Critic Reviews of "Rent"New York ObserverDecember 21, 2005
The movie, directed without a personal stamp of any kind by Chris Columbus, is so slick that the grime comes from a spray can and the grungy bohemian costumes look rented from a Betsey Johnson boutique sale.SlateDecember 08, 2005
It's real -- and, on screen, it's really cringe-worthy. Not quite Phantom of the Opera cringe-worthy, but not as much fun to blow raspberries at, either.Ebert & RoeperNovember 29, 2005
The film captures the beautiful spirit and the raw energy of Larson's play, and it respects the wonderful, gorgeous, life-affirming music.ReelViewsNovember 28, 2005
RENT is mediocre and recommended only to those who can claim a familiarity with the play.Houston ChronicleNovember 28, 2005
A mediocre, unimaginative, inefficient filmmaker, Columbus delivers a Rent that isn't so much bad as perfunctory.Christian Science MonitorNovember 28, 2005
As directed by Columbus, Jonathan Larson's East Village reworking of 'La Boheme' in the age of AIDS retains its calisthenic pathos, as well as most of its original cast, but you'd have to be a real Rent-Head to envisage Academy Awards in its future.ComingSoon.netApril 25, 2011
As strong as the music is, there's not much tying Rent together; it's a series of sequences, not a story.CinePassionSeptember 01, 2009
A TV-special metallic ring hangs over the whole production, skimming surfaces without touching emotionCinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
If a bunch of models living in a huge apartment without income is America, then I live in Bizarro World...Index.hrJune 22, 2007

Recommended, but only for shut-ins who can't make it to a local live theater production of the play.Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
Crafted with obvious care and deep love by director Chris Columbus and his team.
