  1. This is a pitch-black sendup of a classic femme fatale, a teenage version of the husband-killers in "Double Indemnity" and "The Postman Always Rings Twice," without the saving grace of passion.

    Pitch-black and bound to offend anyone who's not on its wavelength, Nick Guthe's entertainingly slick debut is a mordantly funny slice of lust, crime and sleaze life set in the world of L.A.'s industry elite: Call it 9021-noir.

    Aa saucy as a belly piercing, Mini's First Time is a black comedy that puts the soul of "Heathers" in Lolita's bikini.
  4. Reviewed by: Robert Abele
    Lacks originality.
  5. What begins as a twisted sex romp turns film noir-ish. Guthe is so anxious to show us what a larcenous tramp Mini is that he never shows us any other sides to her.
  6. Delectably vulgar for 20 minutes or so, almost too bad to be true, but because it lacks the demented conviction of real camp, the glint of madness that keeps a bauble like "Valley of the Dolls" afloat, it soon loses its cheap-thrills appeal.
  7. Reviewed by: Luke Y. Thompson
    Mini is impossible to like, especially since she delivers some of the worst narration ever spoken, and her final lines are like a big middle finger to viewers foolish enough to enjoy the film.

    This is one of the most twisted dark comedies in years. DO NOT GO if you don't like depraved humor! Went to Midnight show last night and it is awesome. Peope who don't like it are uptight. Expand

    Wicked entertainment. Total escapist fare, different from the long hot summer dull extravaganzas. The movie looks good, the actors are top notch, and it moves steadily along. Laugh out loud funny at times. I'd definitely recommend this one. And last, my congatulations to Vanessa Williams, I guess your man's a 10! Expand

    Hillarious, black comedy. Not for the feint of heart, but you won't soon forget it. Great acting from all 5 leads.

    Sexy, devious fun...almost peed my pants a couple of times. A relief after all the summer nonsense. First you think Alec & Nikki? But it works. And Carrie-Anne Moss is a comic revelation. Who knew "Trinity" was so damn funny? Expand

    Wicked...deep gut funny. A new classic in the vein of Heathers & Lolita. The most unusual film I've seen this year. It's stays with you. Great acting from everyone. Expand

    Alec Baldwin is fantastic in this film, but Nikki Reed is absolutely abyssmal. The story has been done, but this movie relies on the charm of its stars, and Nikki is sorely lacking. Only Baldwin and Jeff Goldblum save this stinker. Expand
