What the film lacks in production values, it makes up in authenticity and comic moxie, using real musicians in many key roles -- and they can actually play.
The movie's post-grunge Portland, Ore., quartet is almost laughably cliched -- which seems in direct opposition to the anti-authoritarian attitude of the movie.
The music is sensational, the energy level high, and Down and Out With the Dolls is a wise and funny treat.
Like a good punk tune, the filmmaker's focused energy distracts from compositional flaws.
A meritless and exasperating film experience, lacking any insight, drama or humor regarding its subject, the underground music scene.
A lot of the acting is amateurish, and most of the plot feels like a rehash of a rehash.
an assuredly made, unexpectedly poignant and hilarious feel-good flick, pitched somewhere between the goofy campiness of John Waters and the good-heartedness of Cameron Crowe
Taken at face-value and with no massive expectations, Dolls isn't a half-bad little indie.
Part Singles, part Hype! and part Josie and the Pussycats, with a healthy dose of bad camerawork, bad lighting, and extremely bad acting.
Most successful in rooting viewers in a convincing milieu; there's a certain attention to detail and fitful energy that leaves more of a vivid stamp in your brain than the movie as a whole probably earns.
With The Paper Dolls' music no longer being played, we're all much better off.
It buoys you with the charm of its cast and the bred-in-the-bone local feel even as you have to squint to ignore its failings in technique and storytelling.
