A smart, sweet, and altogether smashing evocation of teenage girlhood.

Christian Science Monitor
Lively acting and good-natured feminism lift this lightweight comedy a notch above the norm.
70
Under the candy coating and girl group soundtrack, the film acknowledges some hard truths about women and education that haven't changed much since the '60s. But it never loses sight of having a good time, and the girls are great.
67
Entertainment Weekly
A knock-kneed but likable just-for-girls drama set in 1963 that promotes single-sex institutions as the best breeding ground for future female senators and filmmakers.
50
Surprisingly pleasant, thanks to smart, unstereotyped performances.
25
New York Post
You have to sit through 90 minutes that feel like three hours.
