Review & Comments

Leave your thoughts about Can't Buy Me Love.

Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Jordan Hiller The story of a nerd who pays a perky cheerleader to date him so he will become popular is almost pornographic in its uninhibited, primitive display of the confusion and insecurity that roils like a tempest in the developing mind of the American teenager
We Live Entertainment - 6/10 by Fred Topel Sadly, I feel the message of Can't Buy Me Love is more relevant than ever. Hopefully it shows young viewers that they can empower themselves if they're surrounded by adults who look the other way when they're being mistreated.
Common Sense Media - 6/10 by Ellen Twadell Teen comedy is dated but occasionally funny.
Empire - 6/10 by Gavin Bainbridge Nice performances, a useful script and a dignified ending all boost this film's appeal, but it is the workable simplicity of the premise that really does it.
The New York Times - 5/10 by Caryn James Can't Buy Me Love has an identity crisis that's a mirror-image of Ronald's own. He thinks he wants popularity at any price, though he's really a sincere guy. The film thinks it wants to be sincere, when all it truly wants is to be popular, just like the other kids' movies, so it sells off its originality.
Chicago Tribune - 5/10 by Dave Kehr Though it looks bright and the young actors have a couple of sweet moments, the picture is almost unremittingly punishing, hammering home its "be yourself" message with all the gentle persuasiveness of a Marine drill sergeant.
Miami Herald - 5/10 by Christine Arnold A John Hughes movie without Pretty in Pink director John Hughes, sure makes you appreciate the teens' auteur. Frankly, Steve Rash, who directs this copycat comedy, another nerd-gets-the-cheerleader romance, isn't fit to wear Hughes' hightops. Rash only tinkers with adolescent angst, without the progenitor's empathy for his audience.
Moviehole - 5/10 by Clint Morris One of my favourite guilty pleasures of the 80s!
Washington Post - 4/10 by Rita Kempley As written by Michael Swerdlick and guided by Rash, the theme dissolves into a bland parody of pubescent pain.
Los Angeles Times - 4/10 by Michael Wilmington There's a moral to the new teen movie Can't Buy Me Love: Money can't buy popularity. But it seems to have been lost on the movie makers themselves. What are they doing here but trying to spend their way to audience approval, success and glory? The plot is another one-sentence gimmick, the jokes juvenile, the morality a sham.
Tampa Bay Times - 4/10 by Eric Snider Can't Buy Me Love makes American teenagers look like stupid and materialistic twits. That would be all right if the movie were aware of itself and knew what it was doing - if it were a satirical comment on our society. But this movie is as naive as the day is long. It doesn't have a thought in its head and probably no notion of the corruption at its core.
User Review - 10/10 by Tyler g The best old time love story in my mind certainly makes you think deeper about your relationships
