  • Hey, hey, we get it already.

    July 2, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The sometimes strained efforts at quirky humour and the more melodramatic moments in the later scenes can feel like they belong in different movies altogether.

    July 1, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The filmmaker's overreliance on oddball characterizations and easy-bake kookiness often derails her seemingly loftier intentions.

    June 10, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Appearances by Toni Collette and Whale Rider's Keisha Castle-Hughes should draw a few curious parents to what is, most of the time, a quirky and quite enjoyable coming of age saga.

    April 23, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • If you're sick of Hollywood teen movies that can't see past the end of their next tube of lip gloss, this Aussie alternative is well worth checking out.

    July 2, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film starts slowly, but gets an energy burst when Keisha Castle-Hughes' enigmatic spiky-haired Sunni with a single earring and provocative gaze appears onscreen.

Audience Reviews for Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger

  • Dec 24, 2010
    Interestingly enough, a lot of people did not like this movie... and I am not sure why! It is a sneak peak in a life of a girl who is not very popular in an exclusive private school... a girl who will do anything to change that! It is awkwardly charming coming-of-age story about a "docile young dweeb who mixes with the cool kids, becomes an overnight badass, then gets seduced by the dark side of being popular". Someone wrote those words and I have to adopt them! There is no other way describing this Australian film for a whole family! It had a potential to become just one of the many cute and fuzzy teenagers flicks but the director and the screenwriter Cathy Randall skilfully turned it into a cautionary device for the realities of the 'real' life. "Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger" is definitely full with bumbling charm and it will please the teenagers audience with its giggly appeal. There were few odd scenes but mostly this invigorating movie strikes balance between comedy and drama. Main role of Danielle Catanzariti was very well done regarding the complexity of her personality in this movie, and Keisha Castle-Hughes, star of Whale Rider, fits in her role naturally. Watch it and fully enjoy it!

    Esther Blueburger, played by brilliantly newcomer Danielle Catanzariti, is a funny Aussie character I've seen since Josie Alibrandi in <i>Looking for Alibrandi</i>. Keisha Castle-Hughes does a good supporting performance as Esther's new rebellious friend, I was awake she has grown as a teenage since 2002's <i>Whale Rider</i>.
