I liked this movie because it was a really good, sweet story. It was alot like school of rock which is one of my fave movies. I also liked it because it was very funny especialy when will was writing his first letter to David Bowie.

Do not agree with ROBBIE61987. Agree with TAYLEYSAM. Since I went to see this movie my whole style in music has changed. Go see Bandslam. A 53 year old man was there and he enjoyed it very much. It introduces you to a way you can enjoy old music today!

Washington Post
the script's earnest intelligence and the actors' charm (Connell, Hudgens and Kudrow are especially fun to watch) make this film an entertaining ode to teenage joie de vivre. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
The least offensive teen movie in ages. Full Review
Andy Webster
The New York Times
Buoyant, gratifying and, yes, rocking. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
The late John Hughes would have liked Bandslam, an upbeat high school musical that plays like a garage-band cover of "The Breakfast Club." Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Best of all is newcomer Connell, the kind of charismatic kid who would have been cast in "Freaks and Geeks" ten years ago. Full Review
