Mini's First Time Reviews

A comedy that's a mix of Mean Girls, Mamet and Mephistopheles.

Mini is too tame for Skina-max and too inane to survive on the art-house circuit. It's a pretentious erotic thriller that gives honest trash a bad name.

Mini is impossible to like, especially since she delivers some of the worst narration ever spoken, and her final lines are like a big middle finger to viewers foolish enough to enjoy the film.

A cheeky neo-noir that updates Double Indemnity for the high school set, Mini's First Time trades in black humor so dim you'd need a flashlight to find it.

A dandy exercise in depravity, debauchery, and cynicism.

Part of Mini's charm... may be in its single-minded devotion to the utterly depraved and comically debauched.

Mini's First Time unfortunately degenerates into a sexed-up version of a Law & Order episode.

Ron Wilkinson
Monsters and Critics

Black teenage comedy in a cautionary tale about the dangers of kids growing up alone.

| Original Score: 8/10
