Storyline Heading
Follows Stevie, a thirteen-year-old in 90s-era LA who spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - While centering on a young teen character, this period coming-of-age dramedy is not for kids, what with its depiction of teen drinking, drug use, and sex, plus constant language. The more familiar faces here, Katherine Waterston and Lucas Hedges, only have small supporting roles.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average While it's refreshing that Hill avoids some of the cliches inherent in the material (Stevie does not suddenly become a star skateboarder, find self-confidence, gain the admiration of his peers/girls/mother), the film's rough edges sometimes feel like a first draft.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good ...hilarious and heartfelt movie, set to a rock and hip-hop soundtrack that predates the digital age. The film feels rough-hewn and hands-on... ...Mid90s bristles with fun, feeling and the exhilaration that comes with risking life's hairpin turns. The skateboarding scenes are killer...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average ...Mid90s, as its title suggests, leans heavily on millennial nostalgia for the 1990s at the expense of drama, prioritizing throwback comedy, often dully, over cogent character portraiture.

The Guardian Full Review
Below Average Snappy direction and a heady sense of nostalgia can't hide a frustratingly flat coming-of-age tale that shows an actor struggling to find anything of interest to say. There are scenes that snap together nicely with some sharp and nuanced observations. But the film is saddled with uninteresting surface-level characters. There's a phoniness exuding from the entire project...
