Critic Reviews for The House of Tomorrow

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (9)

  • It's an emotionally satisfying experience that brings to life a group of appealing characters and allows them to grow and expand in front of the lens.

    July 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The boys are terrific, particularly Butterfield, who makes something wonderful out of discovering a grilled cheese sandwich and a can of soda

  • Part of what's missing in "The House of Tomorrow" is the acerbic punk spirit that inspires its two heroes, which could have been remedied by a sharper script.

    May 23, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's so amiably predictable that you end up wanting to throw some Motrhead at it, just to see what happens.

  • It's not until the end that everything truly lines up, with Fuller positioned as an original punk. But as a film about punk rock, living on the edge and coming into your own, The House of Tomorrow is a strong debut from Livolsi.

  • A charming if not exactly crucial coming-of-age dramedy about the freedom to be found in three chords.

  • Fine but not especially inspired. Still, seeing this gifted group of actors together, making the most of a fairly pedestrian screenplay, is enjoyable enough.

  • The film has its heart in the right place. However, even at 85 minutes, it becomes a slog to get through the myriad of cliches.
