Movie Reviews

  • this is more than the usual teen drama about outgrowing childhood connections. It is about developing a deeper understanding and empathy; It even might inspire some stars and hearts, some zines, and other ways for girls to tell their stories
    Review rate : B+ by Nell Minow [Movie Mom ]
  • the film is intensely, almost radically humourless, which is hard to ignore and in fact hard to bear; Amy Poehler's female-empowerment film is like "Booksmart" or "Election" – with all the humour and satire stripped out
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • the film is frequently charming and zippy; The film's earnest tone is usually welcome, but it does falter in the film's final scenes, which follow the revelation of a secret that feels both obvious and far too heavy for the good-natured "Moxie"
    Review rate : C+ by Kate Erbland [IndieWire ]
  • sweet, clear-eyed Gen-Z female empowerment story manages to be just memorable enough through its charming ensemble and refreshingly inclusive political values
    by Tomris Laffly [Variety ]
  • Moxie's biggest letdown is its meant-to-be rousing climax, which is so underwhelming and unearned it dissipates whatever goodwill the film had accrued in the preceding two hours
    by Inkoo Kang [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Amy Poehler's teen comedy is smart, funny, likeable and winningly performed
    4 of 5 by Chris Hewitt [Empire Magazine ]
  • Amy Poehler's movie has its heart in the right place; it offers a compelling tale for teen girls who struggle with sexism in their own schools; Aside from its clear message, "Moxie" is simply an enjoyable teen movie and is undoubtedly worth checking out
    3 of 5 by Molly Freeman [ScreenRant ]
  • Amy Poehler's "Moxie", both smart and sweet, offers the blueprint for a revolution; The film frames a teenage girl's feminist awakening as both an act of personal empowerment and an initiation into a wider conversation
    4 of 5 by Clarisse Loughrey [Independent (UK) ]
  • Amy Poehler's "Moxie" offers a positive and hopeful message that sustains it despite some flaws
    3 of 4 by Robert Levin [Newsday ]
  • a smart and sweet and inspirational comedy/drama directed by Poehler and featuring a winning ensemble cast; this is a film that pulls off the difficult balancing act of carrying an important and uplifting message while delivering consistent laughs..
    3 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • a sincere if ultimately empty coming-of-ager directed by Amy Poehler; The end result is a movie that comes across as disappointingly vacant, a jumbled collection of good intentions gone wrong
    2 of 4 by Nina Metz [Chicago Tribune ]
  • a likeable but flawed high school drama; Despite its personal and pertinent narrative, "Moxie" fails to confront its core ideas of privilege and allyship. The film is so overt in its aims, it loses authenticity
    3 of 5 by Emily Maskell [Little White Lies ]
