Critic Reviews of "Charlie Bartlett"Wall Street JournalFebruary 22, 2008
The movie as a whole is a sweet pill to swallow.USA TodayFebruary 22, 2008
Charlie Bartlett is a refreshingly entertaining character study that refuses to dumb down its youthful cast or bury their concerns in service of a catchy soundtrack.Toronto StarFebruary 22, 2008
The characters remain halfway between genuine comic creations and realistic individuals, and the whole narrative feels artificial, stuck in the tension between being a morality play and a freewheeling comedy.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 22, 2008
Those waiting for the arrival of the next Juno may want to skip Charlie Bartlett, a relentlessly earnest teen film about a 17-year-old misfit who's been tossed out of one prep school after another for bad behavior.Orlando SentinelFebruary 22, 2008
Imagine an R-rated Ferris Bueller with only the most annoying parts of the younger Matthew Broderick's screen persona emphasized and you'll draw a bead on Bartlett.AV ClubFebruary 22, 2008
Watching Charlie Bartlett only makes Wes Anderson's work seem more accomplished by comparison, because it underscores that thin line separating the agreeably fanciful from the overbearingly precious.East Bay ExpressApril 28, 2011
Writer Gustin Nash and director Jon Poll have their Ferris Bueller thing working perfectly, with a few 2008 wrinkles.Times-PicayuneSeptember 04, 2009
There are sweet moments, and there are funny moments, but it all just becomes so eye-rollingly calculated that it's hard to appreciate.GuardianOctober 18, 2008
The promising themes peter out as the film loses direction, though, and Bartlett is neither sympathetic enough to root for nor dumb enough to laugh at.San Diego MetropolitanOctober 18, 2008
Lightweight fare, but a pleasant outing.Entertainment InsidersOctober 18, 2008
Charlie Bartlett plays it too safe.
