Hyperkinetic, perceptive though derivative examination of contemporary youth violence and American gun culture.

It's nice to see Mischa Barton flourish but this puppy version of a bank robbery is hardly a psycho thriller. The screaming was much, but there's Mischa!

Cool watching kids rob a bank, but I didn't feel there was a point to it.

Puppy Day Afternoon in its most amateurish version possible. A very powerful story, but awfully developed and not realistic at all.

'Pups' is about very emotive subjects (gun crime and gun ownership in the US, the loss of innocence and nihilism of younger generations) that manages raise them without ever turning to didacticism.

It is the sort of film Michael Moore wishes he had the intelligence to produce. It is political without wearing a badge on its sleeve, rather than spending the entire film hammering home an anti-gun message it treats us as adults.

But that's not really what I wanted to talk about because the political message is of secondary importance. Foremost this film is a very very dark comedy that is playful with convention and whilst not perfect (it lacks pace at points, Rockie can be annoying) it is beautifully crafted and well worth anyone's time.

I remember seeing this on TV a long time ago. The ending was very sad. Good movie.

I enoyed this one. A vulgar kid robs the bank. Simple plot, the movie is in the dialog.

The best thing Mischa Barton's done to date.

Pop-kulttuuria sanomallaan kritisoiva, mutta tyylillään myötäilevä draamathrilleri. Steadycam -kuvaus on taidokasta.

Raw, wild, and rough around the edges, but a mind blowing film on youth and "gun culture". VERY under publicized
