Hollywood Reporter


A fun-enough teen action comedy.

New York Times


An amusing comedy for a certain demographic, but because of its plot and cast it might instead draw a crowd that will greet it with contempt.

Los Angeles Times


Clearly confused about its intended audience, starting with the icky title, a pun on the porn label that selects and photographs models to emphasize their youth.
