"There is hardly a shortage of movies about rock ’n’ roll, but there are few as perfect — which is to say as ragged, as silly, as touching or as true — as We Are the Best!."
- A.O. Scott, NY Times
"A joyous celebration of youth, friendship and rebellion."
- Tom Huddleston , Time Out
"Funny and frank in its observations, the film is a delightful snapshot of female friendship at that age, from the giddy highs to the melancholy funks, from the sustaining bonds to the jealousies and stinging betrayals."
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"It’s the rare film about adolescence that doesn’t seem exclusively targeted either to teens or to adults. Rarer still, it’s one that takes an interest in the nourishing qualities of female friendship."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
"Brash and sweet, We Are the Best! captures perfectly the aimlessness of adolescence, the waiting to become something that's so often intertwined with the desire to make something, to leave your mark on the world in some small way. "
- Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice
"What we have here is an exhilarating blast of a movie, full of heart but still punk rock... We Are the Best! is loud, crude, socially irresponsible and totally irresistible."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
