Critic Reviews of "We the Party"USA TodayApril 06, 2012
Every time it dabbles in real-world teen issues like sex and drugs, it returns to a fanciful high school where kids quote Nietzsche and play acoustic guitar on lunch breaks.New York Daily NewsApril 06, 2012
Mario Van Peebles' self-produced project comes frustratingly close to his high-minded aims.Hollywood ReporterApril 06, 2012
Heavy-handed teen drama mixes moralizing and partying to uneven effect.New York PostApril 06, 2012
A good-natured high school dramedy that borrows from many others...Washington PostApril 06, 2012
With the raunch of "American Pie" and the heart of an after-school special, the comedy turns out to be a lot less than the sum of its parts.New York TimesApril 05, 2012
Van Peebleses ... populate the movie, and all are serviceable enough as actors; it would be nice to see them in less earnest, more original material.CraveOnlineAugust 22, 2012
I have to admit there is something kind of disarming about its corny earnestness. Van Peebles clearly invested himself in the material, and damn it all if he wasn't going to wring that screenplay for all it was worth.ColeSmithey.comApril 08, 2012
[VIDEO] There are a few moments during writer/director Mario Van Peebles's overly didactic high school drama when you can almost glimpse the good film buried beneath all the artifice.Film Journal InternationalApril 06, 2012
Initially promising teen comedy-drama, featuring African-American kids not in the ghetto for once, soon undermines itself in a welter of clichés and empty gloss.RedEyeApril 05, 2012
Joining two overweight characters in a relationship just to make a joke about them enjoying an all-you-can-eat buffet hardly qualifies as progressive, intellectual comedy.AALBC.comApril 01, 2012
Unfolding like a 21st Century update of African-American coming-of-age classics House Party (1990) and Love Jones (1997), We the Party might very well come to serve as the seminal adventure capturing the angst and aspirations of the Millennial Generation.Slant MagazineMarch 29, 2012
While We the Party can be insensitive, or blind, to the misogyny and homophobia of the general culture (the token gay teen is a finger-snapping, head-bobbing fashionista), it takes the issues of race and class quite seriously.
