Critic Reviews for Sounds Like Teen Spirit
Johnson serves the story well and strikes a welcome tone by taking his subjects just seriously enough. Very enjoyable - but no more than an extended 'Pop Idol' for cinema.
Johnson's film is meant to be a heartwarming and funny look at young dreamers and the realities of their lives. But there's something distasteful in portraying these kids as lovable losers.
This is another moderately interesting documentary following some obscure competition in which there will be grieving losers, exultant winners and little widespread acclaim.
Johnson never hits on a story that's worth telling, and his arch interjections about the contest marking the end of war in Europe hit all the wrong notes. Where's Terry Wogan when you need him?
This is a warm and very funny film that completely wins us over as it progresses.
