Critic Reviews for Born Rich

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

It's [Johnson's] first film (it shows), but he strikes gold by getting the kind of access to his peers no one else could.

At least Johnson was honest to both the audience and himself, and kept an open mind. Really, that's all you can ask for.

Audience Reviews for Born Rich

The documentary is handled adequately, but it's the access and the candor Johnson is able to provide that makes Born Rich a little interesting.
