Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    While films are admired for making fantasy real, some manage a reverse, unwanted kind of alchemy, turning involving reality into meaningless piffle.

  • 50

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Pfeiffer tackles the part with obvious dedication, but she's thwarted from the get-go by the heavily proscribed nature of the role as written.

  • 40

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    False and condescending films in this genre are nothing new, but Dangerous Minds steamrollers its way over some real talent.
