Movie Info

In this fast-paced, outrageously funny, all-star romp, socially awkward high schooler Rick Stevens (Nat Wolff) is willing to do whatever it takes to win the heart of the girl of his dreams ... and he does mean anything. But love's a bitch! Particularly when your sights are set on the most beautiful and popular girl at school (teen queen and pop superstar Selena Gomez). (c) Vertical Entertainment

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

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.

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

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.

August 1, 2014 Full Review Source:

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.

August 1, 2014 Full Review Source:

Selena Gomez is adorable and manages to float away unscathed. But other than that, it's an unfunny comedy, populated by irredeemable sociopaths.

August 1, 2014 Full Review Source:

Behaving Badly is 97 minutes in a search of a laugh, each of them so punishing that viewers are left to spend most of the movie trying to figure out what went wrong.

One of the worst pictures of 2014, a tribute to Risky Business made by people who only read the synopsis on the back of the DVD box.

July 31, 2014 Full Review Source:

A misfiring misadventure not even recommended for diehard Selena Gomez fans.

A game supporting cast and a miscast leading man add up to a half-hearted randy teen farce

Rick's ultimate journey becomes less about atonement than simply getting the girl, and moral reclamation reveals itself as the vehicle by which to peddle a bunch of people behaving badly.

Audience Reviews for Behaving Badly

One good girl, several very bad choices.

Mediocre Comedy! I did not get into the ×movie 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 ×love 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.
