Movie Info

In this fast-paced, outrageously funny, all-star romp, socially awkward high schooler Rick Stevens (Nat Wolff) is willing to do whatever it takes to win the heart of the girl of his dreams ... and he does mean anything. But love's a bitch! Particularly when your sights are set on the most beautiful and popular girl at school (teen queen and pop superstar Selena Gomez). (c) Vertical Entertainment

Critic Reviews for Behaving Badly

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

"Behaving Badly" is a dreadful sex comedy that gets worse and worse as its dopey story snowballs into relative incoherence.

January 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Behaving Badly is like an accidental thesis film about the Virgin/Whore divide in pop culture.

January 28, 2019 | Full Review…

This ruthlessly unfunny misfire should be quickly relegated to an IMDb trivia question after a brief theatrical bow.

August 4, 2014 | Full Review…

Selena Gomez is adorable and manages to float away unscathed. But other than that, it's an unfunny comedy, populated by irredeemable sociopaths.

August 1, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Behaving Badly is 97 minutes in a search of a laugh, each of them so punishing that viewers are left to spend most of the movie trying to figure out what went wrong.

July 31, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Aside from a few lines of juicy bad language, Gomez plays the innocent in this fast-paced screwball farce, which is full of cheerful vulgarity but dangerously low on wit, charm or narrative logic.

Audience Reviews for Behaving Badly


One good girl, several very bad choices. Mediocre Comedy! I did not get into the ×movie right away, the first 10 minutes are excruciating, but after the flashback, and the real story starts it gets much easier. However the ending is just as bad as the beginning, and is just a bunch of random solutions that do not all make sense, in order to stretch out some of the cheaper jokes. This is not really a movie for the kids. 18 year old Rick Stevens is willing to do whatever it takes to win the heart of Nina Pennington. In his quest to land the girl of his dreams, he has to contend with her psycho ex, his best friends horny mother, a manic strip club manager, a perverted principal, a lecherous priest, his suicidal mother, and a patron saint with a camel toe. No one ever said ×love was easy.

Yes, it's a terrible movie, but at the same time I found myself fascinated, and even amused, by just how outrageously stupid it was.
