    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Great trash, one of those mediocre movies that in its own crass way is more enjoyable than most things that get nominated for Oscars. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Preposterous collegiate drama that exists simply to show pretty girls kissing, pretty boys undressing and pretty people of every sexual orientation drinking, doing drugs and otherwise wreaking postadolescent havoc. show more

    Loren King Boston Globe

    Tawdry, trashy yawn-fest that makes the viewer long for the days when bad girls were dangerous dames with sultry style. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    90 minutes of ridiculous, silly fun. Of course, it's still a very bad movie. show more

    Scott Tobias The A.V. Club

    A lurid, unsavory mix of Reefer Madness hysteria, drive-in sleaze, and the queasy morality of '80s slasher film. show more

    Michael Atkinson Village Voice

    Clearly the product of an editing-room scramble, New Best Friend is a self-lambasting farce, despite Kirshner's passionate college try at establishing a third dimension in a brain-dead movie flatland. show more
