The film owes a lot to "Napoleon Dynamite," though it could have borrowed more of the underlying sweetness of Jared Hess' film, and less of other things, like its eyebrow-raising treatment of race. Full Review

New York Daily News
As generic and forgettable as its title, this half-hearted attempt at a teen comedy feels like a term paper you might buy online: poorly written and cribbed from a million other sources. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
Wavers between extreme silliness and unbearable earnestness. Full Review
Neil Genzlinger
The New York Times
Among the problems with the humorless comedy General Education is that the lead character's sister is more interesting than he is, and she spends much of her screen time as a mute mime. Full Review
Nick Schager
Slant Magazine
Too derivative to be amusing and too earnest to be parodic, it assumes the form of countless other teen comedies minus any wit or drama. Full Review
