Critic Reviews

  1. Pleasantly modest, endearingly etched and briskly set to a pounding beat.
  2. Newsweek
    Reviewed by: David Ansen
    Lively, likable and refreshingly unsensationalistic about the drugs and sex that come with the territory, this techno-propelled mash note to the rave spirit sticks to the surface.
  3. A fun, well-assembled and -performed slice of life that requires no special affinity with the subject matter in order to -- ahem -- get one's groove on.
  4. What's infectious about Groove is the friendly, almost innocent way that its brat pack of digital-age bohemians seek liberation in a world where there is nothing left to rebel against.
  5. Chicago Tribune

    If you require fine writing, sharp plotting and consistently good acting, you will be in for a long 86 minutes.

    Divided into sections bracketed by the arrival of each new DJ and is enlivened by the edgy yet trendy environment.

    As a musical feast, Groove works well. As a celebration of tribal ritual, it's even better.

    The film's seductive lack of pretension will make a fan of you.

    Groove offers the most wholesome vision of orgiastic oneness imaginable -- it's a raver's version of "The Love Boat."
  10. Baltimore Sun
    Reviewed by: Ann Hornaday
    Has a sweetness to it that's irresistible, and its techno, trance and jungle soundtrack is as infectious and hypnotic as a contact high.
  11. This is not the addictive, hot-wired movie you want.
  12. New York Post
    Reviewed by: Jonathan Foreman
    Contains too many weak performances and predictable lines to succeed, but it's probably the best rave movie so far.
