Offers an irresistible sketchbook filled with prep school memories.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
I must admit I didn't hear every word. Some were muffled by my groans.
Fitfully amusing but nothing remarkable.
| Original Score: 3/5
Despite a good cast and the requisite selection of classic rock, this is a dead-end teen stoner flick.
Delightful cinematic surprise!
A lot of the movie has an honest, slice - of - life feel to it, and that really helps.
Michael Corrente loses his bearings, bringing nothing fresh, and everything bland.
| Original Score: C-
The film, despite never venturing into uncharted territory, is funny, warm, and endearing, and features a protagonist who grows on the audience.
Faithfully evokes the era!
Aggressively bland coming-of-age story!
A coming-of-age story of exceptional warmth and humor.
It's funny and offbeat, sometimes raucous, but it still manages to come at you in gentle layers.
When the Farrellys have a point to make they know just the right language.
The signature zaniness is missing from director Michael Corrente's adaptation.
Outside Providence doesn't wear out the small welcome it's won.
The movie reeks of the kind of atmosphere that makes you reach for the Lysol.
| Original Score: 2/4
Outside Providence, despite its familiar formula, feels fresh!
The characters are, without exception, surprisingly intelligent and always sympathetic!
Badly written and severely miscast!
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Corrente delivers the goods!
