Raising Victor Vargas Reviews

July 5, 2003
Suffers because it is naive and disjointed.
April 21, 2003
An irritatingly acted, cookie cutter story that takes great delight in its own grittiness and perceived smarts. Peter Sollet's wheels-in-the-mud script evidences no basic understanding of teen reality.

Features strong performances, but inadequate writing and directorial preparation leave it dramatically stagnant.

It's a sweet movie told with unswerving honesty, but it never quite manages to be compelling.
