    A poorly structured film, trite writing, the acting is overzealous and the story is overstated. The film is so busy trying to be significant and important it neglects to entertain.

    Despite all the hyperventilating, the movie fails to consider what these crimes mean when, say, the residents of the White House happen to be black. The filmmakers recognize that identity politics are often a trap door. But it's one they're helpless to save themselves from falling through.
  2. A painfully miscast Parker nervously flips her hair and waves her hands, sitcom-style, as a do-gooding dean of students.

    Despite the film's haphazard choices and aversion to subtlety, Parker and Williamson come off as appealing sparring partners.
