An occasionally compelling, dark and sometimes darkly funny movie draws us in but doesn't really pay off. And any teenager knows what that describes -- a tease.

... a lamentable waste of genuine talent, an example of how a weak link spoils a collaborative effort

Thematically the movie never reaches beyond the ready-for-prime-time mentality that specializes in psychological shorthand.

The Quiet fails to realize its ambition of melding the satirical levity of a teen high-school comedy with serious, issue-oriented drama.

Arizona Daily Star

Babbit overplays her hand, heavily hinting at every mystery, and by the midpoint the film is just a long dive into the inevitable.

It's a complete fraud that never feels the least bit authentic in its efforts to titillate and shock.

what should have been heavily emotional material careens instead quite quickly into high camp

Neither ambitious enough to take seriously nor sleazy enough to enjoy, The Quiet flirts with the trappings of exploitation cinema without going all the way.

Combustible Celluloid

The film could have been re-jiggered as a psychotic after-school special, straightforward, without all the so-called twists that seem to be a requirement of thrillers today.

Movie Eye

[Babbit] basically waltzes through this mundane material without so much a titillating revelation that feels grounded in substantial decadence.

Cinema Crazed

A hilariously bad and utterly ridiculous piece of melodrama touted as a thriller.

An uneven satire/black comedy that lurches from serious drama to black comedy and back again.

Speaks queasy volumes about the refracted manner in which the sexualization of female adolescents is viewed as a form of perverse entertainment.

[Cuthbert] picked a poor film to get behind as star and producer: it mistakes luridness for tragedy and monotony for sophistication.

Perversely sordid, some of the creepy soft-core scenes cross the lurid line of bad taste.

Pretentious and pointless -- take a pass.
