Critic Reviews for White Frog

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

The opulent Beverly Hills setting, in which every character lives in a mansion and drives a luxury car, is offered up without comment or, oddly enough, any sort of visual style to complement it.

Like getting a half-dozen undercooked after-school specials at once, Quentin Lee's "White Frog" serves up a medley of messages and themes while generating no discernible dramatic heft.

Audience Reviews for White Frog


A heart felt little indie with alot of great acting and a good story to boot. It's not perfect, but it tugged at my heart strings in all the right places. This is a film that hasn't gotten any hype, but I recommend it.

★★1/2 (out of four) A well meaning and emotional story that is hampered by an overly earnest and sappy delivery. The idea behind the plot has promise, but needs a better, deeper telling to carry the movie to a higher level. Nick (Booboo Stewart) is a high school freshman with Asperger's syndrome who idolizes his older brother Chaz. When Chaz is killed in a horrific accident it sends his younger brother on a journey to discover who Chaz really was. He tries to befriend Chaz's friends, but is not warmly welcomed by all of them. Nick's search leads him to a center for troubled teens where he learns things about his brother that he wished he didn't discover. Some good stuff here. The perfromances are well meaning and likeable, particulary Joan Chen as Nick's mother and Tyler Posey as Chaz's friend Doug. The subject matter is good, but unfortunately it is not focused and the tone makes it feel like a extra special after school special.
