Raises the bar for movies geared to teens.

New York Daily News
What is unusual and exciting about the movie is the assemblage of raw talent in the cast.

Philadelphia Inquirer
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.

The movie's enthusiasm is as indelible and shiny as the lip gloss its star wears to bed.

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

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

Actor John Corbett, so clean-cut in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and "Raising Helen," goes surprisingly scruffy here as someone who apparently studied music under Grizzly Adams.

Chicago Tribune
Worst of all, though, is the movie's moral maneuvering.

Miami Herald
Loaded with so much drama that the story sinks into a grim, sloppy soap-opera mix.
25
Her dad was right about one thing. Something terrible did happen to her (Duff) in Los Angeles. She made this movie.

New York Post
Overlong, blandly soporific.
