Critic Reviews for Standing Ovation
Parents and anyone beyond adolescence will find it an intolerable attempt to cash in by imitating films they've seen before.
For us grinchy adults out there without children to sedate, the whole thing feels slightly less like a movie than like the filmed record of a mutiny at a juvie talent agency.
Despite its absurdly optimistic title, Standing Ovation deserves a resounding chorus of boos, and maybe a few well-aimed tomatoes.
Standing Ovation is an innovative film in the sense that every minute or so it comes up with a different way of being annoying.
A glittery string of backstage conventions. Backstabbing! Pushy parents! Precocious stars! Blind ambition! But if you're a tween (and don't watch Glee), the cliches will be new to you.
It's a bubblegum mess, lacking structure, coherence,and any sense of drama. But it manages moments of daft fun, sometimes in spite of itself.
A slight, poorly thought-out take on Disney's plethora of music franchises
The cast is energetic but the talent is amateurish and the script is dead on arrival.
This lame musical advertises itself as 'the most rockin' movie of the summer'. Replace 'rockin'' with 'rotten' and they would just about have it right.
Leaves one wistful for the cable-level adequacy of Disney Channel's High School Musical films.
Here's an oddball low-budget movie aimed at tweens that has a couple of things going for it.
'Standing Ovation' isn't a movie. It's an endurance test for anyone over the age of 13. (Parental Review also available)
I had never heard of the people in Standing Ovation before I saw it, and I hope never to hear of any of them again.
It's an amateurish, poorly assembled and incompetently performed collection of musical comedy cliches.
Standing Ovation will have its work cut out for it at the viciously competitive box office, but the film may serve as a springboard for the eager and able talent on display.
