  1. Though Girls Rock! is nothing if not well meaning, it doesn't always feel like the best possible film on the subject.

    Girls do rock, and the final concert is both wild and cathartic. Too bad we haven’t learned more about these rockers along the way.
  3. As the camera follows four campers in a Portland, Ore., rock school for girls, the result is less a journey than a collage of random thoughts, circumstances and events. There's plenty of telling, but not enough showing.

    Aggressively upbeat docu, helmed by two males ill-equipped to bring any distance to the camp's pervasive feel-good feminism, tends to relentlessly reiterate points better served by example.
  5. Counselors and campers' moms tend to tear up when they talk about the lessons these girls are learning, lessons that go way beyond how to tune a bass, but this isn't exactly a "rah-rah" film.

    While the camp is all about liberation, the film hews to a predictable doc template and comes off as a drag.

    Girls Rock! It's not incredible documentary film making, but the subjects are funny and interesting. The final concert scene is great.
