Critic Reviews of "Back To School"Jay Boyar Orlando SentinelAugust 01, 2013
The vibes, here, are all wrong, and Dangerfield's unique timing is disrupted in most scenes.Desmond Ryan Philadelphia InquirerAugust 01, 2013
I mean no disrespect to Rodney Dangerfield in suggesting that Back to School is a comedy that belongs back on the drawing board.Kevin Thomas Los Angeles TimesAugust 01, 2013
Dangerfield seems to be setting the film's brisk pace and flawless timing himself.Gene SiskelJanuary 16, 2013
In this very funny Rodney Dangerfield comedy, there has been an important shift in Rodney's entertainment persona, a shift that has made this small film a monster hit.Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderFebruary 27, 2008
It's a good character for Dangerfield, one that veers him away from the 'I don't get no respect' pathos that comes too easily to him, and enough attention is paid to the minimal plot to integrate Dangerfield's classically constructed one-liners.Brian Costello Common Sense MediaJune 17, 2014
Classic '80s comedy has lots of profanity, innuendo.Candice Russell South Florida Sun-SentinelAugust 01, 2013
Dangerfield proves once again why he's one of the funniest men on screen.Joe Baltake Philadelphia Daily NewsAugust 01, 2013
Back to School is furious fun.David Sterritt Christian Science MonitorAugust 01, 2013
The profoundly strange presence of Rodney Dangerfield triumphs over sloppy writing and lumpy editing in this sometimes raunchy farce.Ralph Novak People MagazineAugust 01, 2013
This is at best a flyweight summer movie.Matt Brunson Creative LoafingAugust 27, 2010
One of the brightest (and least pretentious) comedies of the past quarter-century, the 1986 box office hit Back to School is the sort of film that's easy to watch repeatedly over the years.
