Washington Post
The young cast members are full of attitude and heart. But the film is long on flashy dance sequences and short on depth, character and craft. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
The movie's best moments are between Banderas and the kids. When the plot shifts to reveal the students' back stories (one has a prostitute mother, another a drunken father), the story becomes a melodramatic rehash of other movies, like "Fame" or "Rent." Full Review
James Berardinelli
One of the year's most uninspired inspirational stories. Full Review
John Anderson
Well-intentioned, feel-good urban tale. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Corny and uncool. Initially, it doesn't matter. Banderas is so winning in the lead that the film's early scenes are almost as persuasive as one of his lectures. Full Review
