The film's ambitions are respectable, but it unfortunately doesn't live up to them.

If all the boys really do love Mandy Lane, I must be the exception.

Levine's skills can't completely transform what is a severely underwhelming script.

Too good to abandon, but not some "lost classic" either.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

It makes 88 minutes seem like a lifetime.

Despite early promise for a semi-interesting examination of teenage obsession, the film devolves into a standard, and not thrilling, body-count builder.

One problem with "Mandy Lane's" attempt to poke fun at horror conventions is that it doesn't execute them well, which puts it in the position of trying to lampoon movies that are better than it is.

The boys may well love Mandy Lane, but cinemagoers are best advised to stay well away from her and the shockingly abysmal film that bears her name.

Like far too many modern horror films, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane flaunts its knowledge of classic genre fundamentals but fails to do anything very clever or surprising with them.

A partly smart, mostly dumb addition to the teen horror sweepstakes -- smart in how it neatly catches the petty, hurtful, sexy and druggy aspects of high school life, dumb in how it makes absolutely no sense once its resolution is known.

Cluttered with obnoxious CW-scented teen characterizations, cartoonish parades of clumsy adolescent lust, and fruitless stabs of suspense, Lane is a rotten idea all around.

A serial killer's wet dream peopled with all sorts of repugnant, rich, bored and terminally cynical Texas teens.
Rob Gonsalves
August 26, 2008
A rather dull meat-and-potatoes slasher film front-loaded with lots of tedium where character development used to go.

A slightly artsy attempt to revive the teen slasher movie, "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" drifts awkwardly between popcorn entertainment and angsty mood piece.

While some of the kills are sufficiently clever and gnarly, "Mandy Lane" is never particularly frightening. And the twist at the end raises the wee issue of character motivation-or lack thereof.

Here's a case where the backstory is more interesting than the movie.

A head-shaker of a twist undoes all the good built up in the beginning.

Levine has fun with the genre, but he's found more interesting movies to make since. "Mandy" isn't quite dandy, but it's a cut above average.

...a less-than-auspicious debut for a filmmaker who has gone onto bigger and better things (ie there was nowhere but up for Levine, really).
