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

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

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.

How many 14-year-old girls do you know who would set up a blind date with a grown-up over the Internet? (Yeah, I found this creepy too.)

Approaching Sleepover with any sort of sensitivity or intelligence is an act of extreme masochism.

There's not a scene that doesn't feel as if we've been there before.

Thanks to a few wacky set pieces, it's not quite as excruciating as it could have been.

Generation X-ers continue to feel superior about their teen films...adding intelligence & darkness can make a generic teen romp into a rewatchable touchstone. Not Sleepover.

Suffers from heavy-handedness, obvious plotting, and a basic dearth of wit.

...some may become rather drowsy at this Sleepover...yet another anemic manufactured teen flick...the cheesy sentiment only lasts as long as the aftertaste of a fried Twinkie

With a derivative, disturbing script that encompasses almost every coarse adolescent comedy cliche and encourages outright lying and deception, it's a lame, tasteless yawn.

A film aimed to entertain 7 to 12 year old girls and no one else.

It may be true that all 14-year-olds desire to be older and strive to appear so, but exploring those wishes and dreams in such a superficial, coarse and insensitive way as this movie does is neither responsible nor good entertainment for anyone of any age

Audience Reviews for Sleepover

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!

The worst teenage movie I've already watched so far... The cast shows a terrible acting, the directing style is disturbing and annoying, and yet I don't have a lot of fun while watching it... One of the factor is there are no big teenage stars starred in this movie, that's the reason why this movie sucks... I don't blame the story, because I don't expect a better story from a teenage movie besides a bunch of girls having fun and go to the prom... The big question is, how can Steve Carrell starred in this movie???
