Radio Times

An intriguing, if not completely successful, spin on the rock movie.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Pare lacks charisma as Eddie, but the Bruce Springsteen-like music was good enough to put the soundtrack album in the Top 40 charts.

Eddie and the Cruisers is a mish-mash of a film, combining elements of the ongoing nostalgia for rock music of previous decades with an unworkable and laughable mystery plotline.

Low key and, despite the music, rather likeable.

I tend to doubt that you will ever see this movie double billed with Citizen Kane, but the two movies are structured pretty similarly.

Eddie and the Cruisers is all buildup and no payoff.

Eddie and the Cruisers is vivid, full of conviction and more than a little foolish at times.
