Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
    • Excerpt: Standing Up avoids talking down to kids, exploiting bullying, and sugar-coating childhood adventures. Surprisingly superior to most new family films, D.J. Caruso’s coming-of-age drama offers a compelling ride that adults and discerning youths should both enjoy taking.
  • [New – 9/5] | Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
    • Excerpt: Standing Up has its heart in the right place, and punctuates some of the same ideas seen in the recent documentary, Bully. It’s a sincere and good-natured effort that could probably do with a bit more edge.
  • James Plath @ Family Home Theater
    • Excerpt: It’s most suitable for the entire family to watch—if, that is, you’re not bothered by pint-sized versions of Bonnie and Clyde.
