“One of the pleasures of Jeffrey Blitz‘s film is that it immerses us in the fraught, competitive pressures of the high-school debate world — like Spellbound, it gets the details right. Blitz’s brainy kids, who run the gamut from the pathetically awkward to the brazenly self-assured, are a far cry from the usual horny adolescents Hollywood comedies serve up to flatter their target audience. They’re no less hormonal, but a lot more human.” — from David Ansen‘s review of Rocket Science (Picturehouse, 8.10).
