Time Out New York
Director Max Mayer doesn’t find a way to make the ritual traumas of adolescence feel new again. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Simplistic plotting, pedestrian visuals and poorly-handled melodrama do lend the project a cheap, made-for-TV feel, which is underscored by the fact that Danes and Marsden don’t seem obliged to turn in their best work. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
Familiar faces in supporting roles don't do much for the commercial prospects of this modest film, which feels like a made-for-TV version of the prototypical Sundance-aspiring quest for identity. Full Review
Kyle Smith
New York Post
Though darker elements loom in the shadows, nothing in this painfully sincere film is remotely affecting; just think of it as “My So-Called Strife.” Full Review
Stephen Holden
The New York Times
Just when its parts should come together, As Cool as I Am crumbles to bits. Full Review
