ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review Pretty Persuasion opens with more promise than it closes with. It doesn't take long for the cattily satirical tone to become monotonous as the characters refuse all attempts at development and the plot treads water into the shallows. The film tries, with sporadic effectiveness, to mine the area where Heathers, Election, and Mean Girls achieved success. But this lampoon of the "haves" and "have nots" of high school never takes off, and, at times, is more mean spirited than comedic. Making it all the more disappointing is the way in which Evan Rachel Wood's bitch-on-wheels performance is wasted.

Review So the movie is daring, and well-acted. Yet it isn't very satisfying, because the serious content keeps breaking through the soggy plot intended to contain it. The material in Pretty Persuasion needed to be handled as heavy drama, or played completely for comedy, and by trying to have it both ways, the movie has it neither way. The audience gets emotional whiplash, its laughter interrupted by scenes where lives are destroyed.
