Critic Reviews for Sassy Pants

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (6)

Sweet and well-intentioned, Sassy Pants is difficult to dislike, despite its missteps.

Until "Sassy Pants" loses its nerve and turns somewhat warm and fuzzy, Ms. Sohn maintains tight control of the story of Bethany's liberation from her domestic prison to pursue fashion.

October 21, 2012 | Rating: 3/5

Although it attempts a kind of outré pose, the film ultimately proves a too-gentle juggling act that never quite soars.

October 19, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Sassy Pants has a slightly ludic atmosphere akin to another tale of teen alienation, Dear Lemon Lima, but it unfolds like a fable in which only Bethany doesn't feel like a canned caricature.

October 18, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

With its positive gay images, and even a perfectly executed two-step line dance, Sassy Pants is a feel-good movie for girls of both sexes.

October 16, 2012 | Full Review…

Landing between the twee, naturalistic and formulaic, Sassy Pants settles for cute, taking too few gambles to make a more lasting impression.

Audience Reviews for Sassy Pants


Slight, but enjoyable. A young girl lives at home with her flaky mother and obnoxious grandmother. Her gay father has left and her mother insists on homeschooling her and her brother. Shows her finding her independence and all the little set backs with first jobs and life in general. I liked it.
