Critic Reviews for Standing Ovation

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6)

Parents and anyone beyond adolescence will find it an intolerable attempt to cash in by imitating films they've seen before.

Top Critic

For us grinchy adults out there without children to sedate, the whole thing feels slightly less like a movie than like the filmed record of a mutiny at a juvie talent agency.

Top Critic

Despite its absurdly optimistic title, Standing Ovation deserves a resounding chorus of boos, and maybe a few well-aimed tomatoes.

Standing Ovation is an innovative film in the sense that every minute or so it comes up with a different way of being annoying.

Top Critic

A glittery string of backstage conventions. Backstabbing! Pushy parents! Precocious stars! Blind ambition! But if you're a tween (and don't watch Glee), the cliches will be new to you.

It's a bubblegum mess, lacking structure, coherence,and any sense of drama. But it manages moments of daft fun, sometimes in spite of itself.

Audience Reviews for Standing Ovation

Standing Ovation is terrible in my opinion and I'm sure that the movie was going to be a horror because it was hard for me to sit through this so-called movie, it's more like a one hour tutorial on how to waste your time.

what was this? it was extremly terrible actors tossed into a high school musical plot. and then there was an extremly random mystery going on, on the side. this was a bad movie that had had catchy but lame songs

My kids and I had a great time watching this movie! My oldest daughter still has the songs stuck in her head. I'm having a hard time believing how harsh some of the critics reviews are on here. It's a movie for kids, its wholesome and is a great escape from all the violence and adult content that is streaming through the TV in my living room everyday.
