  • Critic Reviews
    "[T]hroughout its first two acts, BANDSLAM is charming, sweet, and funny..." -- Grade: B-
    A.V. Club

    "[A]s the movie's sweet, geeky hero, newcomer Gaelan Connell excels in wry conversations with the always-welcome Lisa Kudrow, who plays his loving mother." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    "The payoffs are in the details....This one feels both morally uplifting and a teensy bit realistic, lived-in -- neither heavily reliant on glib pop-cult references nor so sanitized that we don't believe in the people."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Both Aly Michalka and Vanessa Hudgens are musicians, which makes the rehearsal and performance segments convincing....It's charming..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Tidy, heartfelt direction by Todd Graff; astute song references; and a David Bowie cameo transcend the formula underpinnings and keep BANDSLAM buoyant, gratifying and, yes, rocking."
    New York Times
