Sleepover Reviews

July 13, 2004
Nussbaum's attempt to capture the 'tween zeitgeist fails: The Spice Girls-infused soundtrack is dated, and the feel-good progressiveness forced.
July 12, 2004
A terrible film.

Not overwhelmingly original or funny.
July 9, 2004
Just when the big screen could use an injection of frothy, giggly girl power -- all in the name of a covert feminist message, of course -- Sleepover squanders that promise with a blah story and even bigger bummer of a take-home message.

Fairly standard tween-oriented fare.

If the pre-adolescents in your life don't have anything better to do than watch this movie, maybe the time has come to teach them hopscotch.

There's little in the movie to like, either for tween girls or the unlucky parents who accompany them.

If ever a movie could be charged with imperiling the morals of a minor, it's probably Sleepover.

A lazy attempt to snare some preadolescent allowance money, Sleepover earns little more than a few bored yawns.

Never comes close to living up to its slight potential.

July 9, 2004
The movie is uneven, but it has scored well during previews, and there's a reason: Sleepover fills a niche-audience void.

The makers of Sleepover have read the 'tweeners film plot handbook and adhere to it closely.

A lame and labored comedy.

July 9, 2004
The multiplexes haven't been jammed with this many repetitively single-minded portrayals of young people since the gangsta craze of the early 1990s.

Sleepover is as corny as Kansas in the fall.

July 8, 2004
A skillfully made teen comedy with such an endearing sensibility that it's fun even for those old enough to be the grandparents of its stars.

A banal, relatively innocent comedy aimed at 'tween girls.

July 8, 2004
How young do you have to be before you want to be older? With this wispy pubescent comedy, Hollywood has come up with a number: 14.

First- time director Joe Nussbaum keeps it all buzzing along at such a clip that if one bit falls flat, the next one kicks the film back into gear.

July 8, 2004
Too silly for teens who are old enough to drive and too boy-centric for girls still in grade school, the comedy is predictable but cute.
July 8, 2004
Screenwriter Elisa Bell attempts to modernize the proceedings by dropping in Valley-girl lingo that only comes off as archaic.
July 8, 2004
Unlikely to win much of a following beyond its pubescent target audience.

Shamelessly predictable, morally questionable, Sleepover will quickly induce drowsiness in anyone over age 12.
July 7, 2004
Sour patch of candy-coated crud.

July 2, 2004
Essentially sleepwalks its way through a strictly by-the-numbers premise.
June 29, 2004
Even by the notoriously flexible standards of bubblegum teen pics, Sleepover comes off as wildly unbelievable and often astonishingly silly.
