  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: will invariably draw comparisons to “Entourage”…but it has a few interesting things to say about reaching for success while staying true to oneself and it’s told with some real pizzazz.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: We Are Your Friends tells a routine story, but it tells that story with flashes of insight and admirable conviction.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Disappointing romantic dramas like this are why the August/September period is known as a dumping ground.
  • Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
    • Excerpt: For all its faults, and there are many, there is an energy coursing through it every time the beat drops that is tough to deny.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: The story of the little DJ that could shows remarkable visual creativity from director Max Joseph and avoids just enough tried and true coming of age clichés to provide a genuinely good time in the theater.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: We Are Your Friends is not free of clichés—take out the 1970s disco milieu and John Travolta and you have “Saturday Night Fever” for today’s EDM (electronic dance music) with Zac Efron—but as a peek into the untz-untz-untz music scene, there is a lively energy and a hyperactive rhythm to a throughline of youthful longing and one’s creative process.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • Jason McKiernan @ Film Racket
    • Excerpt: If Magic Mike XXL was a little too cavalier and free-wheeling for your summer party tastes, now there’s We Are Your Friends, which is like XXL’s syrupy, moralizing second cousin.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Hey, Mr. DJ. Put a record on.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • [New – 9/10/15] | Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: This one deserves a little better. Give it a whirl if you’re into the music.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Despite being jazzed up with woozy camerawork, kinetic editing and splashy graphics, ‘We Are Your Friends’ is old-fashioned hooey.
  • Sarah Ward @ Concrete Playground
