Too bad the music sucks and the tale's flat as a board.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
April 5, 2005
There's a sharp sense of honest rock-chick energy that draws us into this film, even when its story takes a few overwrought and melodramatic turns.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Cult favorite Gina Gershon is at the top of her smart, snarly game...
April 20, 2004
Gershon is the only reason to watch the film.

February 2, 2004
Too much of a morbid soap opera to be any fun or truly dramatic.
| Original Score: 1/4
January 5, 2004
While it gets a good deal of the background right, the picture stumbles in the dramatic department.

December 19, 2003
Edgy, intense, and thoroughly engaging. What makes this movie work is Gina Gershon - the movie rests squarely on her shoulders and she never gives a false note.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 18, 2003
Aside from Ms. Gershon's performance (none of the other cast members actually played), there's little to elevate the music -- or the movie -- above cliché.

Why isn't Gina Gershon a bigger star?

November 14, 2003
Played with the right combination of weariness and optimism by Gina Gershon, Jacki will be recognizable to any woman who has ever strapped on a guitar and plugged in, as well as to those of us who have encountered her.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 7, 2003
A rock drama that's hung over with inauthenticity.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 31, 2003
Despite all its angst and bitterness, Prey doesn't convey the pure appreciation of rock 'n' roll that goofy Jack Black embodies in School.
Full Review| Original Score: 2/4
October 28, 2003
...a fairly enjoyable look at the trials and tribulations of an all-girl punk band.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 23, 2003
It's a raw and raucous rock story that, for once, gets the big picture and the small details right.

An ingratiatingly scrappy little movie.
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 22, 2003
What we want to see is these women onstage, strutting and posturing and kicking out the jams. Instead, we become waylaid in dramatic sidelines that serve little purpose.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 22, 2003
There's enough melodrama here to top a movie-of- the-week marathon on Lifetime.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 19, 2003
More bad things happen to these four women than one independent film can possibly carry.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
October 17, 2003
More a string of set pieces than a coherent narrative.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
