Critic Reviews for Hiding Out

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

this movie is fun to watch, but mostly as a way to remember the fashions and styles of 1980s high school

A fun, fast comic-thriller that serves the talents of Cryer magnificently

March 10, 2006

Hiding Out never once approaches funny. Were it not for the parade of cliches and stereotypes stolen from various high-school comedies, I'd have assumed that this movie was a straight drama.

Audience Reviews for Hiding Out


An enjoyable and highly amusing teen flick


Super Reviewer


Man, I LOVED Jon Cryer in this movie... perhaps even moreso than in "Pretty in Pink." Sick? Maybe.

Great disguise, Cryer -- EXACTLY the sort of look you want when you don't want to call attention to yourself.
