Critic Reviews for Times Square

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Until something more objectionable hits the fan, "Times Square" will suffice as the new movie most worth ducking.

Socially irresponsible and refreshingly optimistic: a Wizard of Oz for the '80s.

Times Square rarely comes together into anything more than a good idea that fails, but there are times when it seems on the brink of wonderful things.

As played by Tim Curry, Johnny is so insufferable he very nearly makes the rest of the movie bearable by comparison.

Not a great movie, but it's a top tier punk rock tribute.

Jan 2, 2017 | Full Review…

...the film not only features a killer '80's soundtrack but it celebrates the pre-Disneyfied version of New York City, and Times Square in particular, just as forces like the fictional David Pearl were campaigning to change it.

Audience Reviews for Times Square

½

Had never heard of this one, caught it on TV by chance. Was quite surprised to find it's quite a popular, but not widely known cult movie. Actually, it's pretty bad - Nicky in particular, I found really grating with that voice...BUT... There is something about it. I can't rave, but I can't quite write it off, either. It has a hinted at lesbian love story at its core, and supposed mental illness. It was probably pretty out there for 1980. The New York setting is cool, but obviously dated. Actually, the whole movie is badly dated, and not terribly realistic, but I can see why people like it. For me, not so much, one off viewing. But it is interesting.
