Critic Reviews for This Is the Year

All Critics (7)

This Is the Year is yet another vapid teen romantic comedy about a nerd who's pining over his dream girl ... Expect to see a lot of annoying characters played by people who look too old to be in high school.

October 20, 2021 | Full Review…

Filled with laughs, crushes and heightened emotions.

September 29, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's heart's in the right place, and while I wasn't completely smitten with it, I thought it was cute. It was enjoyable and watchable.

September 24, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Finding the slightest of loopholes in romantic comedy formula, this mildly amusing trifle subverts genre cliches past and present, but remains predictably derivative.

A little more daring and I think this film would have impressed even more. But hey, it's still a feel-good time.

September 23, 2021 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Filled with strong performances and likable characters the story pushes all the right buttons but lacks the proper tension.
