Critic Reviews of "Bad Reputation (2018)"GuardianOctober 25, 2018
The big treat is seeing Jett herself talk and watching her still-strong bond with producer and best friend Kenny Laguna: two leather-clad old mates, constantly bickering but inseparable.Time OutOctober 03, 2018
Jett is so free, she doesn't feel the need to speak to her private life. In her own way, that's as rock 'n' roll as it gets.RogerEbert.comSeptember 28, 2018
Joan Jett deserves a great rock doc. This isn't it.Globe and MailSeptember 27, 2018
Bad Reputation roars through Jett's 60 years like one of her songs, snarling and unsubtle.Los Angeles TimesSeptember 27, 2018
From Jett's groundbreaking recordings with the Runaways to how she defied a narrow-minded media establishment, "Bad Reputation" is a case study in how a musician stays relevant.Hollywood ReporterSeptember 27, 2018
The film is a disappointment, and has limited value for viewers hoping to experience (or relive) the years in which Jett proved a woman could rock as hard as the boys.Cinema CrazedDecember 31, 2018
I'm fine reveling in the almost supernatural Joan Jett I just wish that we could have been given a peek behind the curtain.CineVueOctober 30, 2018
Shedding light on a story of 70s rock and roll that is really a study of a turning tide in the fight for gender equality tunnelled through music.Backseat MafiaOctober 29, 2018
Bad Reputation embodies the energy and zest which Jett injects into her music.The Film ExperienceOctober 29, 2018
There's also little exploration of Jett's sexuality nor the more salacious parts of her drug addictions that she ultimately came out the other side of intact (if there were any scars, emotionally or physically, we don't learn about them).Observer (UK)October 29, 2018
Jett says she wants to offer her fans "a primal release". A pity, then, that this film about her is so repressed.Times (UK)October 26, 2018
The life and career of the groundbreaking rocker Joan Jett gets the dreary documentary treatment as the director Kevin Kerslake marches obediently through her career...with nothing less than wide-eyed adoration.
