WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Variety by Dennis Harvey

More antic and likable than it is laugh-out-loud funny, Adventures in Public School is handled with skill on modest means.

Los Angeles Times by Kimber Myers

The script from Rideout and co-writer Josh Epstein may follow a standard high school comedy structure, but they bring something fresh to the genre with their enjoyably geeky approach.

Movie Nation by Roger Moore

Is Adventures in Public School appropriate for young kids, the ones with Netflix as their baby sitter? Certainly not. This is some seriously adult, flirt-with-pervy “TV-14” doesn’t really cover it stuff.

The Hollywood Reporter by Sheri Linden

The writing and direction of Public Schooled put a bright spin on high-school antics, and the ace cast makes the grade, led by Judy Greer's long-proven down-to-earth magic and the deft physical comedy of Daniel Doheny.
