thumbs up

"A frothy end-of-summer treat, a family comedy about school bullies, second chances, grudges and growing up...In the end, the film leaves you in a dance-happy mood."

- Lana Berkowitz

thumbs down

"Like so many Disney movies, You Again exalts shallow, materialistic values, then tries to camouflage its essentially poisonous content with several layers of sugar coating and weepy reconciliation. Once you’ve consumed its empty calories, expect a sickly aftertaste."

- Stephen Holden
