Sleepover (2004)



Critic Consensus: 'Tween girls will enjoy this sugar coated fluff, but others will find Sleepover a snooze.

Movie Info

In the summer before their freshman year in high school, Julie has a slumber party with her best friends: Hannah, Yancy and Farrah. In an attempt to cast off their 'less-than-cool' reputations once and for all, Julie and her friends enter into an all-night scavenger hunt against their "popular girl" rivals. Hijacking dad's car, sneaking into clubs, evading Julie's mother, and even a first kiss--anything is possible at Julie's sleepover. As a foursome, they end up having the adventure of their lives.more

Critic Reviews for Sleepover

All Critics (106) | Top Critics (37)

Nussbaum's attempt to capture the 'tween zeitgeist fails: The Spice Girls-infused soundtrack is dated, and the feel-good progressiveness forced.

A terrible film.

Not overwhelmingly original or funny.

Top Critic

Just when the big screen could use an injection of frothy, giggly girl power -- all in the name of a covert feminist message, of course -- Sleepover squanders that promise with a blah story and even bigger bummer of a take-home message.

Not for younger kids, despite its PG rating.

Had me near tears. Not good tears, but painful tears.

Audience Reviews for Sleepover

Adorable tween Cinderella romantic comedy :)

Sleepover is not the greatest chick flick of all time, but holds the style together with ease, making this one of my favourites. It is very hard for a chick flick to impress me, and this one accomplished that! I really enjoyed Sleepover!
