anything but a cautionary expose. In fact, it's almost an urban fairy tale.
Scott Weinberg

A movie for those in love with the rave scene, and those who are just curious.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

The fresh-faced cast of newcomers and edgy, restless camerawork make up for the script's inherent predictability.

If this movie achieves anything, it makes you realize how dull parties really are.

Features plenty of blaring and thumping techno-pop tunes, but not much else.

The film's cast does little to offset Harrison's insecurity behind the camera.

Harrison is too serious about this milieu; he seems to be making the suggestion that kids really have found party nirvana this time.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

February 14, 2001
Offers a look at the underground rave scene, providing an accurate picture of what one night must be like, but without giving any insight beyond the superficial.

Most of the performances are stiff, and the awkward dialogue is made even worse by the way in which it is delivered.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
January 1, 2000
Like drug movies from the 1960s, it's naive, believing that the problems of the straight life can be solved by dropping out and tuning in.

Likable and energetic, basically artificial, and quite a bit of fun.

It's a fun night, even if this party lacks Go's cleverness and stars.

What's infectious about Groove is the friendly, almost innocent way that its brat pack of digital-age bohemians seek liberation in a world where there is nothing left to rebel against.

The words don't mean much, but it has got a good beat and you can dance to it.

One Guy's Opinion
January 1, 2000
Harrison has devised a series of mini-dramas which he inserts, in intercut fashion, within the overall structure of the rave, and it's here that his effort fizzles.

There's such a sunny air about this subterranean party story that it's difficult not to like.
Top Critic
January 1, 2000
A little bland, but it puts you in the mood to forgive it: relaxed and mellow and accepting.
