The comedy in the film is oftentimes predictable, but it mostly works for such a short and sweet production.

Frizzell's witty screenplay and electric directing style makes Never Goin' Back the perfect love letter for teen rebellion.

[The girls] bawdiness is no worse than something in the average, male-dominated, gross-out comedy, some viewers just won't be comfortable....

Ultimately no life lessons are learned, but you can't help but root for these misfits to realize their goal of eating donuts by the ocean.

Never gets enough above its genre conventions to find a way into heart or head.

Augustine Frizzell's Never Goin' Back presents a gloriously trashy and uproariously raunchy comedy about two besties having the worst week ever.
November 6, 2018
The resourcefully off-kilter Never Goin' Back has a cynically charming yet blunt aura about its problematic protagonists. Both Mitchell and Morrone bring a caustic kookiness to their roles...

"Never Goin' Back" is one of several movies this year, including "Flower" and "Assassination Nation," which let teenage girls be just as gross as their male counterparts. You wouldn't think gags about throwing up and constipation could be so empowering.

"Never Goin' Back" suggests a bright future for filmmaker Augustine Frizzell.

Never Goin' Back, on the surface, has the appearance of another low-ball stoner comedy, but ends up being a sweetly natured buddy flick, that would do the likes of Cheech and Chong very proud
September 27, 2018
Transcends its stoner comedy roots and makes something unique out of them.

The smartly dumb Never Goin' Back is a blissfully low-rent comedy that occasionally approaches the rarified, hazy air of the sainted first half of Cheech and Chong's Next Movie. Absolutely no lessons are learned, thankfully.

That you have no trouble believing the characters' actions may say something about the actresses' abilities. Neither, however, do you care.

You don't often see these characters on screen -- young, financially embarrassed but unashamed women determined to seek their hedonistic bliss while taking neither guff nor notes from the menfolk.
August 24, 2018
Powered by the impeccable chemistry of Mitchell and Morrone and an eclectic debut by writer/director Augustine Frizzell, Never Goin' Back is a laid back summer comedy that makes you eager to see what the mentioned three will do next.

Screamingly funny and unexpectedly quite tender. It's like "Beaches," but with bumps of blow and weed butter.

If the goal was to prove pretty girls poop, too, mission accomplished, but why must it come at the expense of our intellect? Still, if you check your brain at the door, there's a reasonable good time to be had.
August 17, 2018
Female stoner comedy Never Goin' Back is raunchy and ridiculous, a portrait of girls behaving badly and not giving a f*ck.
August 16, 2018
Slack but engaging, finding Frizzle throwing a screen party with her cast, who rise to the occasion, delivering heroically fresh performances while they periodically march through formulaic mischief.
August 10, 2018
Never Goin' Back is a breezy eighty-six minutes of absurd hijinks, but it is failed by a lackluster script that doesn't quite have the jokes on the page.
