Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Variety

    Exhilarating, heartbreaking and righteous, Waiting for Superman is also a kind of high-minded thriller: Can the American education system be cured?

  • 90

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    By showing how fiercely dedicated idealists are making a difference, it is a call to arms.

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    Much of the film is told compellingly and heartbreakingly through the wide-eyed innocence of five children.
