She's Out of Control Reviews

Page 1 of 1
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic IconTop Critic

She's Out of Control is simultaneously so bizarre and so banal that it's a first: the first movie fabricated entirely from sitcom cliches and plastic lifestyles, without reference to any known plane of reality.

Leering and tacky, yet annoyingly chaste at the same time. Should have remained the TV-movie it was meant to be.

| Original Score: 1/5

If we were judging the film on Ms Dolenz's beauty, this would be a winner.

Despite some funny scenes, the sitcomish treatment of a father's anxiety over his teenage daughter's budding sexuality is mostly shallow and uneven.

Dragoti's dire, dishonest, seldom humorous social comedy has all the nauseating hallmarks of a big-budget sitcom.

Essentially a feature-length sitcom, She's Out of Control specializes not in psychology but in snappy patter.

The script is another one of those high-concept specials that sound like they were midwifed by an agent.

As dated as an '80s music video...

This is the kind of film that makes me wish we could simply erase the 1980's.

It's an irksome, one-dimensional sitcom with smut.

She's Out of Control is predictable, silly and contrived, all of which could be forgiven if it were funny enough. It's not.

It is an extended version of familiar, bland sitcom situations.

This leads to all manner of trivial, pseudo-comic shenanigans, but not to any insight, comic or otherwise, into the emotional realities of father-daughter relationships.

Director Stan Dragoti keeps things lively and makes this adolescent paean to popularity relatively painless.
