Undiscovered has about as much emotional depth and romantic sensibility as an episode of a Simpson sister MTV reality show.

There is not a single moment in the undistinguished Undiscovered that will do for [Pell] James what those couple of compassionate, moving minutes do in Jim Jarmusch's [Broken Flowers].
April 4, 2011
Prolific music-video director Meiert Avis is making his feature film directorial debut with Undiscovered -- and his obvious greenness shows.

How bad is it? Ashlee Simpson has a supporting role in it and her singing isn't the worst thing about it.

Undiscovered is a lifeless affair, as disinterested in its own characters as moviegoers are likely to be.
April 29, 2009
Some movies just deserve to be tucked away into obscurity. This is one of those movies.

It isn't bad enough to be good.

Undiscovered feels more like a pilot for a glossy nighttime soap on Fox -- probably one that would be canceled midseason -- than a feature film with even a modicum of discernible originality or depth.
March 1, 2007
It's all very tacky, overheated and derivative, like Los Angeles itself.

This thing makes Glitter look like gold.

Undiscovered would like to think of itself as a gritty, documentary-style indie about hopefuls on the fringes of the industry, but it's more like one of those lame hair-metal bands that went out and bought flannel shirts after Nirvana hit it big.

Ashlee's better at acting and singing than her more famous sister Jessica, but that's no great feat; might as well add that she'd make a better brain surgeon, too.

The script is every bit as literate as the content you'd find a back issue of "Blender," with just as much eye candy to bolster the thin material. Too bad this candy is sour.
September 4, 2005
Simpson steals the show -- which, admittedly, isn't saying much considering her stiffest competition comes by way of a skateboarding bulldog.
September 3, 2005
For a jerky, clich-riddled yarn about the evils of fame, Undiscovered has enough sensitivity, wit, and inadvertent guffaws to rise above its lame underpinnings.
September 2, 2005
Avis layers every sequence with pop singles and confuses poor camera focus and colored lighting for aesthetic flair.
September 1, 2005
Bottom line: I get paid to sit through this kind of rubbish. You don't.

By the time Peter Weller appears to do his William Burroughs routine, you can only assume an angry God has added up all your sins and this movie is your punishment.
September 1, 2005
Director Meiert Avis is a veteran helmer of music videos, so while it is not entirely surprising that he has no feel for character or structure, it is strange that he doesn't breathe much life into the frequent musical performances and montages either.

Like, sigh!
