Critic Reviews for Status Update

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Starts off funny but becomes a frustrating exercise in déjà vu for anyone who's graduated from high school or seen a movie.

As delete-worthy as its social media inspirations.

If ever a film demanded to be viewed on a phone, it's this one.

Top Critic

Little more than a feature-length tween sitcom episode, Status Update is not exactly a good movie. However, its script is earnest enough and its cast is endearing enough that it's just a better editor away from being not bad.

August 27, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This teen comedy with a "be yourself" message is slickly artificial, grinding painfully through extremely well-worn plot mechanics and essentially failing to follow its own message.
