Stupid movie pushes boundaries of PG-13.
August 7, 2008
Second-generation Hollywood wrestles with but never truly pins down this big-hearted, broad and often flat comedy...
August 6, 2008
[Kasdan] and White aim very low here and fail to take advantage of the abundant opportunities for social satire that its upper class and academic settings provide.

The urine-quaffing gags and hearty barfing asides are the lowbrow price extracted for...gestures towards semi-intelligence.

If all you're looking for is a mild comedy with four or five solid laughs and a whole bunch of familiar faces, you could do worse.
April 1, 2003
The sight of Black burning down an entire admin block during a moment of passion would warm up any winter.
March 19, 2003
It is a notch above the usual tripe we get from MTV films - but it's not a very big notch
March 10, 2003
Refreshingly, it's not as lowbrow or silly as your typical youth-oriented comedy of late.
February 8, 2003
...Second-rate teen comedy...
November 19, 2002
This is mostly weak stuff, with a timid and reactionary final message about how it's better to stay in your home town, rather than go for a big-city college education.

Orange County is a likable curiosity, but never more. If it's remembered at all, it will be as the starting point for a new generation of Hollywood stars.
August 29, 2002
A schizophrenic hodgepodge of coming-of-age sincerity and watered down Farrelly brothers antics, the movie is endearingly sweet-natured even as it gasps for air.
July 22, 2002
Despite some good intentions and a decent coming-of-age story, Orange County is sadly bogged down by lackluster jokes, poorly utilized celebrity cameos galore and decent if uninvolving leads.
June 30, 2002
This extremely unfunny film clocks in at 80 minutes, but feels twice as long.
June 12, 2002
There's probably a sweet little comedy hidden somewhere in Orange County. It's just too bad it's mired amidst so many small-minded pratfalls.
June 6, 2002
There's a general lack of subtlety -- the filmmakers try too hard to be zany or meaningful and rarely get either right.
March 4, 2002
Clearly, nobody will mistake Kasdan as a modern-day Aesop as his floundering yet free-wheeling fable Orange has the unwelcoming taste of a dour lemon.
February 4, 2002
Clocking in at a tight and merciful 83 minutes, Orange County feels like an afterthought.
January 26, 2002
You can feel the company's hands all over Orange County, which is a shame because if left alone, the film might have turned out to be another Election.
January 25, 2002
...a situational comedy in which the only funny thing is the fact that decent human beings allowed themselves to be associated with it.
