Chicago Sun-Times
I wanted to hug this movie. It takes such a risky journey and never steps wrong. It creates specific, original, believable, lovable characters, and meanders with them through their inconsolable days, never losing its sense of humor.

Entertainment Weekly
A buoyant, funny, and disarmingly humane comedy of beautiful losers in revolt.
90
Rolling Stone
Let the unsettling secrets of this outrageously funny and steadily engrossing meditation on the life of two high school misfits after graduation catch you by surprise. It's that good.

Wall Street Journal
Smart, surpassingly odd, extremely funny and mysteriously endearing at the same time.
88
Ghost World draws super, natural performances.

Philadelphia Inquirer
There's a loneliness at the heart of this world, and Ghost World, that's really touching -- and a bit scary, too.

New York Daily News
Funny, insightful, unpredictable and blessed with pitch-perfect performances, Ghost World is one of the year's best movies.
88
Miami Herald
A unique bond still develops between the two outcasts, leading to an unexpected resolution that ends this subtle, deeply humane movie on an ambiguous, but unmistakably hopeful, note.
88
New York Post
As hip, funny and truthful a sleeper as has ever flown under Tinseltown's radar.

Boston Globe
Whatever portion of the alienated teen angst championship Thora Birch left unclaimed after ''American Beauty,'' she nails down brilliantly in Ghost World.
75
Bests most other teen comedies right off the bat. If you got a kick out of "Crumb," this film will crack you up.
