Girls rock, flat documentaries do not.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 3, 2008
The directors sacrifice substantially investigating the four girls for Morgan Spurlock-ish populist gimmickry.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 13, 2009
The filmmakers end up rushing us through these girls' stories, achieving a vague sense of female angst but ultimately barely skimming the surface.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

comes off a bit like an extended advertisement for the place

There is something, well, awesome about watching these vivid young women...get onstage after five days and ferociously sing earnest lyrics they wrote themselves.

March 7, 2008
Some of the footage is entertaining. Too much of it is confusing, repetitive or unremarkable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 6, 2008
This dreary doc does little more than underline the talking points.
August 1, 2008
There's too little clarity or thoroughness in the biographies, too few prolonged scenes of the girls creating their songs.

Though Girls Rock! is nothing if not well meaning, it doesn't always feel like the best possible film on the subject.

While it is absorbing to see girls in this environment, the psychological and sociological perspective which the filmmakers bring teaches us about their subjects rather than allowing us to get to know them.
September 26, 2008
It's a great program and a great subject, but Girl's Rock! directors Shane King and Arne Johnson don't quite know what to do with it.

When you see these formerly awkward girls make their debuts in a concert for more than 600 people, you'll want to throw the devil horns and cry.
April 11, 2008
There's so much joy and coming-of-age angst turned into nuggets of gold that it seems uncharitable to ask, what might be missing (more onscreen appreciation for rock's goddesses and gods, perhaps.)

An intelligent, eye-opening documentary that gives young women a chance to open their tightly-guarded hearts and explore their talents and bliss.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
March 5, 2008
The pacing and tone of Girls Rock! match its subject perfectly.
March 8, 2008
Rhetoric far outweighs substance in this vaguely satisfying and preachy doc.
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 6, 2008
The shy, awkward subjects of Girls Rock! stand in refreshing contrast to the American Idol ideal of potential superstars.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 6, 2008
Girl-power docu has a strong positive message.
