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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
