanine

Raunchy high school comedy is a big disappointment.

Common Sense Media

For a comedy that so desperately wants to be rude and sexy, this movie is remarkably timid. It does a great job putting up a front as an anarchic laugh riot, but the genuinely funny moments are few and far between.

Full Review… | August 1, 2014

A number of really talented people make appearances in the wretchedly unfunny teen sex comedy Behaving Badly; so many that you wonder if a producer has incriminating photos stashed somewhere.

Audience Reviews for Behaving Badly


One good girl, several very bad choices.

Mediocre Comedy! I did not get into the Śmovie right away, the first 10 minutes are excruciating, but after the flashback, and the real story starts it gets much easier. However the ending is just as bad as the beginning, and is just a bunch of random solutions that do not all make sense, in order to stretch out some of the cheaper jokes. This is not really a movie for the kids.

18 year old Rick Stevens is willing to do whatever it takes to win the heart of Nina Pennington. In his quest to land the girl of his dreams, he has to contend with her psycho ex, his best friends horny mother, a manic strip club manager, a perverted principal, a lecherous priest, his suicidal mother, and a patron saint with a camel toe. No one ever said Ślove was easy.

Yes, it's a terrible movie, but at the same time I found myself fascinated, and even amused, by just how outrageously stupid it was.

Not bad. A kid gets into a serious of crazy mishaps as he tries to woo the girl of his dreams. (None of the mishaps were amazing and it was a bit dull. You've seen this movie a lot before, but better).
