All Critics (21) | Top Critics (8)

The movie is full of nonsensical plot twists, embarrassingly broad performances and unappealing characters.

An awful teen horror comedy.

Simply put, absolutely none of it works. The movie utterly fails to set a foundation for its dark fantasy, effectively turning every character into a moron.

My Boyfriend's Back is obviously aiming for the subversive high school yuks of 1989's Heathers, but the story line never bothers to make sense.

Napkin-thin pic starts falling apart in the first reel.

If My Boyfriend's Back is an irredeemably silly movie, it has an engaging lightness of tone and uniformly impeccable performances by a cast that maintains just the right attitude of deadpan parody.

I thought this was really cool. I thought it was pretty neat. it is a bit dated but other than that it's a great watch.
