New York Times
Top Critic

Johnny Severin and Nicholas David Brandt's ... clever and original script takes an unexpected turn at nearly every intersection, resulting in a funny and big-hearted coming-of-age romance.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Replete with deadly fart jokes, projectile-vomit jokes, accidental-boob-grab jokes, and various other sources of alleged humor that real-life outcasts wouldn't voluntarily go anywhere near.

AV Club
Top Critic

The Jim Belushi of high-school romantic comedies: indifferent, kind of exhausted.

If you are ready for some laughs and almost inhumanly able to go along with the jokes, you will chuckle now and then in spite of yourself.

Another entry in the "Why Should We Care?" department, The Secret Lives of Dorks feels like something we have all been through too many times before.

Audience Reviews for The Secret Lives Of Dorks


Starts a little slow then really takes off. Like all of the main characters, fun high school movie for younger audiences, and great appearances from Belushi, Tilly and a cameo from the NFL for older audiences.
