Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...combines the perpetual do-over premise of "Groundhog Day” with the smug high-school alpha femmes of "Mean Girls.” Then imagine if it had about 85 percent fewer laughs than either comedy but 100 percent more scenes that will likely engage your tear ducts.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average While Before I Fall might not be for every grown-up — for starters, those put off by the word "bae”— it does work for teens looking for authenticity and a high-concept story that reflects their insular world.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average In the wash of clichés, Deutch keeps us in Sam's corner by bringing sincerity and hard-edged humor to the role. And Russo-Young embraces girl culture without condescending to it. That's enough to carry you over the sappy hurdles and lift Before I Fall above the YA herd. It's a small comfort, but we'll take it.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average All Before I Fall has to show for its efforts, in addition to heavy-handed invocations of the Sisyphus myth and the butterfly effect, are tired platitudes about the value of altruism and living each day as it if were the last.
