Overburdened with too many characters and a manufactured conclusion, "Twelve" wastes a solid performance by Chace Crawford.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.0/5

There are absolutely no surprises in "Twelve." None. And the characters are as familiar as the story--a stock collection of "prep school" males and females that look as if they've never sat through a class in their lives.

Give Schumacher credit for making a movie that is, at the very least, unique in its failure.

The film version of Twelve is quite the opposite of the book, a dull and thoughtless ride with a sad excuse for a climax.

Joel Schumacher's talent exceeds his ambition in Twelve.

An unsavory piece of dreary, mindless ick from a director who can't seem to get his act together these days. That is, if he ever had an act to begin with.

One of the characters...astutely describes herself as 'shallow and narcissistic.' So's the movie.

Sinks under the weight of its own pretensions.

Want to punch the narrator in the face? Good, we're on the same page.

Like most of its characters, Twelve is too cool for school.

August 6, 2010
Another disappointing portrait of rich spoiled kids based on an estimable novel, though you can't blame the actors for the shallow, glitzy tale, directed by Joel Schumacher.

Bleak, intense look at the high life of NYC's young elites.

The result isn't awful, but it is awfully familiar. When will someone make a film about being old, poor and ugly in Omaha?

Twelve is so much less than zero.

It all comes off as faintly absurd.

It feels as shopworn as a dusty VHS tape of Less Than Zero.

Schumacher can't keep himself from the kind of vibey camera and editing flourishes that facilitate only viewer numbness...

Plays like a melodramatic rip-off of Bret Easton Ellis books about insufferable kids obsessed with money, drugs and themselves.

This movie's like an audiobook, accompanied by visuals from a 7-year-old copy of Vogue.
