Critic Reviews for 16 To Life
This low-key romantic comedy is a bit like a combination of Jane Austen's "Emma" and John Hughes' "16 Candles." It takes a while to get going, but eventually the quirky, likable characters do grow on you.
The performances are all fine, but the characters do very little, and what they do isn't engaging.
Audience Reviews for 16 To Life
Considering how the movie took place over a day, specifically the heroine, Kate's birthday, it was really entertaining. I didn't know what to expect, but I hadn't expected a sweet story about a girl dealing with her nonexistent lovelife, her friends, and her job.
If you like your coming-of-age tales in the vein of "Sixteen Candles" then Becky Smith's "16 to Life" is a film right up your well-worn alley.
Each character was well defined immediatly, and not just because of the name tags. The characters each had specific and individual independent personalities that were easy to relate to. There were some twists in the movie that were unexpected, and this gave "16 To Life" that highlighted adventure of a teenage viewpoint. The 'seasonings' within the movie left movie goers still thinking about the moive long after they had left the theatre. Hirsh's character was a strong willed teenager that parents would love to have as a daughter and average ego teens would want to have as a friend. Most people can only speculate what a teenager could or is thinking. I believe Becky Smith truly put herself into this movie, digging into the complicated minds of the Iowa teenager. The music was upbeat and fitting to each scene and mood of the movie. All meshed well together! Kudos to you Becky and to your cast.
