    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    The result is a well-intentioned mess -- a dishonest fantasy that begins with promise and gets more frustrating with every scene. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Somehow, this rollicking day in the life of a band of skateboarding Latino punk-rockers doesn't exude the voyeuristic smarm of previous Clark forays. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Some moments of off-the-cuff beauty aren't enough to mask the creepy heart of Larry Clark's latest look at outcast kids. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Ultimately more laughable than illuminating, at times approaching a level of camp commensurate with John Waters. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Wassup Rockers is amateurish, but without the redeeming qualities found in "Kids" and "Bully." show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    It's hard to believe this shoddy, dishonest mess is Clark's sixth feature film, and not the unpromising debut of a rank amateur. show more
