Los Angeles Times
A fitfully engaging effort that is most successful as a performance piece for actors Kat Dennings and Reece Thompson. Full Review
Ernest Hardy
Village Voice
Daydream is decently acted, overwritten, slickly shot, decked out with the requisite indie soundtrack, and propped up with angst-ridden poses and pouting lips. It's also another film in which on-screen teens, especially the nubile femme fatale at the center, are but vessels to showcase the screenwriter's irony-drenched, self-satisfied intellect. Full Review
Joe Leydon
Variety
Charged with alternating currents of teen angst, sardonic wit, nervous dread and impudent sensuality, Daydream Nation suggests "Juno" as reimagined by David Lynch, or a funnier, sunnier "Donnie Darko." Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Writer-director Michael Goldbach fills the story with too many distractions, but Dennings, known for "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist," is feline and fun. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The A.V. Club
It's a film about teen angst that's too caught up in its characters' state of mind to see its way through to the other side. Full Review
