Movie Info

Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha continues to explore the world of precocious adolescent girls with this tale of a quirky teen whose mind perpetually drifts back to thoughts of growing up, procuring the perfect boyfriend, and throwing the biggest birthday bash ever. While maintaining the perfect social life or getting that nose job she so desperately wants were once her highest priorities in life, the girl who wanted it all gradually discovers that family and friends are more important than any popularity contest.

Critic Reviews for Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (2)

The film lacks the wit and drama that might pitch it beyond the target demographic, though judging from what makes the girls squirm in the film, it might not succeed even there.

A good-natured bundle of early-teen femme angst pitched squarely at the youngsters who've made Louise Rennison's books a hit both sides of the Pond.

A perfectly entertaining chick flick with strong performances and Gurinder Chadha's trademark appeal to female sensibilities...

Cinema Crazed

It's such a sweet, funny movie, completely honest about hormones and young love.

Full Review… | January 10, 2010

...a lot of it is frivolous and predictable, yet there is also enough in it that's funny and appealing to make it a pleasant viewing experience probably for all ages.

Strictly for the burgeoning tweener set, concerned with acne, fashion, and that uniquely Brit expression of lust: snogging. In point of fact, the Brit viewpoint is what gives this film its singular charm.

Very solid, honest, and frank coming of age film from the director of "Bend It Like Beckham."
