Rotten: The humor is relentlessly cruel, smug, and disconnected from any sense of how human beings might behave in similar situations.-Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, May 30, 2007
Rotten: The movie gets stuck as a run-of-the-mill teen revenge comedy.-, Film4, May 30, 2007
Fresh: What lifts the production above the run-of-the-mill is swift direction by Martha Coolidge, who has a firm grasp over the manic material.-, Variety, May 30, 2007
Fresh: It does make you wonder if the drive of the US education system is ultimately to develop better weapons of mass-destruction, though Coolidge's movie is too hazily good-natured to capitalise on the tougher aspects of the material.-Geoff Andrew, Time Out, June 24, 2006
