More Info:
  • Steve Persall

    I adore The Perks of Being a Wallflower for its honest, unsentimental feel, which gets stretched a bit in the revelatory finale, but by then I didn't mind.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower hurts. It hurts because it depicts the loneliness, anxiety and all-out quivering mess of adolescence in a manner not often seen since John Hughes' heyday.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The movie is tough-minded: It zeroes in on Patrick's anger at dating a closeted football star, and it doesn't let Charlie off the hook for his cruelty or self-pity.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Alison Willmore

    The film is also an earnest, big-hearted ode to friends as support and salvation, and to the talismanic quality a favorite song, treasured hang-out, or shared tradition can take on for a teenager.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Touching and brimming with the energy, enthusiasm and tides of teenage love and life, 'Perks' could very well be the next classic of the genre.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower finds an unexpectedly moving freshness in the old clichés by remaining attentive to the nuances of what happens within and between unhappy teenagers.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It offers the rare pleasure of an author directing his own book, and doing it well. No one who loves the book will complain about the movie, and especially not about its near-ideal casting.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    The movie's perfectly understated, warts-and-all sense of time and place will send any suburban Gen Xer in the audience flashing right back to their less-cautious days, when mix tapes did heavy lifting as calling cards.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    An honest, affection-hooking, coming-of-age drama which proves that there is life beyond Hogwarts for Emma Watson.

    Empire Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There is an honesty to The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a genuineness of experience that makes the movie soar when it just as easily could have stumbled.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    If at first I tried to resist these hapless Pennsylvania teens who'd never even heard of David Bowie, for Christ's sake, I was won over completely by the time Patrick and Sam are ready to graduate and Charlie has faced down his demons one more time. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    That's the feeling Stephen Chbosky captures in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, his exquisite adaptation of his best-selling YA novel about a Pittsburgh high-school freshman who doesn't fit in and then all of a sudden does, for a spell.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is a sweet surprise, a funny, touching terrific and quite wonderful movie that gets it all right about the joys and heartbreaks of growing up circa 1991.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Unlike most films about teenagers, the performances are happy-sad-realistic. Lerman, who plays the least expressive of the three principals, does a fine job at suggesting the active inner life of an externally inexpressive youth.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The acting is first-rate, and remarkably there's no sense that the sometimes tough material (which barely skirts an R rating) has been watered down to make it more palatable for a wider audience. I just wish Chbosky had changed that terrible title for the movie.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Perks deserves points for going beyond the typical coming-of-age drivel aimed at teens.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower tweaks the formula just enough to remain fresh and offer something a little new. It's sad, funny, warm, and nostalgic - kind of like high school, really.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Back in the director's chair for only the second time, the filmmaker, like his main character, is a little unsteady on his feet. But thanks to his stars, the film - like the book - is a smartly observed study of a troubled teen's first year in high school.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    As Sam, the wayward stepsister of Charlie's sardonic friend Patrick (Ezra Miller), Watson doesn't lose her cool, or her warmth, in a role that might easily have devolved into terminal sappiness.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Too modest to become a worldwide phenomenon, but sensitive teens and their older kin who pine for the '90s may want to take it for a spin on the dance floor.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    The empathy-generating performances by the charismatic young actors -- particularly the uber-confident Miller and a simultaneously punk-rock cynical and girlishly fragile Mae Whitman -- compensate for any missteps.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    A structurally messy but emotionally effective coming of age movie that gets a lot of it right. High school is an ordeal only the fittest can survive.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    While there are humorous and poignant moments, this angst-filled story of tender kisses, awkward dances, friends drifting apart, kindly English teachers, unrequited crushes and drug-addled partying has a nagging sense of deja vu.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ellen E. Jones

    Logan Lerman delivers a career-making turn in this sweet, sincere film. It might not be a massive hit, but it will certainly ease a few paths through the awkwardness of adolescence.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The results are likable, unsurprising and principally a showcase for the pretty young cast, notably Mr. Miller, who brings texture to his witty if sensitive gay quipster.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Lerman is suited to the title role in that he plays Charlie as wide-eyed and rather unmemorable. Watson doesn't seem entirely relaxed as an American teen, though she does serve as a lovely first crush. Among the adults making brief but notable appearances is Paul Rudd, as a sympathetic English teacher.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Rob Nelson

    First-time writer-director Stephen Chbosky adapts his young-adult bestseller with far more passion than skill, which suits familiar scenes of adolescent awkwardness aptly enough.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    It's populated by characters who are just too good to be plausible.

    NPR Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    As long as Chbosky sticks to the story of surviving high school, Perks has a modest charm. But a melodramatic last-act bombshell about Charlie's troubled past, is jarring – like the giant foot of Godzilla descending to squash tender Bambi. It's a case of too much, too late and, ultimately, from a different kind of movie.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Chbosky surrounds his hurting characters with the cinematic equivalent of a hug circle – which is sweet, but rather antithetical to tension-building.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Karina Longworth

    Chbosky plays this CW serial stuff for maximum earnestness, stressing the teenage tendency to assume that every new thing they're feeling is unprecedented in human history, keeping the tone just-moist-eyed throughout.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jordan Mintzer

    A heartfelt but rather generic coming-of-age dramedy.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Watson makes a smooth matriculation from the England-made Harry Potter epics to this movie's thrifty, six-week Pittsburgh shoot.

    Time Full Review
  • David Fear

    You can feel Chbosky's blood, sweat and tears oozing out of this highly personal project, but that holy trinity of fluids isn't enough to wash away the sense that you've seen this before - many, many, many times.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a perfect fit for its target audience – the Harry Potter kids who are following Emma Watson through her baby steps towards the stronger stuff.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    A risible, somewhat revolting piece of pop martyrdom, made for and isolated to the damaged middle class.
