Critic Reviews for The Preppie Connection

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

The movie needs the audacity of a "Trainspotting" to lift it above the norm.

April 14, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A dramatized real-life scandal of 1980s prep-school drug dealing plays like a tepid compilation of fictive cliches in The Preppie Connection.

March 30, 2016 | Full Review…

As written, Toby is somewhat of an empty slate, and Mann doesn't do much to fill in the blanks.

March 24, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This film fails even to evoke the '80s in costumes, soundtrack or other atmospherics.

March 18, 2016 | Full Review…

Nearly everything about "The Preppie Connection" - from the high-school class war to the flat, explanatory narration - has been cribbed from other, better films.

March 17, 2016 | Full Review…

Toby is so un-self-aware that his journey seems like mere obtuseness; what the film has to say about youthful degeneracy is less than zero.

March 17, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
