Ebert & Roeper: Read more

Philip Wuntch, Dallas Morning News: About as good as you'd expect. But never as good as you'd prefer. Read more

Peter Howell, Toronto Star: Watching a teen flick as morally bankrupt as Sugar & Spice ... you have to wonder if Hollywood is really getting the message about gratuitous film violence. Read more

A.O. Scott, New York Times: You get the feeling that it's bad on purpose, which makes it, given the number of teenage movies that are terrible by accident, not bad at all. Read more

Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Read more

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times: Amusingly subversive, thanks to sharp writing and direction. Read more

Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle: A setup stretched as thinly over feature length as the average movie-bound Saturday Night Live sketch. Read more

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly: It's fun in its raunchy unwieldiness. Read more

Rick Groen, Globe and Mail: Of course, an unfunny comedy is hardly news. However, even by Tinseltown's impoverished standards, one so utterly bereft is something of a rarity, and thus perversely interesting. Read more

Gene Seymour, Newsday: A laugh-out-loud winter's treat. Read more

James Berardinelli, ReelViews: A frothy motion picture that offers moments of guilty pleasure but isn't good enough to earn a recommendation. Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times: It's alive and risky and saucy. Read more

Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle: It means to be knowing and cynical but is just callow. Read more

Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune: The best thing that can be said about the Minnesota- made comedy Sugar & Spice is that there's no reference to the fact that it was made in Minnesota. Read more

Brendan Kelly, Variety: Quite a smart little film with a surprising satirical edge. Read more

Caleb Crain, Village Voice: Struggles with the existential challenge of individuating five (then six, then seven) perky white heterosexual girls wearing identical aquamarine miniskirts and halter tops. Read more
