While the movie doesn't feel as natural as other teenage drama films, it does capture the adolescent life in a meaningful way.

If there were any justice in the world, Zac Efron would be the Applebee's waiter he ought to be and Anton Yelchin would be a giant star. He's got talent & charm and absolutely *makes* this movie. It's great, just rent it.

It's not breaking any ground but it's a teen comedy and a damn fine one at that. The story is unique enough to be interesting and mainstream enough to be relateable. All of the characters are finely crafted and seem real throughout. It's also damn funny

The concept is both original and for the most part creatively executed. It is certainly made stronger by Anton Yelchin's performance as Charlie, whose mixture of self-doubt and cockiness give us an interesting characters study. As a film however, lack of cohesion and a good ending keep this film from greatness.

The story is kinda scrambled, but it's still a fun teen flick with good laughs.

Cute teen coming of age flick with a great cast. Not only teen problems are probed, but adult ones, too.

An average teen drama

It kind of juggles a bit more than it can manage, but for the most part I appreciated how honest and sweet "Charlie Bartlett" was. It's a film that so easily could have drawn its characters in a cookie-cutter fashion, but the writing and direction do a nice job of giving everyone some layers. The performances all around elevate the characters too.

A quirky dark comedy very intelligently written somewhat modern day version of Ferris Bruellers Day Off but much darker. A master of manipulation Charlie uses his charming skills to alter events to go his way. I thought it was brilliant because it was a teen angst type film but done in such a unique witty way.

Though the protagonist has a charm and a style that could carry the movie (which is funny and clever when it wants to be), it mixes teen drama clumsily reducing the eventual bite and polish to eventual mediocrity. Either be Ferris Bueller or a Gus van Sant film, Charlie.

I saw this movie when I was at my moms Ex-Boyfriends house when I was in sixth or seventh grade. it was kind of confusing, but pretty good overall.

A great coming of age dramedy. I didnt even know who downey was until I saw Iron man. Then I saw this again and appreciated it way more. Downey is king!

Starting out quite slow, a bit random, and lacking depth, Charlie Bartlett is still a fun and enjoyable ride.

Despite what the people say, I thought that this was a very good telling of high school life. There are lots of problems in a teen's life that people just seem to ignore. I think this is a good depiction.
