It's a fun, upbeat movie, and there are scenes that are downright hilarious.

So what's new about The New Guy? Not much, actually.

DJ Qualls does possess some charm, but not the chutzpah to make the forced humor float.
June 11, 2013
A very forgettable new teen comedy.
June 11, 2013
Despite the endearing presence of DJ Qualls, this feeble farce scrapes the bottom of the gross-out barrel with pitiful results.
June 11, 2013
A comedy just funny enough to make viewers wish it were far funnier.
June 11, 2013
Maybe the only thing revelatory about The New Guy is how redemptive a good heart can be to even the most derivative film. Be prepared to smile.

The New Guy is a waste of talent and time.

April 29, 2009
Lame, hokey, filled with plot holes, and cursed with a lazy script.
August 6, 2008
Distinguished by certain rodent-like features, Qualls is a bargain-basement, pre-adult version of David Spade -- and becomes just as tiresome.
August 5, 2007
Joyless dreck, another dumbed-down teen comedy fired out of Hollywood with all the crudeness of a spitball.
Full Review | Original Score: D

It isn't very good, but it doesn't seem to care, which turns out to be rather refreshing.
December 30, 2006
Likeable characters and a cliched but meatier-than-usual story for a teen comedy.

No words can describe how truly awful this movie is.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
August 1, 2003
The New Guy's no worse than other teen recent teen-aimed flicks like Slackers, but that's not exactly a compliment.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 25, 2003
Algumas piadas são muito boas, mas, de modo geral, o filme decepciona. Caso se mantivesse politicamente incorreto, seria melhor.
| Original Score: 2/5

Too little Griffin and too much toilet humor equals too bad for The New Guy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 8, 2003
Mentioning plot holes or logical discrepancies would be almost redundant; this is a case where no critic's opinion will affect the film's failure.

Never gets on the good foot.

Tries too hard to be funny in a way that's too loud, too goofy and too short of an attention span.
