San Francisco Chronicle
Writing and directing her first feature, Jenkins mines her life for nug gets everyone can relate to. Full Review
David Edelstein
Slate
The Slums of Beverly Hills never gels, but it has a likable spirit, and it's exceedingly easy on the eye, with lots of pretty girls and wry evocations of '70s fashions and decor. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Ms. Jenkins, who makes her writing and directing debut with wit and confidence, keeps the small surprises frequent and the coming-of-age perspective sharp. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
Variety
A notch or two above the level of a TV sitcom, Slums of Beverly Hills, Tamara Jenkins' semi-autobiographical feature directorial debut, is a bawdy, extremely broad comedy. Full Review
Jack Mathews
Los Angeles Times
It feels like a vague, upscale knockoff of "The Beverly Hillbillies," and Jenkins' eagerness to please with class-conscious jokiness often comes at the expense of her solid underlying issues. Full Review
