Critic Reviews for Losin' It

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Curtis Hanson makes a commendable effort with a rather obvious story about three teenage boys who head for a wild weekend in Tijuana, hoping to trade hard cash for manly experience.

Top Critic

[An] amiable, but entirely predictable trifle.

Top Critic

[It] isn't without its likable moments, but it isn't overloaded with them, either.

New York Times
Top Critic

Inoffensive of this kind (except for the usual array of stock Mexicans), but wholly unoriginal.

Not awful teen-sex flick; Tom Cruise fans should get a kick out of it.

April 3, 2005

Trite and tiresome.

Audience Reviews for Losin' It

this is what i like to call a teenage hump movie,and this is one of my favorites.it was directed by Curtis Hanson who also, get this ,directed L.A.confidential.AINT THAT SOME SHIT.it was also cruises' first flick.but the high light of the movie is Jackie earl Haley a.k.a. Kelly leek or the new Freddie Kruger.that sumbitch is funking hilarious in this thing.everything he does makes me laugh.from a sock for his Wang,to him negotiating a price with a ho. also Hanson must be a big star wars fan because there are a ton of references from the masterpiece.this movie is not going to blow you away or anything .most people are not looking to get blown by a movie of this kind.well maybe blown in a different sense of the word, as in to blow,or suck the dic..........i would jump all over this one.

This teen drama/comedy/adventure is fun for the most part and it has some good actors too, but it could be better, funnier mostly, but also it needs to be a bit more intense maybe? A different director maybe? I'm not sure, but it's pretty good the way it is.

Insipid junk notable only for early appearances of Tom Cruise and Shelley Long, that's NOT enough to sit through this.
