As for Duff, she's bright-eyed and bubbly, though her singing talents are nowhere near as awesome as Raise Your Voice's who's-going-to-win-the-big-scholarship plotline requires.

Fame this film ain't.

Should attract Duff's core audience but not much more than that.

Variety
Duff makes an engaging heroine, but her immaculately coifed blonde locks and undiminished lip gloss remind viewers just how much of a star vehicle this actually is.

Hilary Duff makes me long for the comparatively Dostoyevskian depths of Sandra Dee.

L.A. Weekly
Duff, who became a teen-set role model portraying Lizzie McGuire for Disney, has sold over four million records and toured to packed houses, yet screenwriter Sam Schreiber and director Sean McNamara, both making feature debuts, set her up to sing just one song through to completion.

Hilary Duff can't rise above an overbearing script with underdeveloped roles.
38
Loaded with so much drama that the story sinks into a grim, sloppy soap-opera mix.

Village Voice
The God-squad answer to Todd Graff's "Camp."

The A.V. Club
Dreadful.
