Too dumb for the arthouse, but too smart for the mall multiplex, the movie satisfies, paradoxically, precisely because it doesn't deliver on expectations.

Levine has fun with the genre, but he's found more interesting movies to make since. "Mandy" isn't quite dandy, but it's a cut above average.

"Mandy" is a sturdy little slasher film, nothing more.

While some of the kills are sufficiently clever and gnarly, "Mandy Lane" is never particularly frightening. And the twist at the end raises the wee issue of character motivation-or lack thereof.

There's a slightly nasty twist to some of the violence, with an air of school shooter menace ultimately creeping in as the group's tormentor is revealed.

A slightly artsy attempt to revive the teen slasher movie, "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" drifts awkwardly between popcorn entertainment and angsty mood piece.

The film's ambitions are respectable, but it unfortunately doesn't live up to them.

This isn't a masterpiece, just a well made effort by someone who seemingly understands the pros and cons of how to deliver the shivers.

The third act twist is what's made this one's inflated reputation, but it's what makes this more risible than a mere genre entry.

The movie is well-made, with more effort placed on building tension than on creating bloody payoffs.

A stylish and self-conscious teen body-count horror film.

The boys might love the title character, but it's doubtful many of them will like her movie.

What we might actually call a "thinking man's slasher flick."

Mandy Lane is sunshine and light, but we can sense the dark side everywhere as Levine blends his potent ingredients with the savvy of a Manhattan mixologist.

Audience Reviews for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

If you like your movies slow, boring, and dumb than this "horror" film is for you. Most of it is underage teenagers drinking lots of booze, smoking weed, taking pills, and having sex with one another until someone gets killed. I know this formula all too well. It can be a guilty pleasure at times if done well, but here it is not even remotely done well. The acting is awful, the dialog is laughable at times, and every character central to the plot lacks any motivation at all. Some people have called this a thinker's slasher. I have no idea how they thought that. The movie does look good though. It has a great vintage horror movie look to it. Amber Heard is clearly the central piece and males will fawn over her, but it isn't nearly enough to sit through this. After 30 minutes I wanted it to end. Jonathon Levine has directed some good movies, but I don't know what he was thinking here.

Before he conquered Hollywood with great films like 50/50 and Warm Bodies, director Jonathan Levine made a little horror movie called All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. It premiered in Toronto back in 2006, got picked up by a distributor, then sat on the shelf for seven years and is now finally getting a release.
There's been a fare bit of hype being built from those fans who did see it way back when. Now that I've seen it, I'm not so sure where the hype is coming from.
One thing I did admire about the film is the premise. Mandy Lane, who just one year ago was an average nobody, suddenly blossomed into the hottest girl at school. She's still a shy, quiet, "virgin-like" girl, but now all the boys want to get with her, persuading the "in" crowd to invite Mandy to come with them to a quiet cabin for a weekend of partying. The story definitely touches upon how superficial teenage relationships can be, and on the pressure teenage girls feel to look beautiful from both boys and their fellow female acquaintances. But the film doesn't explore this theme with much depth. The script is too shallow to extract any meaning.
Soon enough the teens are dispatched one by one at the hands of a serial killer. The violence is gory, but the execution is predictable and lacking any suspense. I never felt engaged towards any of the characters, and couldn't care less about the outcome, which by the way makes no sense in comparison to the rest of the narrative. As a slasher film, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane lacks scares and tension. As a critique on teenage life, it's a missed opportunity.

Chloe: You're coming this weekend, right?

All The Boys Love Mandy Lane can now be finally seen by all. The first thing to really say is 'Mandy Lane' is an effective horror feature that trades in true originality for solid horror craftsmanship. There is a lot one can unpack in explaining the history behind how this film made back in 2006 is just now being released, but I see no need to really do so. The best I can do in this regard is stating how great a double feature of All The Boys Love Mandy Lane and You're Next would be, as far as 'good horror movies with troubled distribution history' go. There may have been a delay, but the film certainly stands on its own as far as being a solid entry in the genre.
