Critic Reviews of "Bandslam"At the MoviesAugust 17, 2009
There is really just a lot to like here.Newark Star-LedgerAugust 14, 2009
Bandslam is hardly the definition of a great movie, but it is pleasant and bright and doesn't insult its audience's intelligence. And that's as rare and welcome as a well-crafted three-minute pop song.New York TimesAugust 14, 2009
Tidy, heartfelt direction by Todd Graff (Camp); astute song references; and a David Bowie cameo transcend the formula underpinnings and keep Bandslam buoyant, gratifying and, yes, rocking.San Francisco ChronicleAugust 14, 2009
The movie has a few good tunes and some charming comic dash, at least at first.Toronto StarAugust 14, 2009
Bandslam consistently exceeds current teen-flick standards thanks to its snarky humour, its strong musical sequences and its ability to convey the excitement the characters feel both about performing and forming new friendships.American ProfileSeptember 29, 2011
A message that never gets old: On stage or in high-school hallways, sometime it's the losers that turn out to be the real winners.MoviedexOctober 29, 2010
Fun without too much camp.The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)November 04, 2009
What keeps Bandslam afloat is the way its sweet moments find weird ways of stepping into convention.Windy City TimesAugust 26, 2009
Though it wears out its welcome as it teeters rather than rocks toward the finish line, there is something inherently enticing in the old "let's put on a show" formula it utilizes.Sacramento News & ReviewAugust 20, 2009
The music is the movie's best feature, but even that's not much...New York PressAugust 19, 2009
The barely hyped Bandslam must settle for simply being the best American movie this summer.
