Critic Reviews for The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

A funnier-than-expected, thrillingly accurate assessment of what makes a night out in Los Angeles such a nightmare.

Pic's rough production values and flubbed comedy contrast with the amusing and plentiful voice-over narration and the dazzling graphic design that suggests Peter Max on ecstasy.

The Boys' & Girls' Guide To Getting Down is primarily a mock-instructional video about how to get the most out of your nightlife (albeit from a decidedly L.A. perspective).

Never has party life in Los Angeles been better represented and The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down is definitely one of the best party movies ever.

Audience Reviews for The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down

An irreverent... wait, am I really using that word to review this movie?...jesus... anyway, this is a good send-up on everything that the cheesy world of pre-millenial romance used to look like. While it takes cues from social situations dating as far back as the 80's (gasp!) and can seem hilariously dated, it still hits home on many levels, and if you don't at least get a chuckle out of it, stop what you're doing and enroll in art school where no one in our 'dumbed-down' society will have to listen to your vapid opinion ever again. 4/5 because it doesn't try too hard, and imparts some age-old wisdoms (like brothers, it's not sexist to let a girl know that it's not cool to come onto you and use your drunken horniness to do all your drugs...SHANNON. *pouts*)

The epitome of everything I hate about humanity. That said, this is pretty well made for a semi-fake documentary/educational film parody/I don't even know how to describe it. Not really a movie despite the constant characters. Fun Fact: Chapter XIV is the only part that applied to me.

Brilliant. I think a great number of people can relate to the hilarious and hauntingly spot-on depictions.
