All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

Sweet and well-intentioned, Sassy Pants is difficult to dislike, despite its missteps.

Top Critic

Until "Sassy Pants" loses its nerve and turns somewhat warm and fuzzy, Ms. Sohn maintains tight control of the story of Bethany's liberation from her domestic prison to pursue fashion.

Top Critic

Although it attempts a kind of outré pose, the film ultimately proves a too-gentle juggling act that never quite soars.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

With its positive gay images, and even a perfectly executed two-step line dance, Sassy Pants is a feel-good movie for girls of both sexes.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Landing between the twee, naturalistic and formulaic, Sassy Pants settles for cute, taking too few gambles to make a more lasting impression.

Top Critic

Sassy Pants has a slightly ludic atmosphere akin to another tale of teen alienation, Dear Lemon Lima, but it unfolds like a fable in which only Bethany doesn't feel like a canned caricature.

Audience Reviews for Sassy Pants


This was a very quirky movie that I almost gave up on because everything about this family was so strange. I am glad that I watched it all the way through to see this family work things out in the end.

Heather Metzger

This is probably one of the most underrated movies I've seen in recent months. As a whole it's really cute and fun, but the real standout is Haley Joel Osment in his hilarious role as a flamboyant gay man. There's not a lot of plot, but there really doesn't need to be. This movie's goal is to be fun, and it achieves it wholeheartedly.
