It's New York, it's about a life in lower NY that is changing. Anybody who knows this part of NY will identify with it. The movie stays with you. Loved the show as well

Washington Post
Onstage, Rent is a series of power surges, but in the movie the songs leave you flat. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Rent is commodified faux bohemia on a platter, eliciting the same kind of numbing soul-sadness as children's beauty pageants, tiny dogs in expensive boots, Mahatma Gandhi in Apple ads. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Often dramatically jumbled and musically muddled - but every time the film seemed ready to tip into awfulness, the sneer on my lips was trumped by the lump in my throat. Full Review
David Edelstein
I found it tiresomely undramatic, even saccharine. Not to mention monotonous. Full Review
David Rooney
Director Chris Columbus has pasted the grungy "La Boheme" update onto film with slavish respect for the original material but a shortage of stylistic imagination and raw emotions. Full Review
