New York Post
A slumber-party classic that belongs on the same shelf as "Bring It On" and "10 Things I Hate About You." This high-school comedy should do for its 20-year-old star, Brittany Snow, what those movies did for Kirsten Dunst and Julia Stiles.
75
Surprisingly entertaining, if less than original.

Miami Herald
A briskly-paced, refreshing kick in this season of draggy, two-hour-plus movies. The film is smarter and funnier than its trailers indicate, and, as a bonus, there are no superheroes, pirates or Wilson brothers to be found.

Premiere
Although mixing teen humor with sentiment will never be done as well as in "American Pie," John Tucker Must Die has just enough heart to entertain the "MySpace" set.

Something to see and occasionally even to laugh at.

The movie starts out cleverly enough but grows insipid as the girls' antics become more predictable.

New York Daily News
Every woman falls for the wrong guy at least once in her life. This week, it's Betty Thomas' turn.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Too cute by half, the high school comedy John Tucker Must Die is just so likable, so, um, cute - in that helpless-bunny-wabbit sort of way - that to diss it would be to admit being a heartless, cynical Bambi-killer.

The Hollywood Reporter
Lame and unconvincing teen comedy.
25
Entertainment Weekly
Astonishingly (and offensively), the witless ending comes down harder on the women than the cad.
0
Awful.
