American Teen skates some thin ice with its documentary ethics but, in the end, presents a charming and stylish if packaged tale. This is not compelling film making; it just makes you hope that these kids will lighten up and learn to enjoy life.
Kevin Craft. Funny and fresh, it won't break boundaries but it will make anyone thankful for growing up. Limara Salt. It's documentary lightly amusing film but it's also an unchallenging one which reinforces presumptions about kids rather than surprising with new insights.
It floats in the shallow end of filmmaking.
Dave Calhoun. The documentary curriculum is sex, gossip and self-pity.
Not exactly original, but ls girl photo book true. James Christopher. This film was for time marred american the persistent suspicion that the director wasn't being entirely straight with us. Peter Bradshaw. Burstein orchestrates their passage through school with some sympathy and no real revelations - except for the fact that she guesses, probably correctly, that most teenagers are nothing like as dangerous and bolshie as a lot of adults believe.

It pains me to say it, but as far as I can see it's an extended and slightly teen crafted example of those fake 'reality TV' shows. Mike Edwards.
American Teen follows the zeitgeist of documentary filmmaking, where truth is manipulated in order to create an entertaining film, which it no doubt is. Yet teen question of its authenticity will linger in the minds of some viewers. Matthew Pejkovic. An intriguing look -- alternately funny and heartbreaking -- inside documentary heads of today's teens.
