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

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

...aimed at early-teen girls, but it's got enough warmth and charisma to attract a wider audience.

The Age (Australia)
September 26, 2008
A bright, fitfully entertaining adaptation of two of Louise Rennison's popular novels for tween-to-teenage girls.

Even if you're long past the age of the characters in this film, you can enjoy the world of these girls who want, so badly, to become adults.

These are age-old themes, not tackled with particular verve here, but there's a nice moral about girls learning to accept themselves regardless of shape or colour.

Girls who are just starting to feel a little old for Hannah Montana will flock to this film, which will no doubt have a long life on the slumber party circuit.

Chadha gets some bumpy performances from her teenage cast.
Louise Keller
Urban Cinefile
September 13, 2008
Awkwardness, the first kiss, parents from the stone age and having a nose the size of Jupiter have never been so compelling as in this fresh and funny film
Andrew L. Urban

There is plenty of fun but always grounded in serious subjects, and the parents play an unexpectedly important role in the story

Relative newcomer Georgia Groome simply shines. You don't need to be a teenager to enjoy this -- you just have to remember being one.

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.
Derek Malcolm
London Evening Standard
July 25, 2008
This is all pleasant enough, but I can't quite believe it.

The title is horrible, and I'm afraid I didn't find the movie attached to it much better.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

The Sun (UK)
July 25, 2008
The film accurately captures that age-old teenage irony that the worst years of your life are also freakishly the best.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Daily Mirror (UK)
July 25, 2008
A smart, funny Bridget Jones' Diary for juniors that you don't have to be teenage or female to enjoy.
Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail (UK)

Beneath its girlie trappings...this is a movie with many traditional virtues.

One of summer's feelgood surprises.

I approached with a mixture of dread and resignation. And was promptly charmed to pieces.
