Critic Reviews for R.P.M.

All Critics (2)

Stanley Kramer' dated and unperceptive old-fashioned unintentionally laughable camp liberal pic.

October 14, 2013 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Pathetic attempt by Kramer to examine the difficulties hard-working college administrators faced during the 1960s when radicals tried to take over schools.
