Critic Reviews

    What gives the movie its coltish charm is Harrison's scene-setting feel for the indomitable brio of kids.
  2. If you're a rave virgin, it'll more likely make you feel like the guest nobody invited. And why would you pay nine bucks for that?
  3. A sweet-natured ode to rave culture saddled with a ridiculously clichéd plot line.

    I liked the music. I would rather have the movie's soundtrack than see Groove again--or at all.
  5. Reviewed by: Robert Horton
    The story of Groove... provides an ingratiating road map to a cultural phenomenon. Just make sure you drink lots of water while you're there.
  6. The music and wizard DJs in Groove are better than the dopey story.

    Reviewed by: Michael Atkinson
    Its characters and plot are almost wholly negligible. It's just a party.
  8. The best thing about this movie? It's short.
  9. 40
    Groove is less a work of subcultural ethnography than a curiously dorky act of hipster sincerity, less party movie than cheesy valentine

    Reviewed by: John Anderson
    There's not enough sustained musical momentum to simulate the energy of an actual rave; the characters are likable but unremarkable.
