Critic Reviews of "Dangerous Minds"Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Pfeiffer gives a funny, scrappy performance that makes you feel a committed teacher's fire to make a difference.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 13, 2001
The tale screenwriter Ronald Bass came up with, and the way director John N. Smith tells it, is stereotypical, predictable and simplified to the point of meaninglessness.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
If only the filmmakers had used some subtlety in telling the story, they could have done right by the real LouAnne Johnson.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Pfieffer is absurdly miscast: Sly Stallone would make a more plausible Mr. Chips than the frail, squeaky actress does a nine-year veteran of the Marine Corps.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
Stay home and watch Welcome Back Kotter. It's more enlightening.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The movie pretends to show poor black kids being bribed into literacy by Dylan and candy bars, but actually it is the crossover white audience that is being bribed with mind-candy in the form of safe words by the two Dylans.TheMovieReport.comDecember 26, 2006
None of it rings the slightest bit true; all of it insults the intelligence.eFilmCritic.comMarch 08, 2004
