Critic Reviews of "School Ties"Chicago ReaderOctober 15, 2007
This is a bewildering mixture of fairly accomplished storytelling, awkward contrivances in the script, and lies in the overall conception so egregious they undercut any pretensions the film might have to social seriousness.Time OutJune 24, 2006
More notable perhaps for a roster of future stars and Oscar winners than for its unexceptional plot, this well executed film nevertheless has its charms.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
School Ties has a leafy, genteel look that is somehow less than convincing, perhaps because the hairdos are too tidy and the resemblances to other prep-school stories too clear.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Good intentions go for naught as director Robert Mandel (F/X) pounds home every contrivance in the script by Darryl Ponicsan (Taps).Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Director Robert Mandel, best known for the flashy techno-thriller F/X, brings a surprisingly sensitive touch to this earnest story of intolerance.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
There's a dramatic imbalance to Dick Wolf and Darryl Ponicsan's screenplay.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
Stirring movie may be too heavy for some tweens.TV GuideOctober 15, 2007
In the real world, it's more likely that Greene's working-class background would work harder against his acceptance at a snooty prep school than his religious beliefs, but School Ties largely ignores this angle.Empire MagazineOctober 15, 2007
The boys put in fine performances but sadly the script lacks the depth of what could have been a challenging story.Film4October 15, 2007
Fraser, O'Donnell, Damon and Affleck would all go on to have much hyped careers, and occasionally make better films than this overbearingly worthy classroom drama.EmanuelLevy.ComOctober 01, 2006
Though well-intentioned as a message picture, the film is too schematic and predictable, and ultimately may be more significant in featuring a new cohort of actors, including Brandon Frazer, Chris O'Donnell, Matt Damon, and others.eFilmCritic.comApril 03, 2005
Well-intentioned (and only occasionally mawkish) tale of college-boy anti-semitism.
